AMELIA ISLAND, Fla., March 10, 2022 – Omni Amelia Island Resort unveils the lineup for its 2022 Sprouting Project dinner series. Attendees are invited on an epicurean adventure exploring the resort’s onsite chef’s garden and Barrel Room topped off with an elevated five-course dinner under the stars. Unveiled in 2014, The Sprouting Project has become a guest and local favorite. The dinners offer an intimate southern-inspired farm-to-table experience which is the resort culinary team’s answer to hyper-local sustainable dining.
Each dinner is themed by a locally sourced ingredient, which is used throughout the entire evening from light bites through dessert. Guests can learn more about the resort’s sustainable growing practices via a tour of the state-of-the-art aquaponic greenhouse, expansive organic gardens, Barrel Room and large collection of beehives which are used to harvest honey and increase pollination throughout the garden.
“The Sprouting Project Dinner Series has always been a passion project for our team. This year we highlight some unique flavors such as Stone Fruit, Fig, Blooms and Truffle and use them in some truly unexpected ways which will surprise and delight guests,” said Executive Chef Omar Collazo. “We’ve worked so hard over the years to build this sustainable space, and we love sharing this with our guests through these dinners.”
