Emphasizing Chef Fiorelli’s ‘terroir’ approach to his cuisine, mar’sel’s garden provides Chef with many of the fresh ingredients that are featured in his dishes at mar’sel. The organic mar’sel garden is designed and managed by Home Grown Edible Landscapes and is the site of hands-on gardening workshops and lectures throughout the growing season.
