As a melon-ball moon rose above Sweet Valley Organics in Sweet, and a string of Christmas lights flickered on over the heads of local food lovers seated at a long table stretched across the farm's grassy field, it became apparent something magical was in the making. The 14-year-old "roving culinary adventure" known as Outstanding in the Field made its first ever stop in Idaho in late July, drawing out foodies from as near as Boise and as far as New York City for a multi-course meal prepared alfresco by Della Mano's Taite Pearson and Sarah Lipton. From the delicately crafted pastas utilizing local, seasonal ingredients to the endless pours of local wine, Outstanding in the Field made a number of new fans that night. outstandinginthefield.com, sweetvalleyorganics.com.
