Come July you’ll also find us out cooking on the farm, with the great team from Outstanding in the Field, the group of culinary vagabonds who stage white-tablecloth dinners in farm fields across North America. On Thursday, July 16 we’ll be cooking up a five course farm-to-table dinner to be enjoyed at a long communal table at Oxbow Farm in Carnation.
Working out of an al fresco kitchen, we’ll be making some great dishes to showcase the crops from Oxbow along with food from the artisans of Stokesberry Farm and Black Sheep Creamery and the wines from Novelty Hill - Januik Winery. The dinner starts with a 4pm tour of Oxbow by Luke and Adam. Guests then take their seats at the long, linen-draped expanse set between the soil and the sky. During dinner, the farmers and producers from Oxbow, Stokesberry, Black Sheep and winemaker Michael Januik will share the table with guests and talk about where the food on the plate and wine in the glass came from and what it takes to get it there.
Cost of the July 16 Outstanding in the Field dinner is $180, with wines paired to each course throughout the five-course meal. For more information and to make reservations visit http://www.outstandinginthefield.com/. We'd love to see you there.
