AMELIA ISLAND, Florida, March 10, 2022 – Omni Amelia Island Resort unveils the lineup for its 2022 Sprouting Project dinner series. Attendees are invited on an epicurean adventure as they explore the resort’s Chef’s Garden and Barrel Room, capped off with an elevated five-course dinner under the stars. Unveiled in 2014, The Sprouting Project has become a guest and local favorite. Dinners offer an intimate, southern-inspired farm-to-table experience, which is the resort’s culinary team’s response to hyper-local sustainable dining.
Each dinner is themed around a locally sourced ingredient, which is used throughout the evening, from light bites to dessert. Guests can learn about the resort’s sustainable growing practices with a tour of the state-of-the-art aquaponic greenhouse, extensive organic gardens, Barrel Room, and large collection of beehives that are used to harvest honey and increase pollination throughout the garden.
“The Sprouting Project dinner series has always been an exciting project for our team. This year we’re highlighting some unique flavors such as stone fruit, fig, floral and truffle and using them in really unexpected ways. that 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 it with our guests through these dinner parties.”
