Birmingham food lovers are being given the opportunity to taste the taters and hear the history at a unique dinner on Friday 27th February.
Part of its Source dinner series, city centre restaurant Opus at Cornwall Street will be hosting potato-pros Lucy and Anthony Carroll, of Tiptoe Farm in Northumberland, for their famous Potato Dinner, taking diners on a four-course journey through the history of the farm and its range of specially-grown Heritage Potatoes.
Returning to Opus for their fifth year, the Carroll family first started farming potatoes in the 1930s, with Lucy and Anthony now growing over 20 varieties on their 50-acre farm, which was once named the most beautiful farm in Britain*.
The dinner is the first in this year’s series, with Opus at Cornwall Street hosting a number of evenings throughout 2015 providing diners with the opportunity to meet the restaurant’s suppliers and to hear their stories.
Ann Tonks, managing director at Opus at Cornwall Street, said: “To have Lucy and Anthony back is a real treat for our diners. It’s the Carroll’s dedication to quality, as well as their commitment to sustainable farming, that sees our relationship with them continue to grow.
“The Source dinners are an opportunity for our chefs to shine. Their knowledge of our producers and their produce means that it's easy for them to combine ingredients and talent into some astonishing, tasty and sustainable dishes. Last year there was even some intricate potato work in the desert."
