The Victory Garden

Episode #2504

THE VICTORY GARDEN celebrates how the good, green earth contributes to health and wellness when it sends West Coast correspondent Bob Smaus and Chef Marian Morash to Rancho La Puerta in Baja, California. Founded in the 1940s, with the mission of educating its guests about the mind, soul and body connection, the enduring popularity of this renowned health spa has proven that it was way ahead of its time. Through the decades, its organic garden has grown to encompass six acres and now provides all of the produce used for its internationally applauded spa cuisine. Chef Marian Morash is treated to just how delicious spa cuisine can be when she samples the house specialty prepared by Rancho La Puerta's Executive Chef and cookbook author, Bill Wavrin.
