Each 9-course dinner, served with 5 or 6 matched wines (non alcoholic options are also available), draws its inspiration from the rhythms of the season. For much of the year The Herbfarm kitchen gardens and farm supply the restaurant with an ever-changing harvest of common and unusual produce. Small growers and producers provide wild mushrooms, heritage fruits, handmade cheeses, and rare treasures such as water grown wasabi root and artisanal caviars.
Each day's menu is finalized only hours before the meal to best track the symphony of life on the land and sea.
If you are keeping up with my list of goals, eating at the Herbfarm is goal number 25 on my list. I just saw a preview of the menu for this week's Chambers of the Sea 9-course dinner and got so excited that I could barely read straight. I have to admit, every time I look at the menu still I can see are exciting words, really really exciting words. See that pretty mermaid above? That poster was designed just for this week's dinner theme. Ack! I am so excited I just might pass out.
