a photo tour of Thomas Keller Garden, French Laundry Garden and the Ad Hoc Garden. vibrant color, bright beauty and bountiful produce abound!
French Laundry Garden
I have talked a few times about how much we like Thomas Keller’s restaurants.
One aspect I really love about Keller’s California properties are their gorgeous showcase gardens. Walking through them is an event in itself, seeing where the menu’s food comes from and appreciating Keller’s passion for sustainability.
The French Laundry Garden is the most famous, located across the street from the restaurant. TFL garden is three acres, and supplies Keller’s three restaurants in the area with just-picked produce.
Ad Hoc Garden
Much smaller but equally beautiful, the Ad Hoc Garden sits directly behind the restaurant. After our dinner we enjoyed a warm early evening garden walk.
We walked through rows of vegetables.

Walking out of the garden, I spotted one of my favorite trees:
Sustainable meets function meets artistic beauty. A visual feast equal to the delectable feast inside…
