Local chefs, farmer work together to present fanciful meal

Outstanding in the Field is described as “a roving culinary adventure,” a kind of restaurant without walls. The founders of this moveable feast promote the use of local produce in local meals prepared by local chefs to be enjoyed by local foodies.

Roughly 150 people took part in the special $180-per-ticket dinner which celebrated not just the chef who prepared the meal, but also the farmer and the fields that helped produce the meal.

As people drank a glass of Riesling, they watched as chef John Currence walked through the garden, selecting peppers, radishes and other vegetables to help add to the meal. (October 8, 2010, Page 1B)
