On Friday, November 13th at 6 p.m. at Horseshoe Farm in Westerly, Dinner by Dames returns for the fourth installment of the wildly successful dinner series. Dinner by Dames brings together some of Rhode Island’s most talented chefs for a multi-course dining event. Chefs Melissa Denmark of Gracie’s and Ellie’s Bakery, Jordan Goldsmith of Scratch Farm, Maria Meza of El Rancho Grande, Kaitlyn Roberts & Danielle Varga of Easy Entertaining Inc., Jessica Wood of Fire and Water Restaurant Group, and special guest Sonya Coté of Eden East, The Homegrown Revival and Hillside Farmacy (Austin, TX) gather together to prepare Rhode Island harvest dishes.

Creating the cocktail pairings for each course will be a team of Rhode Island’s best bartenders led by Jennifer Davis of The Eddy and including Kayleigh Speck of The Grange, Elizabeth Sawtelle of Nicks on Broadway, Caitlin Murphy of The Dorrance, and Katie Masterson of The Boombox at The Dean Hotel.

Proceeds from this exclusive experience will benefit Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island, the second oldest hospice in the nation and the largest and most experienced hospice agency in the state. “We have always been amazed by the comfort and sense of compassion the locavore community brings to countless friends and families of Rhode Island. It is only natural for our partnership to exist, as HHCRI works to bring comfort and compassion to our patients and their loved ones when time matters most. We feel honored to be a part of Dinner by Dames Four,” said Charles P. Iacono, Vice President of Philanthropy & Community Relations at HHCRI.
