Rise and Dine
In an age of farm-to-table cuisine, Chris Fischer had a different idea: Why not bring the table to the farm? After years spent cooking in top restaurant kitchens (New York Cityâ€™s Babbo, Londonâ€™s River Cafe), he now grows vegetables on his familyâ€™s Marthaâ€™s Vineyard farm, Beetlebung, and -- when the crops come in -- hosts elegantly rustic dinners in the greenhouse. Guests range from family (Fischer is a 12th-generation Vineyarder) to strangers (he sometimes takes reservations), but the food is always just picked and simply prepared.
