Join Chef Julie Frans for a private tour and tasting of Essensia’s Organic Chef’s Garden at The Palms Hotel & Spa. Hosted every Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., guests are welcome to attend the tour, which will commence in the sandy area in front of the garden’s entrance. Chef Julie will identify the organic produce, herbs and greens in the garden and prepare tasting utilizing ingredients from the garden.

Currently, Essensia’s Organic Chef’s Garden features many interesting herbs, such as thai basil, lemon basil, african blue basil, lemon balm, lemon grass, pineapple mint, tarragon, kaffir lime, lavender, and orange mint, as well as tomatoes, edible flowers, and garden greens like chard, collards, and kale. Ingredients are picked daily and used in our delicious Essensia recipes including our Grouper En Pappillote featuring Lemongrass and Thai basil, Seared Salmon with Lemon Balm Pesto, and “The Local” Vegetarian Sampler featuring garden herb chimicurri and the chef’s pick of local veggies. The herbs and produce grown will change from time to time according to the seasons.

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 305.908.5458.

Starting November 7, every Wednesday at 5:00 p.m.
