Omni Amelia Island Resort unveils the lineup for its 2023 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, chicken coop and large collection of beehives which are used to harvest honey and increase pollination throughout the garden.
The Sprouting Project dinners’ schedule and themes for this year include:
Tickets for general admission to each dinner are $109 per person, while the special Truffle dinners held in December 2023 will be $199 per person. Each dinner will kick off with cocktails and light bites at 6 p.m. followed by a five-course dinner at 6:30 p.m. A cash bar will be on site and seating is limited.
Private dinners are also available for up to 10 people, starting from $350 per person without beverage pairings, and $475 per person with beverage pairings. Private dinners are based on availability and advanced reservations are required. Guests interested in booking this experience can contact the Concierge for reservations.
The Sprouting Project consists of a state-of-the-art aquaponic greenhouse, an expansive organic garden, a large collection of beehives, chicken coop and a barrel room. The Sprouting Project also provides ingredients to the resort’s nine restaurants and lounges including Florida palmetto honey dripping from the comb and organic Satsuma jam at The Morning Table breakfast buffet in Sunrise Café and fresh basil for pesto at Natural Slice.
