Outstanding in the Field

As self described 'foodies' we are always on the hunt for like minded people. A few months ago we were lucky to have one of our clients introduce us to 'Outstanding in the Field', a group of traveling foodies that set up these amazing dinners for people on various farms and remote locations throughout the country (and abroad). The very notion of this is right up our alley! The coordinators contact farmers and local purveyors to choose a venue and then they invite a local chef (or team of chefs) to create a menu that highlights the best ingredients that the area has to offer. Diners graze at super long banquet style tables and enjoy the bounty of the summer months. The team makes their way across the country (typically west to east coast), making stops along the way. The exact location and menu remains a secret until just a few days prior to the event, which keeps it all the more interesting! You buy tickets on their website and wait to hear where, exactly, you'll be eating and what time to arrive. It's so fabulous! Check out the website, the list of locations and dates will be published on March 20, the first day of Spring - we'll be waiting anxiously to book our spots!
