Not only can metro Detroiters look forward to Detroit Farm and Cider’s reopening this month, but on Aug. 17, you’ll have the opportunity to break bread at the mill with owner Leandra King, Marrow Executive Chef Sarah Welch, and organizers of the traveling food tour Outstanding in the Field. 

The wildly popular pop-up dinner series traverses from coast to coast, hosting events at farms, vineyards, and beaches across the country and beyond. Outstanding in the Field has even crossed international waters to feast in 16 countries around the globe. Wherever the pop-up goes, a communal table is beautifully designed for guests to enjoy meals made by renowned culinary artisans. Dinners also offer a lesson in the origins of the dishes plated by the chefs, farmers, brewers, and other culinarians who make them. 

When Outstanding in the Field stops at Detroit Farm and Cider this month, King will serve as host farmer as Welch prepares the dishes of the evening. Guests will enjoy a welcoming reception with appetizers, a tour of the farm, and a four-course dinner with wine pairings.

$285+ while tickets last. Aug. 17. Detroit Farm and Cider, 1600 Lawrence St., Detroit; outstandinginthefield.com
