When I think Open Farm Community, I think urban farming and local. Just walking into the verdant premises inspires one to go all green thumbed – almost all. I have no interest in growing my own greens, but am more than happy to support the movement by eating what’s grown locally. We all do our part. 😊
Dropping in to Open Farm Community, from now till 3 Dec, is the Paris Popup, an award-winning nomadic collective who travel the world, espousing the concept of sustainable and local, working with like-minded kitchens to share their French-inspired and local creations.
Thursday was spent indulging in a smorgasbord of delights, around 80% of which were made from ingredients sourced from, in and around Singapore. From a heady prawn chawanmushi to a fermented black bean tapenade-dressed pearl grouper to a strangely satisfying sweet potato and gula melaka tart, I ravished them all.
Accompanied by lashings of natural wines, it’s a wonder I made it back to work – but hey, I am nothing if not the picture of restraint. 😊
Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect at this takeover of Open Farm Community. They are sharing plates designed by chef Harry Cummins (who has trained at twice-ranked World’s Best Restaurant El Cellar de Can Roca in Girona) but you could always choose to be selfish, of course.
And there is an omakase option of an 8-course for $65 per person, with a $50 top-up for pairing of wines, curated by sommelier Laura Vidal featuring an eclectic selection of natural wines. This, I heard, is forming the framework for Open Farm Community’s desire to move to a 100% natural wines presentation in the future.
Happy Eating Local!
