Hedonistic, Yet Health Conscious
A brilliant initiative by O Bar & Dining’s chef-come-healthy eating advocate Michael Moore, is set to position O as the place to drink cocktails this summer.
Inspired by the growing movement towards eating and drinking all-natural, and consuming less sugar, Michael Moore and his in-tune bar crew, have developed a range of cocktails which will make their debut on the menu at O Bar this spring.
Aptly named Healthy Culture, Green Fingers, Trail Mix and the likes, the range of new cocktails use a selection of natural ingredients, sugar alternatives and ripe seasonal produce, raising the bar not only at O, but amongst its peers.
At O, the Bar team work in tandem with Michael and the kitchen crew; together they scour the markets to source seasonal, new and interesting ingredients, then create drinks by the same process that the chefs use to create new dishes. They taste, smell, blend ingredients, referencing both traditional and contemporary flavour pairings.
“If you’re familiar with my Healthy Eating Philosophy which I’ve practiced for years, this is me taking it one step further. Cocktails focused on season, inspired by health, sourced from nature. Or we could say barman, chef and producer driven cocktails?” jests Chef/Owner Michael Moore of his healthy eating-come-drinking philosophy.
At the heart of O, there’s a very special food story. Drawing inspiration from the healthy eating philosophy in chef/owner Michael Moore’s best selling cookbook series Blood Sugar, menus combine the sensory high of fine dining with healthy influences from Michael’s personal experience as a diabetic. It’s a unique, unexpected food journey that never compromises on flavour, integrity and enjoyment.
