What I Ate: Outstanding in the Field at Peeler Farms

by

To quote Clueless, " She could be a farmer in those clothes." I don't own a single pair of boots (I know, right?!), but I somehow found myself at Peeler Farms for the second time in a week and third time this year (read about their humane chicken-raising practices here), this time for SA's first Outstanding in the Field dinner with chef Steve McHugh. McHugh always seems to nail the rustic-meets delicious nail on the head, and this dinner was no different. The rest of the week included plenty o' beer at SA Beer Festival, a bowl of Count Chocula and way too much coffee. Follow me on Instagram for more food porn, will ya: @JessElizarraras.
