  • Outstanding in the Field
Tickets are on sale for Outstanding in the Field's 2013 Tour. As is usually the case, the dates include a preponderance of stops at West Coast farms. In case you don't know much about this travelin' pop-up party, let us illuminate the vibe.

A 60-year-old bus zips around to farms all over the country. At each stop, local chefs of note prepare the farm's products for diner groupies thirsting for a taste of the terroir attached to the meal as well as some hot chef's epic manipulations of the farm's goods: confetti-colored peppers perhaps, or corn as pale and perfect as pearl bunches, fine fresh cheese made, naturally, on the premises, or even farmed abalone.

Turn the page for the upcoming Southern California dates and get that Visa ready.

For early birds:

  • June 6 in Carpinteria, CA: Coleman Family Farm (Chefs: Rachel Main, Main Course California, and Karl Holst, Birnam Wood Golf Club)
  • June 8 in Temecula, CA: Temecula Olive Oil Company (Chef: Paul Arias, The Fishery)

For those who can wait:

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
