Last year, photographer Lindsay Borden and I had the opportunity to do a photo essay (this one) on an Outstanding in the Field dinner that took place at Full Circle Farm in Carnation.
Cooking that night was Elemental chef Laurie Riedeman. Her food was fantastic and everyone made tons of friends while picking berries off bushes, sipping Washington wine, and just sort of basking in the quintessential Northwest summerness of it all.
This year, the roving outdoor dinner company comes back to Full Circle on July 6. Emmer and Rye’s Seth Caswell will be cooking. Tickets are $180 (wine pairings included) and the events starts at 4—there’s a little party in the garden and a farm tour before dinner.
On July 7, Outstanding will head over to Dog Mountain Farm, also in Carnation. The chef that night will be Dan Gilmore from Urbane. Tickets are, once again, $180, and it also starts at 4pm.
Note from mom: if the weather is favorable, please bring sunscreen or a big floppy hat. You’ll be spending a lot of hours in direct sunlight.
