Eden Project offers al fresco dining in the warmth of the Mediterranean Biome
15 December 2010,
For the first time Mediterranean, South African and other foods will be available in the Mediterranean Biome which is home to more than 1,000 types of plants from warm temperate regions around the world.
Because Eden’s main restaurant area was damaged by last month’s severe flooding, the new venue will operate during December to provide food and drink to visitors. Families can get involved in some of the cooking by preparing pizza twists which are then baked in a newly-installed wood oven. The Mediterranean-inspired range is available every evening Eden is open, with a smaller selection on sale at lunchtimes. The al fresco experience is accompanied by the sounds of Christmas carols performed by Cornish choirs and flickering lantern
