"Senses are heightened in the fresh air. And it's not every single day that you get to sit next to the person who planted the beans, raised the lamb, and shaped the cheese on the plate." - Jim Denevan, Founder
Rather than do my standard Saturday Soiree, today I want to highlight a soiree that I would like very much to attend. Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure providing dinners across the US an opportunity to eat the freshest meal possible side by side by those who planted, cultivated and harvested it. Long linen draped tables are set up in locations such as fields, beaches, historic barns or sea caves and all invited are treated to a unique and magical culinary adventure.
The experience begins with a tour of the location and then guests join local farmers, producers, culinary artisans and share in a seasonally fresh meal set at the long table. Meals are generally created by a local celebrated chef.
Check out Outstanding in The Field's website for more information including schedule and reservations. I would love to attend one of these dinners and know that it is sure to be a truly unique and wonderful experience.
