An Evening with Le Basque at Fairchild Botanic Gardens
Le Basque Catering, originating as the name suggests, from the Basque region and surely one of the most developed food cultures in the world, is one of Miami’s elite caterers and event producers, curating unique and creative events for both private clients and special events at The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens.
Their flare for fantasy was clear from the minute I stepped through the gates of the beautiful Fairchild Botanic Gardens, being led by candles and handsome men holding flutes of chilled Pommery Champagne.
As an invited guest, the evening,“A Taste of Le Basque”, was designed to present the newest addition to Le Basque Catering, Executive Michelin star chef, Mikel Goikolea from Azurmendi, a 2016 Three Michelin Star Restaurant and #16 in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants in Spain, and Le Basque’s ability to amaze and delight us with their service and presentation.
We began the evening of almost 20 different courses, around a long table, decorated with bonsai and moss, where small red "apples" were hung from the trees, filled with foie gras.
Other notable dishes included, crunchy, herbed lobster Tamaki, tomato water aspic with anchovy and capers, crispy cannelloni of oxtail, a chick pea reduction and a goat milk brulee with a thyme and egg yolk gelato. Hendricks Gin cocktails were provided.
Le Basque is the preferred caterer for Fairchild Gardens’ events and weddings and produce some of the finest events both here in South Florida and in Spain.
