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.

Please wear comfortable shoes.

Colonial Williamsburg's chefs and chef apprentices participate in the "From Our Garden to Your Table" program. They plant and care for kitchen gardens in the Revolutionary City—and prepare the harvested produce for guests of the restaurants at the Williamsburg Inn and Williamsburg Lodge. 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.

Go beyond your typical pesto in this Chef's Garden Tour and Tasting. Williamsburg Inn Executive Chef Travis Brust will take you on an unexpected tasting journey with basil and delight your palate with creative dishes inspired by this common herb.

(Tickets must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door)
