Nestled in the heart of Durango, CO, The Yellow Carrot represents the fusion of soul-inspired food, fun and philosophy. Founded by award-winning Chef Sari Suzanne Seedorf, our sole mission and purpose is to provide our adored guests with the most exceptional culinary experience imaginable, one that encompasses art, food, health, love, joy, wisdom, prosperity and gratitude – because we love you.
I never truly understood infinite love with life until falling in love with you. I am blessed knowing you grew just for me to nourish and satiate my body, soul and spirit with infinite love. Food, I don’t love and eat you to survive, I love and eat you to thrive. Everyday I gain profound understanding of the infinite possibilities of your love that guides my energy, heart and soul to pure peace, ultimate health, great pleasure, boundless happiness and fruitful ecstasy. You, my beloved food, are my greatest gift of all and every time I think about you or look at you I see the rest of my beautiful life right in front of my eyes. I fall in love with you everyday food, your vibrant color, your intricate design, your extraordinary scents and aromas and your exotic flavors and beauty. This is where unspeakable appreciation and gratitude lives in the depths of my soul for what the universe and creation is always offering us and in you I found one of the greatest loves of my life and closest truest friends. You have blessed me beyond my wildest dreams and the love affair I have with you, food, is one that will never be able to be fully explained.
More fun, food and philosophy in our fifth episode of the greatest talk show ever.
I just read your beautiful text - poetry- to Tom and am so delighted to have met you last night and to have had the experience of your radiance and bountiful well wishes for all who come to share your joy of food in the magical Yellow Carrot! What a gift of Creator in all ways!!! Thank you! You write like you create and cook…..with the art of weaving words and feelings into a blanket of love for the recipient to savor. You are precious and we look forward to getting together to share some time together. Our one word for you is Maha- Prasad…. A supreme gift from God…..
Sending you much love, gratitude and respect.
Oh my goodness now long overdue this message is! Your PHENOMENAL invite to dinner arrived while I was traveling and since I returned, I just could not find the words or artistic means to express my delight, gratitude, and admiration for what you're up to and how you are doing it. Having finally accepted my defeat, I'm resorting to the inadequacy of email.
Your artistry and generosity are beyond compare, Sari! I hope your October dinner was a huge success and that you're continuing on a most delightful trajectory of doing the things you love and basking in the benefits that you bring. I try to stay close to home these days and travel only by necessity -- but should my travels bring me to the Durango area, I would love to visit your magical restaurant!
Hope this finds you thriving!
Sending so much love,
Your love for life is ready to be received by all humanity✨💖
A few weeks ago, we had friends coming to stay for a few days. I decided instead of my normal baking for company, that I would instead pick up a dessert in town. I stopped at The Yellow Carrot knowing what great desserts you had although I hadn’t had any for a while. I picked up a lemon blueberry cake and it was to die for. My friends raved about it also. It was absolutely the best and perfect for summer. I’m so glad you’ve been able to weather the pandemic storm. I hope things continue to improve.
"Hats off" to you and your staff for the "Raving Fan" experience we had at lunch today! Yes it was "AWESOME" as promised!
Happy birthday! This is Lora (Calhoun) from last night. My husband, Clay, and I ate at your restaurant. What a delight it was to meet you! I hope you're having a beautiful birthday!
The Yellow Carrot was one of the most delicious dining experiences we've had, and we've traveled all over the world! It was the best kind of surprise to find, in Durango, a restaurant of the caliber you'd find in LA or NYC! The dishes are unique and adventurous and, well, it’s simply scrumptious food - all of it!
Clay and I plan to stop in for lunch or dinner tomorrow! See ya!
Oh my goodness - I cannot get over your generosity! I just got home from delivering food all over town! That was SO MUCH food! Both couples would not take it all - They insisted that I spread the love around even more so I got their pot pies warming up and some meals in the freezer & their breakfasts ready and then delivered some more of the food to 2 other families (one a single mom that’s currently unemployed and another family whose dad is a Doc in Farmington and hasn’t been home much). I felt they were all deserving. Oh and I dropped off a cup of chili & some cookies to my dad who hasn’t been feeling great. Oh and I did keep a piece of cake for my kiddos. 😉 They are all so appreciative and I’m sure you’ll be receiving thank you notes from some of them. I wish you could have driven around with me to see the joy on everyone's faces! Thank you so much - that was WAY more than I expected. I seriously thought it would be one take & bake meal per family I was picking up, not BAGS of food. I hope that generosity comes back to you tenfold!
Again, many thanks! We’ll see you on Friday for lunch!
You are an amazing light in this storm and I love your impossible burger . Love your restaurant and the way you give of yourself . Much GRATITUDE!!
You are so very welcome my friend! You are a very special person on this earth ! I miss you ! I’m afraid I’m sequestered in my home for now....can’t wait to see your smiling face ! Proud of you for keeping up the great fight!
Hang in there !!
You must be without a doubt the sweetest most terrific person in the world. Yo también espero que Dios le de a ti y a tu familia las bendiciones que se merecen para el resto de su vida. Sari, eres una persona increíble. Por eso es que todo el mundo te quiere tanto. Espero que tengas un buen fin de semana.
Gracias por ser tan fantástica,
We wanted to put in print what you have heard us say while dining at your cafe: You are serving some of the best food in Durango! With every visit & each new order, our palates are surprised & delighted. We leave always looking forward to the next visit - even planning ahead what different menu items we will be trying.
Thank you for the unique & delicious food you have brought to Durango’s dining scene!
Here is my description of that most remarkable breakfast where I met up with nearly forgotten taste buds......Flavor Bomb.
For the last 20 of my 68 years I had resigned myself to the nearly total loss of my sense of taste. My world shrank and became far less interesting…..until. One remarkable breakfast at Chef Sari Seedorf’s The Yellow Carrot. One breakfast burrito so well prepared it was a flavor explosion without the heat. It absolutely jump started my taste buds that had so long been dormant. A repeat meal weeks later verified the first. I doubt I will find its equal, but I am grateful that at least now I know that searching again for flavor can once again offer taste worth acquiring.
Thanks for making that even possible.
