I have a major coop crush.
I cannot stop thinking about these adorable Bantam variety of chickens that have made The French Laundry garden their new home. It is definitely the equivalent to a five-star resort in the world of chickens....umbrellas for shade, a customized coop with a tres chic blue door, their very own rows of napa cabbage to munch on, and hand-fed snacks of strawberries, carrots, purslane, and more from the chief gardener.
While admiring our newest neighbors, we had the honor of chatting with their 'land-lord', Thomas Keller. It was one of those surreal moments for a foodie like me ~ standing in an organic garden, crushing on chickens, and making small talk with one of the most talented chefs in the world.
Sometimes life is so good you just have to pinch yourself.
