Tickets for the food-porn event of the summer – at least in terms of Missouri – went on sale this morning. I got two of ’em, and only had to sell one of the kids to get them. Seriously, they’re not cheap. But it’s going to be so, so worth it. The details:
Outstanding in the Field
Powell Gardens in Kingsville, MO
Wednesday, July 29
Host Farmer: Eric Tschanz and Alan Branhagen, Powell Gardens
Guest Chef: Jonathan Justus, Justus Drugstore, Kansas City
Time: 4:00 pm
Get tickets here.
Chef Jonathan Justus of Justus Drugstore makes sure to get the good stuff. As an excellent recent New York Times Magazine article states “25 local suppliers are listed on the back of the menu”. No we are not visiting all 25, but a number of Jonathan’s suppliers will surely have seats at the table. Outstanding in the field is always pleased to go further afield and find new and interesting places to set the table. Our Kansas City farm dinner site, Powell Gardens, contacted us recently excited about the possibility of hosting an Outstanding event. This summer Powell Gardens is debuting a brand new “Heartland Harvest Garden” whose 12 lush acres has been called the nations largest edible landscape. We will celebrate green growing things and Kansas City area farmers at our table set in the field.
Outstanding in the Field events feature a leisurely tour of the hosting farm followed by a five course, farm-style dinner at our long table set in a scenic spot. Dinner is accompanied by a wine paired with each course. Diners are joined at the table by the farmer, food producers, a winemaker and other local artisans associated with the meal.
