Re-launching on Wednesday, November 6th, Signature Chef Julie Frans invites hotel guests and local visitors to attend complimentary weekly tours and tastings of the hotel’s Organic Garden. We are growing many of the specialty ingredients that we utilize in our food and drinks, including tomatoes, lemongrass, Cuban oregano, kale, arugula, mustard greens, edible flowers, and much more. The tour commences in the sandy area in front of the garden’s entrance. Chef Julie identifies the organic produce, herbs and greens in the garden and prepares tasting bites utilizing ingredients from the garden. Wednesdays, 5.00pm – November 6th through May 28th.
Through the complimentary weekly garden tour and tasting, Chef Julie hopes to connect with guests in an effort to enhance their overall experience with food and life. You might even pick up a few tips and techniques on cooking, growing, gardening, and whole living. For more information, please call Essensia at 305.9085458.
