Farmstead, a restaurant in Providence's East Side in Wayland Square, is teaming up Sunday with the crew from Société-Orignal at 6 p.m. for its first-ever event in the U.S., a five-course, family-style meal, crafted by Farmstead's Chef Matthew Jennings. It features a selection of Société-Orignal's small-batch artisanal products. Fifty percent of the $100 ticket price benefits the Save the Children's Hurricane Relief Fund for those effected by Hurricane Sandy.

Courses include Rhode Island oysters, lumpfish roe, sea urchin, spiced chicharrones salad, seashore honey-roasted veggies, foraged mushrooms, lamb belly, tea-smoked chicken, and dark chocolate, persimmon and arctic rose tart with maple ice cream.

According to its website, the Quebec-based Société-Orignal is a creative platform linking farmers, activists, chefs and grocers. Check it out at www.societe-orignal.com
