At The Chef’s Garden @ Epicurean we have a range of time-saving, unwasteful salad mixes with an option to suit every dining occasion. We are proud that our salad mixes appear on the plates of many restaurants in Hawke’s Bay and throughout the North Island.
The exact composition of each of our salad mixes varies with and is reflective of the season.
Our salad mixes are prewashed and sanitised using an organic approved product called Tsunami® 100.
Tsunami® 100 is added to the water during the washing process and reduces harmful pathogens by 99.9% and controls microbial growth. Used extensively as a post-harvest treatment this product is a safe and reliable way for us to ensure the safety and quality of our salad mixes.
