The Midlands’ most sustainable independent restaurant will be taking the topic of seasonal and ethical farming from the field to the table in its series of Source Dinners.
Opus at Cornwall Street will be hosting five Source Dinners, at which food enthusiasts can taste the produce, meet the suppliers and hear their stories and history, as well as learn why sustainability is at the heart of everything they and Opus do.
Kicking off the Source Dinner series is the Heritage Potato Dinner on Friday March 11.
Hosted by Lucy and Anthony Carroll of Tiptoe Farm in Northumberland, the dinner will feature their range of specially-grown heritage potatoes.
In addition to the Heritage Potato Dinner, the city-centre restaurant, which was recently awarded the highest possible rating of Three Star Sustainability Champion by the Sustainable Restaurant Association, is inviting food lovers to enjoy a range of different source nights throughout the year.
There’s a Fish Dinner with M&J Seafood, a Vegetarian Dinner with Worcester Produce, a Champagne Dinner with Laurent Perrier and a rare breed Beef Dinner.
Ann Tonks, director at Opus at Cornwall Street, said: “Ethical and sustainable sourcing really is at the heart of our menus.
“Not only does sourcing our produce from great British suppliers mean that we are supporting the local farming and fishing industries as well as reducing our carbon footprint, but we believe there is a direct link between ethical, quality sourcing and the astonishing flavours of the finished dish.
“Our Source Dinners are always popular amongst our guests as they are a unique way of introducing our customers directly to our suppliers.
“From sharing the interesting tales that farming can bring, to understanding more about the commitment and dedication they put into their produce, we can’t wait to share their passion with our customers.”
Each ticket includes an aperitif, a five-course dinner and matching wines.
