A Chef's Garden Tour & Tasting Lessons in Lavender

Take a 45-minute walking tour through our historic gardens; then experience a tasting of historic flavors that come from our garden to your table. Colonial Williamsburg's executive chefs have partnered with our historic gardeners to offer a unique look at the culinary story of America's first foodies. Discover the bounty of the kitchen gardens located throughout the
Revolutionary City.

Meet one of our talented chefs, including Colonial Williamsburg Company's Executive Chef Rhys H. Lewis, Williamsburg Inn Executive Chef Travis Brust, Williamsburg Lodge Executive Chef Anthony Frank, Pastry Chef Rodney Diehl, and Traditions Chef Justin Addison.
