Outstanding in the Field

Outstanding in the Field

This epic culinary event not only brings the farm to your table, it literally brings your table to the farm…or vineyard, beach, riverside, and any other picturesque spot the traveling caterers can find to host an unforgettable dining experience. An average of 130-200 guests dine together at each event and are served by both the traveling chefs as well as guest chefs handpicked from each destination.

Jeff and Janet appreciate the idea of a large feast set in the middle of some of the most beautiful scenery around the world, and have lent their culinary expertise to this event several times now. This June Jeff is the guest chef at Beckmen Vineyards in Los Olivos. If it’s a windy day and/or it’s on the hot side, they will take the table to a cool sheltered canyon. If weather conditions are just right, still and sunny, they will put the table high up on the hill for an astounding view. Either way, count on great views as part of the farm tour. Last fall the crew from Industrial Eats came out to cook alongside the vines of Ampelos Cellars. This year they are not so far down the road at the Beckmen property and have exciting new specialties planned for the menu:
