Homegrown summer tomatoes and basil are here!
“One of the things I’ll never forget about the years that I lived, worked, and cooked in Italy,” says Siena executive chef Harvey Harris, “is how every restaurateur and every chef and cook had her or his own vegetable garden in the back of the restaurant. In the winter, that meant fresh lettuce and root vegetables in the fall. But in the summer… man, in the summer… the best tomatoes and basil you’ve ever had in your life!”
Many of our guests do not realize that chef Harvey grows a lot of the produce used in the restaurant himself.
And not only is it grown without the use of chemicals or machines, it’s grown with the love, passion, and care that only a chef can give.
Chef Harvey’s homegrown tomatoes and basil are featured in Siena’s Insalata Caprese this week at the restaurant…
