Last week spent the day at Villa Azalea. I love traveling, and grow most of our own produce organically. in CA. Villa Azalea tapped into both of my favorite things! The farm was amazing, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, onions, asparagus, celery, and herbs. We harvested the produce and they prepared a 3 course lunch for us. Lunch was set up riverside, and began with a crisp flavorful salad harvested by us, followed by a chicken lasagna made with the most delicate pasta that melted in your mouth, filled with spinach, poblano chilies, cheese, and a white sauce, topped off with a dessert a citrus tiaramisu.
The rest of the day was spent exploring the grounds, and relaxing poolside, or riverside or in the hammock amongst the trees. They have chickens, turkey's and a large pond that they raise talapia in. There were a group of Orange Faced Parakeets that were hanging out in the trees on the grounds for most of the afternoon.
Looking forward to staying in the lovely well appointed rooms next Feb. We will definitely be taking the cooking classes in the outdoor kitchen. Hope they will teach us how to make the lasagna!
If you like any of these: comfort, great food, growing food, a birder then this is your paradise.
