The Kitchen | Fields Table Tour program is based on partnerships with the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board and restaurants throughout the state. The tour will feature each restaurant for a three month period to inform consumers that the food industry utilizes soybean oil and meal in a variety of ways. We hope to teach Arkansans that consuming those food products supports Arkansas soybean farmers. For 2015 – 2016, we have partnered with four locally owned restaurants in the Central, Northeast and Northwest regions of the state. Meet our partners:
South On Main, July – September, 2015
J Town's Grill, October – December, 2015
The Hive, January – March, 2016
The Southern Gourmasian, April – June, 2016
Our program will anchor around a featured food item on each restaurant’s menu. The food item will be a soy food or soy-based, like chicken that has consumed a food made of mostly soybean meal. When you order the meal you'll receive an dish card that provides a few soybean facts according to the ingredients of the dish. You'll probably read about the dishes on your favorite foodie websites and publications. If you're lucky, you'll even see one of these fine chefs preparing their signature soybean dish on a television morning show or two.
