Al Fresco Dining on Steroids
Last night my bro sent me a post from coolhunting that showcased Outstanding In The Field, a company which arranges meals where diners can celebrate 'food at the source'. The meals take place in various locations in North America (US & Canada- many in NY and California) in unique settings both indoors and outdoors. The cuisine highlights mostly local ingredients and the talent of local chefs. They have just posted their 2008 schedule and, according to the website, will be accepting reservations soon (Get on the mailing list to be notified!). The price of the dinners range from $150-$200 pp, which includes 5 courses with wine pairings, gratuity, producer discussions, and a tour of the farm. I remember reading about this company in a foodie magazine just a couple of months ago and thinking that this was an opportunity not to be missed--- I definitely plan to sign up!
