Farmstead’s ‘Société-Orignal’ Dinner to Benefit Hurricane Victims

Rhode Island culinary power couple Matt and Kate Jennings, proprietors of Farmstead, Inc., (and featured in today's New York Times) are combining a unique gastronomic event with a very worthy cause--hurricane relief.

The result: a five-course dinner on Sunday, November 18th, featuring a collaboration with Société-Orignal, a unique Canadian food purveyor.

Farmstead has developed this partnership over the last year, and the dinner features the coming out party of sorts. The event kicks off with a 6pm cocktail reception, before guests dive into a multi-course family style menu featuring wonderful small batch products "from the hard-working folks in the Boreal regions of Canada," according to Jennings.

Farmstead provided the following preview of the menu:

  • Course One: Rhode Island Oysters, Lumpfish Roe, Sea Urchin & White Bean Crostino

  • Course Two: Spiced Chicharrones Salad, Seashore Honey Roasted Vegetables, Goat Cheese & Boudin Lahmachun with Piment

  • Course Three: Foraged Mushrooms and Lamb Belly Cooked in Camelina, Kale, Grated Pecorino and Meyer Lemon

  • Course Four: Boreal Tea Smoked Chicken, Wild Mustard and Balsam Fern Braised Escarole with Snails, Carrots & Caraway

  • Dessert: Dark Chocolate, Persimmon and Arctic Rose Tart with 70 Brix Maple Ice Cream

If that isn't tempting enough, keep in mind, that part of the $100 per person ticket (which includes pairings) goes to Save The Children's Hurricane Relief Fund, for those hit by Hurricane Sandy. To reserve a post, call (401) 274-7177. Get more details, here.

Société-Orignal Dinner, Sunday, November 18, 6pm, Farmstead, Inc., 186 Wayland Ave, Providence.
