We’ve got something all-new and exciting for this year’s Festival. The Rhody Women’s Feast is a dining experience prepared by some of Rhode Island’s most talented female chefs—Jennifer Backman of The Mooring Seafood Kitchen & Bar, Shylicia “Shy” Heyward, Andrea LaFazia of The Locals, Rebecca Lentrichia of Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel, Maria Meza of El Rancho Grande, Gina Pezza of Vanda and Lizzie Fink of Bread Box Baking Company—for a multi-course dining event.
For this Festival event we’re taking over the brand new Revival Foodworks & Brewery in Cranston, and spirits are being provided by two women-owned distilleries: Boston Harbor Distillery and Pomp & Whimsy Gin Liqueur. Meats will be supplied by Ann Marie Bouthillette of Blackbird Farm in Smithfield, RI. In addition, proceeds from the Rhody Women’s Feast will benefit the Women’s Fund of Rhode Island who’s mission is to invest in women and girls through research, advocacy, grant making and strategic partnerships designed to advance gender equity through systemic change.
Rhody Women’s Feast tickets are $140 and are all-inclusive. The evening will begin with a 6 p.m. cocktail reception with passed hors d’oeuvres, then moving into a multi-course dinner with pairings and more.
Due to the limitations of the venue we are regrettably unable to accommodate any alternative menu/allergen requests other than a vegetarian option. Thank you in advance for your understanding on this matter.
