As the historic Los Poblanos gardens burst into bloom, we are thrilled to announce tea season at La Quinta this May. The season will begin with Mother's Day Tea, followed by Afternoon Tea served each Wednesday and Sunday afternoon from May 12 through October 10. As our previous guests can attest, there's something transportive about spending an afternoon at La Quinta, and we can't wait to welcome you back for tea.
As cold days recede, spring fever is in full swing on the farm. Every year, our farm team collaborates closely with our culinary, mixology and product teams, exchanging ideas and identifying goals for the upcoming months ahead. These thoughtful conversations help determine plans for the field layout and crop rotation, giving the farm team a clear plan for the new season. Currently, trays of seedlings line the tables in the greenhouse as artichokes, kale, onions and peppers begin to sprout and grow, waiting their turn to be nestled into the fields. Carrot, beet and turnip seeds will soon be planted directly into the cool soil. Small harvests of herbs and greens begin to come from the hoop house, too.
Spice up dishes, desserts and cocktails with this smokey finishing salt
After experimenting with chiles from all over the Southwest and Mexico, our culinary team created this warm and smokey finishing salt with chilaca chile peppers smoked in Oaxaca, Mexico. We love it so much that it's available two ways! Find it in our classic glass jar, or in a vial as part of the Southwest Salt Set - a great way to try four of our signature salts.
