Outstanding in the Field will set its long signature table at Vail Valley's historic Copper Bar Ranch for the second time on Wednesday, July 20th and Vail Valley's Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain is welcoming farm-to-table aficionados to the popular event with a special Back to Basics package.

The mission of Outstanding in the Field is to re-connect diners to the land and to honor the local farmers who cultivate it. Started in 1999 by California chef Jim Denevan, this roving culinary adventure will visit 90 American farms this summer for a feast featuring local farmers, food artisans, chefs and winemakers. One signature long, linen-draped table is set and all guests sit down together to break bread in rustic, romantic style.

The July 20th Outstanding in the Field will feature a five-course meal prepared in a gorgeous pasture by two acclaimed Vail Valley chefs – Armando Navarro of Larkspur and Jeremy Kittelson of Restaurant Avondale at The Westin Riverfront. Several local farmers will be on hand to be honored for their contributions to Colorado lamb, beef, produce, cheese and wine, including LaVenture Farms in Gypsum, Copper Bar Ranch in Edwards and James Ranch in Durango.

To help entice foodies to visit the Vail Valley, The Westin Riverfront is offering a special Back to Basics package, which starts at $399 per night and includes:

• Two tickets to Outstanding in the Field at Copper Bar Ranch on July 20
• Transportation to/from the event
• Two fitness classes at the Riverfront Club, which offers daily yoga, Pilates and more
• A fly fishing clinic with Gore Creek Flyfisherman on the Eagle River
• Continental breakfast delivered to your room on the first morning of your stay, including gourmet pastries, jam and coffee
• Valet parking

Located on the banks of the Eagle River, the AAA Four Diamond Westin Riverfront features 230 finely appointed guest residences ranging from studio suites to three-bedroom condominiums, all featuring custom kitchens, five-piece bathrooms and gas fireplaces. Colorado's first Silver LEED hotel, The Westin Riverfront was named the #1 resort in the U.S. for 2010 by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler.

The resort features an on-site fly fishing shop, a Westin Kids Club, the Riverfront Club fitness center, an outdoor pool, three riverside hot tubs and Restaurant Avondale by acclaimed chef/owner Thomas Salamunovich. Spa Anjali – which was just ranked the #2 spa in the U.S. by Condé Nast Traveler - offers a full menu of treatment options focusing on healing mountain traditions.
