events: March 2008 Archives

Today a friend from California tipped me off to an organization called Outstanding in the Field that puts on rather extravagant farm dinners.  "Outstanding in the Field events feature a leisurely tour of the hosting farm followed by a five course, farm-style dinner at our long table set in a scenic spot. Dinner is accompanied by a wine paired with each course. Diners are joined at the table by the farmer, food producers, a winemaker and other local artisans associated with the meal."

Many of the dinners are in California, but we New Englanders are fortunate to have one in Boston on September 5, exact farm location TBD. (I'm guessing that the pic below, which I poached from the OitF website, is of the 2007 Boston dinner.)

The price is a whopping $200 per seat -- and while I don't think that it should cost an arm and a leg to "celebrate food at the source" (as the OitF folks put it), my foodie friend assures me that this is one experience worth paying a premium for.

If you want to join us (yes I ponied up the cash), act soon.  Eleven of the 27 2008 dinner dates are already sold out.
