Ici's herb garden

Our favorite restaurant in Forte Greene, Ici, was recently featured in The New York Times: The Local for creating a garden fit for a chef.  Our friend and owner of Ici, Catherine Saillard, commissioned a foodscaping duo to create a garden of fruiting shrubs and flowering herbs.  The  edibles range from the usual suspects, rosemary and thyme, to items you can’t find at Home Depot, such as chocolate and orange mints and Northern sea oats, which is ground to create flour.

Catherine is busy creating mouth watering cocktails and dishes with the delectables.  We’ve made reservations for Saturday.   Can’t wait to see what she serves up!
