Presse Relase: Regard vers l'Ouest s'étend populaires, Jardin du Chef pionnier

Posté le juin 7, 2013

Tucson, Ariz. (Juillet 2, 2013) – En tant que « cultivés localement,"" frais,"et « ferme à la table » sélections sont top of mind pour convives, Primé Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort de Tucson & Spa a doublé la taille du jardin du Chef de son tout-biologique, un des plus grands jardins resort en l'État et un favori de commentaires depuis ses débuts en 1998.

A former private residence known for its blend of historic charm and modern luxury, Regard vers l'Ouest Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa has been growing its own herbs, fruits, greens and edible flowers for more than a decade. Chef’s Garden tours hosted by Landscape Manager Raymundo Ocampo are frequently mentioned as a highlight among guests.

Previous visitors will want to return to sample the garden’s new sights, smells and tastes. Key changes include the garden almost doubling in size to 2,400 pieds carrés; the addition of a 300-square-foot grape arbor; and an abundance of vegetables at the request of the resort’s executive chef, with new crops of tomatoes – such as heirloom varieties and classics including Celebrity, San Marzano, Black Cherry and Yellow Currant – and other fresh produce, including pineapple and purple tomatillos, golden scallop squash, cipollini onions and more.

“The expansion of our Chef’s Garden reflects national trends for healthy cuisine, but also the culinary vision of our new Executive Chef, Antonio Rodriguez,” says Jerry Jensen, the resort’s director of sales and marketing. “We’ve been doing this long before it was a trend, so we’re well prepared to give our guests the indulgent, yet healthy, creations they’re looking for.”

“Our chef requested more vegetables, because he knows very well how to use them,” says Ocampo, who manages the garden and is considered the force behind its success. “This is entirely new ground, so it’s full of nutrients and it’s producing a great summer harvest.”

Some of the garden’s seasonal highlights include artichokes, watermelon and peaches, which are used to create a luscious summer sorbet served at GOLD, Regard vers l'Ouest Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa’s award-winning, fine-dining restaurant.

The garden also includes more than 20 kinds of fruit trees, such as Black Mission figs, Santa Rosa plums, Asian pears and two varieties of apples; herbs like basil, romarin, citronnelle, mint and sage, all within easy reach of the restaurant kitchen; and edible flowers such as violets and nasturtium that are signature garnishes and add intriguing flavors to GOLD’s plates.

The garden’s beauty and bounty change with the season, Ocampo says, bringing new fruits and vegetables as the year passes.

“Our guests love to reach out and pick fruit off the trees,” says Ocampo. “We call it the Chef’s Garden, but it’s really for everyone to share and experience the desert up close, right here at Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa.”

A Chef’s Garden tour is an ideal addition to Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa’s Tropical Escape package, valid for rooms booked now through Sept. 6, 2013. For more information on the package and rates, visit www.westwardlook.com.
