For the final event of America’s Oldest, Largest Garden Party, we asked all of the party “guests” to submit the best recipes their gardens inspired.
There’s a lot of culinary talent out there! Who are we to judge?!
We enlisted the help of Chez Panisse chef extraordinaire and celebrity gardener Alice Waters to help us choose the winner.
We don’t know how she did it, but she was able to whittle all of the submissions down to one.
And the winner is…
Susan Loube and her succulent Lamb Stew.
“I chose Susan Loube’s Lamb Stew. Here at Chez Panisse, we do a similar dish in the café with braised lamb shoulders along with other Moroccan spices including toasted cardamom, cumin, and coriander. I really enjoyed reading through all of these recipes–it was an honor to be the guest judge!”
