Fridays From the Garden is a collection of over 150 recipes from a year spent at Flamingo Estate. It’s a cookbook, but it’s more than that, too. This is the story of a house that became a brand and a brand that became a rallying cry for regenerative farming and Pleasure from the Garden.
Culled from the best-of-the-best recipes that were tucked into each Friday’s Regenerative Farm Box, this book is a testament to a new-found connection to the natural world at a time we needed it most. It’s a monument to the pleasures of the Flamingo Estate garden, the people that keep it buzzing, and the myriad ways Mother Nature takes care of us when we take care of her.
With stories by Richard Christiansen, a foreword by Martha Stewart, and recipes from local chefs, that nourish the body and soul by using warm spices, rich olive oil, and sweet honey. Fridays from the Garden is what happens when food brings people together.

A place to bathe, eat, and bask in the garden’s most precious ingredients.
In the early 1940s, a determined pair of young renegades arrived in California to realize their vision of an earthly paradise. High atop the hills of Los Angeles, hidden by a lush orchard and dense gardens, the flamingo-pink estate became a hedonistic enclave of sun-worship, folk mythologies, and psychedelic remedies — a secret haven for wild alchemy in the City of Angels.
Now Flamingo Estate is the home of Richard Christiansen, and, in the spirit of its origins, a radical celebration of pleasure from the garden. We carefully cultivate Mother Nature’s wildest, most precious gifts, at a time when we need them most.
