#Tastymorsels: changes in the Midlands foodie scene. 


Last week I mentioned that chef Nathan Eades had sadly closed his Bromsgrove restaurant Epi and was in the process of looking at properties in Birmingham to re open in or around the city. Unfortunately that too has now fell through. Though Nathan hasn’t disbanded the business, things are on hold. 

The good news is that Nathan has been appointed Head chef at St Andrews Town Hotel in Droitwich Spa in Worcestershire. Droitwich is 6 miles from Bromsgrove and is a pretty spa town in and around the lovely Worcestershire hills. St Andrews is well known in the area for a been a good wedding venue and has 31 rooms. 

Nathan has told me that he will be cooking food in the same style as Epi, so that’s great news for vegetarians as you know I’m a big fan of his innovative and seasonal dishes. He is due to begin his head chef position in June. 

More to follow.

The big change that was announced in the Birmingham restaurant scene last Week was that chef David Colcombe has left two AA rosette and Veggie Foodie favourite Opus Restaurant, who also form part of the group with Cafe Opus and Bar Opus. This is by ‘mutual agreement’ in order ‘to pursue other interests’. 

I wish David all the best in his future endeavours and thank him for some superb vegetarian food over the years, including the wonderful vegetarian source dinner last year which Ruth and I had such fun at. 

I’m sure it won’t be long before we hear more news on this.
