Outstanding in the Field UBC Farm & Pemberton

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Outstanding in the Field is returning to BC this year with events at UBC Farm and in Pemberton. This international dining series hosts a long table dinner in the middle of land that is used to supply ingredients for the meal, making for a truly farm-to-fork experience.

Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure – literally a restaurant without walls. Since 1999 we have set the long table at farms or gardens, on mountain tops or in sea caves, on islands or at ranches. Occasionally the table is set indoors: a beautiful refurbished barn, a cool greenhouse or a stately museum. Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table.

Ingredients used for the meals will always vary, depending on the location of the event, and the dinners are prepared by local chefs at each destination. Farmers, producers, culinary artisans, and diners all share the long table for a magical evening of food appreciation.

The Outstanding in the Field tour will make it to everywhere from Queens to Houston, Catalina Island to Chicago from May to November. Here’s what will be happening when they get to BC:
