Garden Fusions: Pineapple, Crown of the Caribbean

Garden Fusions is a unique interactive gourmet dining experience.  Every dinner has a horticulture theme featuring a special horticultural host. The host will share knowledge and advice on the evening's topic. Chef Pascal Olhats, Executive Chef of Cafe Jardin, is challenged to create a multi-course gourmet dinner to complement the theme.  This fusion between culinary and horticulture art create unique one-of-a-kind experiences.   

The delightfully sweet and tangy Ananas comosus will open a window into the exotic bromeliad family. Learn more about these tropical plants from fluffy and minute to barbed and formidable. Bromeliads have adapted in surprising ways! Chef Pascal promises to amaze guests with the popular piña in uncommon ways.
