Outstanding in the Field, a self-described "restaurant without walls," made the East End Community Organic Farm in East Hampton the latest stop on its 2013 "roving culinary adventure," with a dinner on Sept. 10 prepared by the guest chef Jason Weiner of Almond in Bridgehampton.
The venture makes stops at farms, gardens, ranches, and other outdoor locales around the country, offering meals using locally sourced ingredients and donating a portion of proceeds to various food and farm-related nonprofits.
Leah Scafe, the director of Outstanding in the Field, and Jim Denevan, its founder, talked to dinner guests about their mission. Durell Godfrey
