Since 1999, Jim Denevan’s organization, Outstanding in the Field, has hosted open-to-the-public ticketed dinners in all 50 states and 15 different countries. Not content with farm-to-table, Denevan actually brings the table to the farm, inviting chefs and farmers to work together to produce a meal that tells a story about its creators and about the place where the food is grown. They set up long tables for dozens, or hundreds, of guests in exotic locations and farmlands.
They only sponsor a few dozen events each year and they sell out rather quickly. At about $300 per seat, the price is as hot as the seats.
