For those who truly care about their food – not just the dishes’ finished flavors but also the process of its production and the people involved – the best restaurant of all might be one without walls. Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure, an organization dedicated to reconnecting diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honoring the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it. The team travels to farms and gardens, mountain tops and sea caves, sprawling ranches and tiny islands, hosting meals prepared using local ingredients by a celebrated chef of the region and honoring the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table.
And now they are coming to Oklahoma. Outstanding in the Field’s first foray into the Sooner State will be Sunday, October 21 at the certified-organic Crestview Farms in Edmond. The experience begins with wine, appetizers and a tour of the farm with host Susan Graff, followed by a sumptuous four-course meal featuring local ingredients from the farm and prepared by chefs Jonathon Stranger and Russ Johnson from Oklahoma City locavore restaurant Ludivine – served family-style at a spectacular outdoor table.
It’s a gastronomic delight unlike any other, and the long table’s seats are filling up quickly. For more information visit outstandinginthefield.com.
