Amsterdam-based international prodco and distributor Rooftop Film & TV has partnered with Dutch producers Totem Media and cannabis brand and media company PRØHBTD to co-produce a travel and food format centered around dishes made with mind-expanding drugs.

High Cuisine (10 x 25 minutes) follows veteran chefs Noah Tucker and Anthony Joseph as they visit international locations, where local star chef’s introduce them to some of their region’s haute cuisine, then meet indigenous peoples to learn about their cultures and local mind-altering herbs.

By the end, the chef and a tribe member are brought together to try a new drug-infused dish devised by Tucker and Joseph.

The series was created and developed by Totem Media, Dutch photographer Floris Leeuwenberg and Tucker and Joseph. It will be distributed internationally by Rooftop.

“Totem Media’s vision and talent is just from another level, while PRØHBTD opens up a huge network, audience and marketing platform — the perfect business cocktail, ensuring flawless execution and distribution,” said Rooftop co-founders Jordi Van Even and Jan Maarten Groen, in a statement.

“We are making a big push investing in premium content that expands PRØHBTD’s voice and audience and High Cuisine is evidence of that,” added PRØHBTD CCO, Joshua Otten.
