Pachamama's executive chef and owner Ken Baker is preparing the menu for a four-course en plein air dinner next month on a Kansas farm.

The fourth-generation River Creek Farm, about nine miles east of Manhattan, will host its annual Feast of the Fields event June 8 in a growing cornfield. The event aims to promote awareness of agriculture by serving meats, produce and wines from the Flint Hills region in a natural setting. 

The cost is $100 per person. Event organizers say any proceeds will be reinvested into educational agrotourism programs and to assist local culinary students.
