What is the cuisine like at The French Laundry?
Our cuisine is a cuisine that is in continuous evolution, but is based on traditional flavor profiles that have reference points to them and certainly has a strong tie to French classic food. It is being prepared here in America, using the best ingredients that we could possibly get. When I talk about how important ingredients are, we continuously work with our suppliers to help them understand where they can improve on the quality of what they’re doing. Or, as is the case here at The French Laundry, where we have our three-acre garden right across the street and we’re working with our team of six gardeners to make sure that we are getting the vegetables at the right time – at the peak of the season for us to be using here at the restaurant.
