Outstanding in the Field, a traveling dinner series eloquently described by one participant as “a traveling culinary carnival, led by cowboy-hatted epicurean evangelist Jim Denevan,” has just announced several local dinners in August (“local” here meaning within a couple hours’ drive). The one at City Farm is sold out already, but there are still tickets for an August 3 dinner at Kinnikinnick Farm in Caledonia, IL, prepared by Stephanie Izard (of the yet-to-open Drunken Goat) and Ryan Poli (Perennial). The next weekend the dinner arrives at Seedling Orchard in South Haven, Michigan, where Brian Huston (the Publican) will prepare a meal highlighting apples on August 8 and Randy Zweiban (Province) will cook on August 9. Each event features a tour of the farm followed by a five-course outdoor dinner with wine pairings. Tickets are $200 apiece and tend to sell out fast.
