The culinary experiences will be held at Horseshoe Farm, a private estate surrounded by miles of fences along the coastal countryside in Westerly, RI.

Coté brings her acclaimed bold Texas flavors easterly, merging with Kleyla’s passion for showcasing the bounty of summer in New England—locally landed seafood, beef & pork from Blackbird Farm, and the best ingredients from Rhode Island farmers and purveyors, such as Moonrose Farm and Four Town Farm. Dinner will be paired with seasonal cocktails, including Texas-based Deep Eddy Vodka.
