Eat: Outstanding in the Field

Farms across the country
10.07.2010 | by: Meghan

The roving dinner party Outstanding in the Field has been written about everywhere. And it deserves every bit of ink. Huge farm feasts sprawling out in fields, cliffs, caves, beaches, orchards, hillsides and stables across the country with a mission to re-connect diners to the land and the origins of their food, while honoring the local farmers and artisans that cultivate it. They sell out every time. One of my favorite interiors photographers—and trusted foodie friends—Bob Coscarelli and his wife Karen scored a seat at Chicago’s Paul Kahan’s spread at Kinnickinnick Farms in Wisconsin. He says it easily makes it into the top-10 dining experiences of his life. And he snapped this beautiful photograph.

In Detroit, the concept is a little less polished. Like most things in Detroit, it’s pretty underground. Not literally. ClandesDine diners find out an hour beforehand where to go for the locally sourced meal (usually prepared by a rotating host of local chefs): an abandoned building downtown, a former elementary school gone indie film theater. This Monday, the third installment. There’s no website; no press flurry. The event is generated entirely by word of mouth. Expect a full report next week.
