Outstanding in the Field is a traveling theatrical dinner event where people sit at one long table in the middle of a field. Founder Jim Denevan matches a local farmer and chef to create a unique open-air dining experience for up to 200 guests.  In the past sixteen years, since he started the event, they have been to all fifty states and many countries around the world, including Japan and Australia. 

This was the third year that the Berkshires dinner was held at Lila Berle's farm in Great Barrington. Last year, the skies opened up and presented a dramatic downpour of rain. This year's event was all sunshine, but many of the players remained the same, including chef Brian Alberg of The Red Lion Inn and Eat on North.
