00:01:59,060 –> 00:02:05,150
area while you’re here

38
00:02:05,150 –> 00:02:06,740
don’t miss the resort’s classical

39
00:02:06,740 –> 00:02:09,500
labyrinth a 4,000 year old practice of

40
00:02:09,500 –> 00:02:12,710
meditation and reflection this is a very

41
00:02:12,710 –> 00:02:16,640
ancient tool of meditation it is not a

42
00:02:16,640 –> 00:02:20,150
maze you’re walking a flowing pathway

43
00:02:20,150 –> 00:02:23,930
that will eventually bring you to the

44
00:02:23,930 –> 00:02:33,670
center of the labyrinth was again a

45
00:02:33,670 –> 00:02:38,000
thought of Debra’s a case and that has

46
00:02:38,000 –> 00:02:42,290
been a very powerful source again of

47
00:02:42,290 –> 00:02:45,670
inspiration for our guests using that

48
00:02:45,670 –> 00:02:49,310
walking meditation as a metaphor for

49
00:02:49,310 –> 00:02:56,239
life one of the best parts of the

50
00:02:56,239 –> 00:02:58,459
vacation is the food and the golden

51
00:02:58,459 –> 00:03:00,799
doors gourmet spa cuisine can’t get any

52
00:03:00,799 –> 00:03:03,500
fresher or delicious I’m meeting with

53
00:03:03,500 –> 00:03:05,959
executive chef curtis cook in their four

54
00:03:05,959 –> 00:03:08,720
acre organic vegetable garden where he’s

55
00:03:08,720 –> 00:03:11,000
harvesting ingredients for today’s lunch

56
00:03:11,000 –> 00:03:14,030
the cuisine is is basically based out of

57
00:03:14,030 –> 00:03:16,340
the garden so anything that comes up I

58
00:03:16,340 –> 00:03:18,140
come out here for my inspiration I kind

59
00:03:18,140 –> 00:03:20,030
of do things in Reverse I don’t look at

60
00:03:20,030 –> 00:03:21,530
the protein and then the vegetables so I

61
00:03:21,530 –> 00:03:23,570
come out and when these guys are ready

62
00:03:23,570 –> 00:03:25,430
these are all our beets so we have a

63
00:03:25,430 –> 00:03:28,100
white beet a Bulls blood beat and then

64
00:03:28,100 –> 00:03:32,810
golden beets down there and just come

65
00:03:32,810 –> 00:03:35,239
out and start picking our beets here and

66
00:03:35,239 –> 00:03:38,030
then I will basically take this back as

67
00:03:38,030 –> 00:03:40,670
inspiration and create all of my dishes

68
00:03:40,670 –> 00:03:43,070
off of this our gardeners spend three to

69
00:03:43,070 –> 00:03:44,810
four months to get it to this point I

70
00:03:44,810 –> 00:03:47,959
can spend 30 seconds and destroy this so

71
00:03:47,959 –> 00:03:51,019
I prefer to actually stand out of the

72
00:03:51,019 –> 00:03:52,850
way roast it properly with a little bit

73
00:03:52,850 –> 00:03:53,250
of

74
00:03:53,250 –> 00:03:55,710
and garlic and have that via the

75
00:03:55,710 –> 00:03:57,870
highlight of the dish to me this is just

76
00:03:57,870 –> 00:04:01,670
absolutely cuisine at its best

77
00:04:01,670 –> 00:04:04,410
chef curtis often offers cooking classes

78
00:04:04,410 –> 00:04:06,360
for golden door guests and today he’s

79
00:04:06,360 –> 00:04:08,280
whipping up a delicious seafood dish

80
00:04:08,280 –> 00:04:10,950
that’s low in fat but rich in flavor

81
00:04:10,950 –> 00:04:13,110
well the cuisine is garden the table so

82
00:04:13,110 –> 00:04:15,330
we take it from our garden and bring it

83
00:04:15,330 –> 00:04:16,829
right in and again that dictates

84
00:04:16,829 –> 00:04:18,540
everything that I’m gonna put on the

85
00:04:18,540 –> 00:04:20,730
plate you source the right ingredients

86
00:04:20,730 –> 00:04:22,980
the right proteins you take out fat and

87
00:04:22,980 –> 00:04:27,930
sugar and you’ve got healthy meal the

88
00:04:27,930 –> 00:04:30,000
