The view from here


We've succeeded in bringing our tables to spectacular locations. It can be said we have not taken the easy road. The effort has been heroic and with strength and fortitude, the crew of Outstanding in the Field has realized a moving celebration of both people and place.

Farmers, fisherpeople, cheesemakers, winemakers, ranchers, plate-makers and breakers... We can see them all from the middle of the long table, placed just so. From coast to coast, mountain to rooftop, sea cave to pier, in the valley, in the city, trekking the wilderness or looking down from a spectacular vantage, we always feel close to the people of the land, the guests at the table, and the meaning of what we do, because our heart is in the work.
