PostHeaderIcon Alfresco Dinners in Fields a Roving Culinary Adventure!

Every summer, Outstanding in the Field hit the road to bring farm to table cooking back to the source.  Their 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.  Owner Denevan and his crew of cooks, servers and coordinators travel all across America and beyond.  They host alfresco dinners at long tables in the middle of farm lands; whether it be a cornfield, pasture or vineyard, they set up a creative long table, chairs and all place settings.  Uniqueness at its finest!  Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure – literally a restaurant without walls.

Chefs from nearby restaurants in the area they are offering the dinners create dishes from local ingredients.  Just picked berries, organic greens, free-range meats and local wines just to get you started.  Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table.  It takes a lot of ingredients to make a farm dinner. Some of the more important ingredients are people.  Farmers work hard throughout the growing season, reap the harvest and take it to market for all of us to enjoy. Food artisans and chefs transform the harvest with creativity, respect for ingredients, attention to craft and a desire to give nourishment.  These are the people that make it all possible. These are the wonderful people who have dedicated their lives to work that benefits us all.  They grow, nurture, create, ferment, chop, boil, bake and plant their way into our lives.

The purpose of Outstanding in the Field events is to recognize these contributions to the table.  As the sun sets, guests grab plates, sit down and meet their table-mates.  While consuming their five-course meal with a local wine pairing the guests will be educated on where the food comes from and a chance to chat with new friends until the rooster crows!  This year Outstanding in the Field is putting on dinners in 30 states plus Canada and Europe.  For tickets, visit http://www.outstandinginthefield.com

PostHeaderIcon A Rise in Food Tours Across America

Sample a city’s finest foods (and learn a few culinary secrets) with these dining-savvy gourmet guides.  It’s the hungry tourist’s dilemma: You’re in a new city, you’re excited, you’re famished, and you end up eating at Applebee’s. But what you really want is local food, which is why food-tasting tours are booming. “The number of tours seems to have at least doubled over the past two years, to meet demand,” says Erik Wolf, president of the International Culinary Tourism Association.

Trips offer more than restaurant-hopping. Local tasting tours are half-day, guided outings at handpicked neighborhood markets, shops, popular restaurants, and under-the-radar eateries you won’t find in guidebooks. Typically costing $35 to $65 (depending on length and transportation), they include multiple stops for samplings, demos, and storytelling about local culinary history.

Tours are available across the country, and most can be arranged through Brown Paper Ticketing (800-838-3006) or visit Local Roots Food Tours to find out more about Sacramento’s City of Trees Food Tour.

This was a great tour. Lisa was very knowledgeable. The pace was good and it lasted just the right amount of time. The food was good and varied. The group size was manageable. Everyone enjoyed the day and many are looking forward to future tours Local Roots is planning.
