rick bayless garden tour.

Last week I had the opportunity to take a tour of Rick Bayless’s home garden in Bucktown. I had signed up for this last summer, so I was really looking forward to it, and it did not disappoint. It’s pretty big for city standards (but not farm-like huge), and what was most amazing that the production part of the garden ALL goes into the restaurant. Some of the food you are eating when you dine at his restaurants comes from his own, personal garden. Pretty cool! I also loved learning about how just about everything gets recycled/reused in some way, shape or form (composting, fed to the chickens, etc.). If you get a chance to check it out, I definitely recommend it.  Now, I need to get myself over to one of his restaurants and try some of his food!
