You love your friends.
But let's face it: sometimes they drive you nuts.
So this summer, try dining with strangers.
(National) Try an Outstanding in the Field dinner. We'll be at one Monday, at Donkey and Goat winery, loving the behind-the-scenes peek at urban rancher Novella Carpenter's city farm beforehand. Join us at the big table
if you're in the Bay Area—a few tix remain. Or check out the OINF national schedule for suppers near you.
(Charleston, S.C) Guerrilla Cuisine
is Charleston's most original and delicious collaborative dining project. Skeptical? Take a look at photos from a recent dinner.
(Vancouver) The Vegan Secret Supper club awaits you here. So c'mon: Don't you want sunchoke-chive perogies with pear and minted coconut sour cream?
(Washington D.C.) Hush—it really is where supper and storytelling meet.You'll find out
the location just 48 hours before this supper begins. Settle into stories about India while chowing-down on vegetarian home-cooking from Gujarat. Peek into the masala dabba (spice box) and open yourself to a special tasting of raw ingredients. You'll sign up as a stranger and leave feeling like family.
(New York) 45 people + 1 small NYC kitchen = chaos cooking. This NYC culinary experiment asks each participant to bring enough ingredients to create a dish for 20—and cook it up. Interested? Get on the invitation list so you can elbow your way to the stove—or just listen here, to radio journalist and friend-of-ours John Kalish's short NPR segment
about the experience.

Just don't tell your friends.
