About Noah Tucker

Chef and Entrepreneur
Noah calls into question our ingrained relationship with food and drugs from an adult perspective. Challenging taboos and laws that have led us to a misguided journey of what’s a drug and what is food. Together with Anthony Joseph, he created High Cuisine to explore and challenge the way food and drugs are perceived and ingested. This combination is being explored at the highest level possible. Searching the globe for the best ingredients and the best drugs. They create bespoke dining experiences along with a tv show for you to take this journey with them. Noah disputes the notion that we only eat garlic, oregano, tarragon because they are tasty. All food and drugs have an origin and the majority come from a medicinal use case. The bigger question is why do we consider sugar or caffeine not as dangerous as weed or psychedelics and who told us this? Why do we consider French Cuisine Haute? Yet it’s filled with fat and sugars and offers very little healing power? Why is African or equator reigned food still being considered as ethnic cuisine in the global dining scene? Why do we think about food and drugs the way we do? Noah wants to question everything we think and know to be normal when it comes to food and drugs.
