Hundred North, a fine dining restaurant in Bellingham, and Atwood Ales of Blaine, Washington are partnering to host two very special field dinners on August 10th and 11th. The dinners take place on the farm where Atwood Ales brews its beers.
According to a press release from Atwood Ales, “Field dinners were conceived to bring diners away from restaurants and to integrate them into the locations where their food is grown: one part art installation, one part dining affair, field dinners are performed on farms all over the world featuring local ingredients and guest chefs.”
This event emulates the kind of dinners created by Jim Denevan, who is the founder of Outstanding in the Field, an organization that seeks to connect people to the farmers who grow our food and the land from which it comes. Jim is kind of a big deal in the world of field dinners; Atwood Ales and Hundred North do not claim any affiliation with him or his organization and are simply creating a field dinner in that style.
“Ovens will be built on site, produce and meat acquired from nearby farms and Atwood’s own fields, and the staff of Hundred North will serve groups of 50 people per night,” said the press release. “Atwood Ales brewers, Josh and Monica Smith, will select five of their farmhouse beers to pair with ten courses prepared by Hundred North Chef Todd Alan Martin.”
The dates are August 10th and 11th.
The location is at the Atwood family farm where the beers are brewed.
Tickets are $125 per person and include:
- Transportation to and from an as-of-yet-determined parking lot in Blaine to the farm,
- A starting cocktail
- Five beers
- A ten-course meal
