Outstanding in the Field Back on the Road for 2021 Tour.
Outstanding in the Field is heading back out to the fields. After our long, collective hiatus, the traveling restaurant without walls will once again welcome diners to its iconic table set between earth and sky for communal meals in fields, grasslands, vineyards and beaches in the U.S. and around the world.
“With months of isolation finally come to an end, we look forward to celebrating the flowering of optimism and hope as we come together to enjoy that most ancient and basic act of humanity – sharing a meal,” said OITF founding chef/artist Jim Denevan.
The Outstanding in the Field 2021 Tour features most of the host farms and guest chefs originally announced in March 2020 before lockdown, with several more venues and chefs added (and a few more in the works). The 2021 tour itinerary currently includes 84 events across the U.S. and four overseas – two U.K. events in London and Devon, and two events for OITF’s first trip to Africa, where they’ll do dinners in South Africa and Ghana. See the full 2021 Outstanding in the Field Tour schedule here.
Other 2021 tour highlights: two dinners in the rolling grasslands of Hearst Ranch (yes, the place with the castle); Community Table street dinners in Galena, IL and Geneva, NY; a Washington orchard in the Columbia River Gorge; urban gardens in Chicago and Detroit, and bucolic farm fields from Massachusetts to Maryland. And of course, OITF’s popular beach dinners on a secluded coastal strand south of San Francisco.
