About Chef's Garden

The Garden inspires Chef Edward Ruiz “seasonal and spontaneous cuisine” featured at The Gardens of Avila at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. Taking root in our richly cultivated backyard, our restaurant uses a variety of produce from our own one-acre Chef’s Garden, as well as from area farmers, ranchers, and fishermen. The constant rotation of vegetables, greens, roots, herbs and edible flowers, results in an abundance of seasonally fresh ingredients for Chef Edward to incorporate into his renowned culinary creations.
