Outstanding in the Field returns to Edwards in July
May 25, 2011
AVON – Outstanding in the Field will set its long signature table at Vail Valley’s historic Copper Bar Ranch for the second time on July 20.
The mission of Outstanding in the Field is to re-connect diners to the land and to honor the local farmers who cultivate it. Started in 1999 by California chef Jim Denevan, this roving culinary adventure will visit 90 American farms this summer for a feast featuring local farmers, food artisans, chefs and winemakers. One signature long, linen-draped table is set and all guests sit down together to break bread in rustic, romantic style.
The July 20th Outstanding in the Field will feature a five-course meal prepared in a pasture by two acclaimed Vail Valley chefs – Armando Navarro of Larkspur and Jeremy Kittelson of Restaurant Avondale at The Westin Riverfront. Several local farmers will be on hand to be honored for their contributions to Colorado lamb, beef, produce, cheese and wine, including LaVenture Farms in Gypsum, Copper Bar Ranch in Edwards and James Ranch in Durango.
