SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2019 at 6:30PM:  AN AUTUMN GAME DINNER


 The tradition of hunting and fishing in America has been with us since the founding of the country, when fish and game formed a crucial part of the food that kept the colonies alive.  From the time when Alfred Augustus Reed, Jr. served on the first Rhode Island Commission of Inland Fisheries in the late 1800s, to the Clouds Hill gamekeeper raising pheasants and chukkar partridge for stocking on the estate and elsewhere during the first half of the twentieth century, and the 4th generation owner’s service as a Rhode Island game warden from the 1970s to 1993, the family has been actively involved in fishing and hunting.  If you have always wanted to try game dishes – or are already a fan of them – this dinner presents game as you have never imagined it could taste!


Maximum Guests: 20            $150 per Person
