Outstanding in the Field 2012



Alfaro Rose of Pinot Noir


On March 20, the first day of Spring, tickets for the 2012 Outstanding in the Field dinners went on sale. I’ve talked about these events a few times in the past and I continue to recommend them as a great experience and adventure.  It’s a wonderful way to learn a little something about the people who produce your food, see a farm, enjoy delicious food and wine, meet the chef and winemaker and dine with others who appreciate the camaraderie a wonderful dinner brings to the table.

Several of the more popular events have already sold out but there are still plenty of events remaining. You can see the full schedule and purchase tickets here.

If you’d like to see photos of past events you can check out six sets of my dinner photos here, each from a different dinner from the past few seasons.

    Attended the Vashon event. The flavors and setting were fantastic. I have to say that my lasting impression is how small the portions were. Given the cost per person, it was very poor value.

    Hi Scott,
    I can understand that if you look only at the meal served you might feel that way. I look at these meals as an event, not just as dinner. On Vashon we had about 5 hours of entertainment, including the food and wine. The dinners are about education and the opportunity to experience something out of the ordinary, but I understand that not everyone places value on that.

    I would have liked to see a little more substance during the passed appetizers and the dessert course but for all the others my table had enough at each course for a second round for those who wanted.
