worth saving for
we all have those friends that keep us connected with the "cool" happenings and spots. the ones you know you have to experience.
one of my connections is my friend patti from nyc. she just turned me on to outstanding in the field
the saving begins today.
read below about this amazing event, that may be in your neighborhood soon. i missed the spring bus, and the holiday evens are full, but i will keep my eye out for next spring and hopefully be able to participate.
"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.
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."
