Meet Jamie Evans, the founder of The Herb Somm, a cannabis blog and lifestyle brand that is focused on the gourmet side of the industry.
Jamie is an educator, host, and writer specializing in cannabis, CBD, food, recipes, wine, and the canna-culinary world. As a well-known CBD and cannabis personality, she has been contributing to POPSUGAR (@popsugar), The Clever Root (@thecleverroot), among other publications specializing in cannabis and CBD lifestyle features for the modern consumer.
In addition, Jamie is the co-editor of GoldLeaf’s (@gldleaf) acclaimed Cooking Journal and is working on a book to be published by Fair Winds Press of Quarto Publishing Group scheduled to release next spring 2020.
As an industry leader, she was also recently named as one of Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s (@wineenthusiast) Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers in 2018 and as a 2018 Innovator by SevenFifty Daily (@sevenfiftydaily), both recognizing her efforts in the cannabis industry. She loves to teach people how to pair cannabis with wine and you can hire her for your next party.
She also hosts an event series called Thursday Infused, that highlights different cannabis chefs and brands throughout California.
I asked her who she would invite (dead or alive) to one of her dinner parties, and she said, “choosing just three people to invite to a dinner party would be hard for me because I love to host big gatherings! But if I had to choose, I would invite Anthony Bourdain because he is an absolute legend in the culinary space, Alice Waters, who is the founder of Chez Panisse and pioneer of the organic food and farm-to-table movement, and Charles Heidsieck, the founder of Charles Heidsieck Champagne, my absolute favorite Champagne House located in Reims, France established in 1851. The food and wine at this table would be out of the world delicious, am I right? Plus, I’d bring the cannabis for a perfect pairing.”
