Chef Currence will host the traveling culinary event, Outstanding in the Field on October, 3rd at Yokna Bottom Farms. Outstanding in the Field is in its 10th season of farm dinners, and this year has crossed North America for the seventh time.  Their mission is to provide a memorable outdoor dining experience where people can see directly the people and stories behind the food on their plate. The event will take place outside and will include tray passed hors d’oeuvres, a three course family style dinner paired with wines, and dessert.

In an effort to create a true gathering of local chefs, Currence has asked some others to join him.
