An evening of eating elevated local fare in the field at Wilson Farm.
A picture is worth 1,000 words and, sometimes, 1,000 calories. So feast your eyes on these images from Wilson Farm's first Dinner in the Field of the season, held Thursday, June 28. In his first Dinner in the Field at the farm, Chef Jeff Peters prepared a mouth-watering menu with interesting amuse-bouche using fresh, local ingredients and Busa Wine and Spirits paired wines with the different courses. Proceeds from the dinner are donated to Pan Mass Challenge and will benefit cancer research through Dana-Farber. Click through the above images for a look at each course and the settings. If some of them look a little funky or familiar, it's because I Instagrammed them out during dinner on Thursday.
