Farm-to-Table Restaurant Dr. Field Goods Brings Santa Fe Dishes with Fresh, Local Ingredients

By Kelly Church

Farm-to-table restaurant Dr. Field Goods is a Santa Fe, NM spot for comfort food that people can feel good about. Chef and Owner Josh Gerwin puts his effort into using local, sustainable agriculture as much as possible for his "New Mexico fusion meets the rest of the world" cuisine. The restaurant features a wood fired pizza oven, a rich dessert menu and a mix of different drinks. However, Gerwin makes the focus the fresh, local ingredients.

"Local farms are very important to us," Gerwin says. "All of our meat is sourced locally and processed at my butcher shop. I use as much local produce as possible. We make all of our own bread in my bakery. I spend a lot of time trying to source the best product from New Mexico that I can. Everything we do here is done from scratch. We don't have a microwave or can openers."

Some of the local farms and providers that Dr. Field Goods works with are Old Windmill Dairy, Mi Young Farms, Sungreen Living Foods, B&B Farms, Jemez Valley Live and Buckin' Bee Honey.

Gerwin recommends the Carne Adovada Egg Rolls for newcomers to the restaurant. They're served with a peanut dipping sauce and sweet pickled vegetables as an appetizer. He also suggests the Pizza de Gallo, a wood fired pizza topped with diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapenos, smoked mozzarella and New Mexican gremolata.

Other favorites include the New Mexican sandwich, a mountain of green chile rubbed and smoked pulled pork with sharp cheddar cheese, green chile, apple jicama slaw and Field Good potatoes on the side. Dr. Field Goods has a breakfast item. The Breakfast Burrito combines house-made breakfast sausage with eggs and pinto beans, wrapped in a tortilla and covered in the customer's choice of red or green chile.

On the dessert menu, Gerwin crafts Crème Brulee, which is offered in different flavors depending on the day. Dr. Field Goods also offers a bread pudding with raisins, pinon nuts, fresh caramel and Chantilly cream. The Truffle Plate is the last dessert menu item, offering something a little different. This dessert combines a red chile chocolate truffle rolled in sweet paprika and powdered sugar; a green chile truffle rolled in pepitas and powdered sugar; a milk chocolate truffle with milk chocolate cocoa powder; and a milk chocolate truffle with roasted pinon and salted toffee rolled in sugar.

The drink menu has a variety for whatever the customer may be looking for. Traditional options include hot and iced tea, French press coffee, lemonade and limeade. Dr. Field Goods unique drinks are the housemade cherry lemonade and limeade, cherry vanilla cream soda, fresh ginger ale, funaro soda (fresh squeezed oranges, muddled ginger, simple syrup and soda water), fresh orange soda, orange creamsicle and cucumber mint infused water.

Dr. Field Goods is open seven days a week, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The butcher shop and bakery a few doors down ? also owned by Dr. Field Goods ? is open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday for customers who want to take home their own fresh meats.
