This has been on my bucket list for awhile! Outstanding in the Field is a mobile restaurant without walls. It’s a roving feast of farmers, activists and chefs hosting dinners from one beautiful outdoor location to the next. The 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.” It all started in 1998 with intimate dinners between a few passionate food artisans and farmers in Santa Cruz and has evolved to a national tour of dinner adventures complete with locally sourced food, a big red 60-year old bus, amazing regional stories and breathtaking environments!
