In the last few years people have noticeably become more and more involved in learning about where their food comes from and how it gets on their plate. The terms “organic” and “GMO” are no longer mysterious and scary and most people have actually made a switch toward organic, clean, natural food sources. You now have the chance to educate yourself further and literally eat off of the land. Join “Outstanding in the Field” for a delicious dinner on a California farm and see the ins and outs of farming. Bring your questions, your fork and your appetite to this educational and delicious dinner.

About Outstanding in the Field

Our mission is to re-connect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it.2011_tour_photo

Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure – literally a restaurant without walls. Since 1999 we have set the long table at farms or gardens, on mountain tops or in sea caves, on islands or at ranches. Occasionally the table is set indoors: a beautiful refurbished barn, a cool greenhouse or a stately museum. Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table.

Ingredients for the meal are almost all local (sometimes sourced within inches of your seat at the table!) and generally prepared by a celebrated chef of the region. After a tour of the site, we all settle in: farmers, producers, culinary artisans, and diners sharing the long table.
