Le Pommier Restaurant has its very own vegetable garden, overlooking beautiful views of the Stellenbosch winelands, which chefs regularly visit for fresh produce.
Le Pommier Vegetable Garden
Growing your own garden as a restaurant or chef… gives you the edge in the kitchen. It’s becoming popular for chefs to grow their own organic foods through their own gardens. It’s a fun way to ensure your restaurant produce is fresh and healthy with no additives. You can go as far as giving guests the chance to eat home grown produce directly from your garden while also giving them a tour of what you’ve grown so far.
Herb gardens are great because you can add flavour to your dishes using your very own grown herbs. Fresh herbs are undoubtedly better than their dried counterparts. Try growing herbs such as mint, basil, coriander, thyme, parsley which you can use in soups, salads and many other dishes. These can be grown in pots or outdoor gardens.
You can grow your own supply of lettuces, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, cucumbers and spinach. You can really go wild with your garden and it will be so satisfying having your own freshly grown produce.
