Aspiring chefs will delight in One&Only Palmilla’s Herb Garden, boasting a variety of fresh produce and a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen.
The intimate garden venue serves as the location for cooking demonstrations led by visiting Mexican chefs and resort experts. Able to accommodate up to 12 guests, each culinary class begins with a guided tour of the herb garden including a collection of indigenous chilies such as habanero, pequin, and poblano and herbs such as cilantro, epazote, sweet basil, and hibiscus tea plant. Each demonstration will be paired with a Mexican wine or tequila for guests to enjoy.
In addition to culinary classes intended to educate guests on the techniques and flavors of Mexican cuisine, the new Herb Garden will also play host to Iron-Chef type competitions pairing teams of four guests with one chef against another team of four in a light-hearted cook-off. Similar style culinary classes and competitions in the Herb Garden will also be made available for teens ages 14-17.
Designed to incorporate the four elements of Chi – water, fire, earth and wind - the One&Only Palmilla Herb Garden featuring an authentic Mexican fountain and torch also presents guests with an exclusive new venue for private dining and celebrations. Guests will walk away with a new appreciation for the techniques and flavors of Mexican cuisine that can be recreated at home.
