Symposia

Why Symposia?

Why does the Gardens sponsor monthly a four-course, family-style, chef-driven, wine-paired dinner with a GuestPresenter?
Call it, Kitchen Lab. Call it, forced creativity. Call it, a stressy mind-bender that makes the kitchen staff think and solve in new ways, aerates our sluggished brains, and provides new dishes for the Gardens that, over the past three years, have become Gardens' faves.
