farm to table
Raves and rants from veteran dining authority Christiane Lauterbach
The absolute worst part about my otherwise enviable job? Parking.

A few years ago, Field of Greens was a cute little festival where you’d take a drive out into the country, tour a pretty farm, check out a few displays and buy a few vegetables, pet some goats, and head home.
