The Dinner in the Field is a fundraising event for Slow Food Baton Rouge as well as a showcase of the culinary arts, local farms and food traditions. The dinner will feature locally grown foods selected and prepared by area chefs. A cocktail hour will begin at 4 with live music, cocktails, wine and small plates provided by Country Table and Red Stick Spice. The six-course dinner will begin at 5 pm featuring local ingredients sourced and provided by IndiePlate. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets in advance. Early bird tickets are available until April 1st. A chefs table (8 persons) with more intimate seating, wine pairings and interaction with the chefs is also available.
A free local farms tour is also available and will be open to the public beginning at noon. The final stop on the tour will be Oakland Plantation where dinner guests can enjoy cocktails before dinner as well as those who have purchased cocktail hour tickets.
The Dinner in the Field is a benefit with proceeds dedicated entirely to Baton Rouge's only comprehensive farm to school pilot program Greauxing Healthy Baton Rouge (GHBR). GHBR pilot programming is currently in Dufrocq and FLAIM elementary schools in Baton Rouge.
