Outstanding in the Field


Our mission is to re-connect diners to the land and the origins of their food, and to honor the local farmers and food artisans who cultivate it. Outstanding in the Field is a roving culinary adventure. Join us on February 3. 

  • Host Farmer: Erich Schultz, Steadfast Farm, Queen Creek, AZ (Phoenix)
  • Guest Chef: Gio Osso, Virtù, Scottsdale, AZ
  • Cost: $205 per person.  Purchase tickets here.

Erich Schultz is one of those farmers you can’t help but want to learn from. He has taught us about fruits and vegetables; soil and compost; the chicken and the egg. He has also introduced us to many of Phoenix’s top chefs who use his incredible produce in their restaurants. This year, Gio Osso of Virtù will be back in the OITF kitchen with his big smile and even bigger Mediterranean flavors.
