Farm-To-Table: Terranea Resort Growing at Catalina View Gardens
Terranea’s farmland is expanding! For many years we have enjoyed the bounty of fresh herbs and vegetables growing in the mar’sel garden and throughout the resort. Fresh ingredients, including squash, basil, and green beans, are plucked right from our garden and used in many of the chef-inspired dishes throughout the resort.
Recently, we’ve taken great steps to further enhance the authentic farm-to-table experience at Terranea Resort. Under the direction of Executive Chef Bernard Ibarra, Terranea has planted a slew of new crops at the nearby Catalina View Gardens in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, just south of the resort. This additional farmland allows the resort to grow many different fruits and vegetables including heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, watermelon, corn, eggplants, strawberries, chili peppers, bell peppers and more!
You can taste Terranea’s farm-fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs in the chef dishes throughout the entire resort including mar’sel, cocktails at The Lobby Bar, infused in the gelato at sea beans, and at events such as the recent Celebration of Food and Wine, and the bi-monthly Chef’s Cooking Series.
You may also purchase house-made sea salt at sea beans, harvested locally and infused with herbs such as rosemary and lavender as well as smoked or Meyer lemon flavors, to use in for your own home.
