Outstanding in the Field

I am loving these pictures from Outstanding in the Field (via Oh Happy Day):

Aren't they just amazing?

It turns out Outstanding in the Field is a traveling restaurant that foeatures long tables and local ingredients. Here's what they had to say about themselves on their website:

Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure - literally a restaurant without walls. Since 1999 we have set the long table at farms or gardens, on mountain tops or in sea caves, on islands or at ranches. Occasionally the table is set indoors: a beautiful refurbished barn, a cool greenhouse or a stately museum. Wherever the location, the consistent theme of each dinner is to honor the people whose good work brings nourishment to the table.

Ingredients for the meal are almost all local (sometimes sourced within inches of your seat at the table!) and generally prepared by a celebrated chef of the region. After a tour of the site, we all settle in: farmers, producers, culinary artisans, and diners sharing the long table.

Is it just me or does that sound awesome? I'd like to have my own dinner party out in a forest or field some day (if only for the pictures).

You can visit their website here.
