RICHMOND, Va. — After hosting Dinner in the Field at Victory Farms in eastern Henrico for two years, the husband and wife culinary team of Paige Healy and Gregorio Spinzo decided to move on to — other — pastures.

“Dinner in the Field started out as an experiment, but the series was destined to grow,” Paige Healy said. “What began as a nostalgic recreation of the magic of al fresco dining I enjoyed in the gardens and fields of Italy, has since become a collaborative story told by the food, the land, and our guests. I’m excited to begin the next chapter.”

The five or six-course meals, which run $150 per person, feature local, fresh ingredients.

The 2016 Dinner in the Field schedule features venues across Central Virginia and even overseas.
