Manor Vail & Betty Ford Alpine Gardens hosts Chefs in the Gardens
Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, with a growing list of cultural and educational programs, is hosting its annual Chefs in the Gardens series this summer featuring live cooking demonstrations by some of the Vail Valley’s most celebrated chefs including Manor Vail's Eric Berggren, Chef De Cuisine on July 17, 2014. Those that attend the event will be able to sample the Lord Gore's Mango Crab Salad from the summer menu.
The hour-long demonstrations, to feature Colorado cuisine showcasing locally grown and organically produced ingredients, are free to the public and will take place from noon to 1:00pm in the Children’s Garden, near the Schoolhouse gift shop and museum in Vail’s Ford Park.
Inspired by an extraordinary passion for high-altitude flowers and plants, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, at 8,250 feet above sea level in Vail’s Ford Park, is the highest botanical garden in the United States, providing free access to an estimated 100,000 visitors annually.
The Gardens are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for which operations and programs are funded entirely through the generosity of donors. Conserving plants of the American West, its mission is to inspire passion for plants in high-altitude communities through beautification, conservation, education and research programs.
