Outstanding in the Field
Longman & Eagle was thrilled to take part in Outstanding in the Field, a “roving culinary adventure,” which invites chefs and restaurants around the country to prepare locally sourced meals for guests in beautiful settings. This year’s dinner was Longman’s fifth event with the organization, and it took place at Chicago’s City Farms. Chef Jared, Chef Matt, and Chef Jeremy were all on hand for the dinner, and together they created a five-course menu for 120 guests (a sell-out crowd!) – including Slagel Family Farms Veal Pave, Klug Farms Stonefruit-Basil Salad, Beef Rinds, Sunchoke Puree, and Heirloom Antebellum Sweet Corn Honey Cake, with Honey Compressed Peaches, Sweetcorn-Old Style Pudding, and Bourbon-Fig Jelly. Bar manager Phil Olson served Longman & Eagle’s Negroni di Aquila cocktail to guests, and coursed wine pairings were selected by GM Jeffrey Wilson & Tom Everz from Robert Houde wines.
It was a beautiful night with good company – and we can’t wait to do it again next year.
