A Walk in the Garden with Escoffier



I can only imagine what the famous French chef Auguste Escoffier would say to a young inspired chef on a walk through a vibrant, thriving, organic Washington garden today.  He certainly would be familiar with our tough economic times and even war.  He might recall the scarcity of food and hardships of the siege of Paris.  Truly our hardships might pale in comparison.  Looking at the bounty of substance we have available to us, brought to us by our dedicated local farmers and growers he could only say that we are blessed by the powers that be with the most fundamental and necessary commodity of any chef.  Access to the best possible ingredients!
