Cooking Seasonal, Local & Sustainable
At Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach, it’s all about fresh, wholesome ingredients, and pouncing on at-the-peak produce as it becomes available.
Incredibly, while winter still grips most of the country, strawberry season is about to dawn in South Florida – with flavorful, vine-ripened tomatoes and delicate, nutrient-packed young microgreens not far behind.
Strawberries at the beach – what could be lovelier? Exotic tropical fruits such as mangoes, lychee nuts and loquats will all have their brief day, and the buyers and chefs at Canyon Ranch Grill™ will make the most of the here-and-gone bounty as it becomes available.
Because conventionally grown berries can be heavy with pesticide residues, Canyon Ranch makes sourcing them from organic farmers a priority, and recommends that you do the same. Other produce to buy organic whenever possible: Apples, peaches and nectarines, celery, peppers, greens of all kinds, potatoes and grapes.
