Let’s start with dessert!

Let’s creep it real: we wouldn’t dare let a holiday premised on sugary treats pass without marking the occasion with our own dessert-focused dining series! Mark your calendars for the final 2017 installment of our new Sucrée series, Sucrée: A Spooky Celebration of Sweets!

On Sunday, October 29th, don your finest costume attire and join the guys and ghouls of Gracie’s for a cocktail hour and four-course dessert tasting inspired by the colors, candies, and other devilishly delicious aspects of Halloween!

Trick or treat yo’self to decadent savory and sweet courses from three of Rhode Island’s most spooktacular pastry chefs: Lori Kettelle of PVDonuts, Jennifer Luxmoore of Sin, our own Executive Pastry Chef Melissa Denmark of GraciesProv and Ellie’s Bakery along with Ellie’s Assistant Pastry Chef, Caitlin Mcguire. The entire evening’s cocktail pairings will be designed by Gracie’s Lead Bartender, Sam Royds.

The evening will begin with a standing cocktail hour and passed hors d’œuvres followed by seated signature dessert courses from each chef, paired with cocktails. The event will run from 7:30–10:00pm and tickets are $80.00 per person, including tax and gratuity. Costumes encouraged.

See you there, pumpkin?

Lori Kettelle of PVDonuts


I am the Owner and Head Baker here at PVDonuts! I started on this journey a couple of years back – I did a ton of R&D to find the right recipes, which I can’t wait for you to try!
When I’m not making donuts, I can most likely be found taking a nap (bakers hours, c’mon), at a nursery looking for new plants (more often than not, Brigg’s in N. Attleboro), or reading crazy Game of Thrones fan theories (thoughts on Jon Snow? I’d be happy to debate). If I were a donut, I’d be a brown butter pecan PVDonut.
I’m so thankful for everyone’s support so far and I’m beyond excited for PVDonuts to open so I can finally meet everyone and be the first to start feeding the city of Providence some darn specialty donuts!  PVDonuts

Melissa Denmark of Gracie’s and Ellie’s Bakery

Chef Denmark grew up in Columbia, Maryland, with a cookbook in one hand, and a whisk in the other. Her love of baking led her to Johnson & Wales University, where she graduated summa cum laude in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in baking and pastry arts. That same year, Denmark assumed the role of Executive Pastry Chef at Gracie’s, and in 2012, developed the bread and pastry program at Ellie’s Bakery.

Chef Denmark draws her inspiration from travel, childhood memories, and unusual ingredients to create savory-sweet, unique desserts. She was named as one of the 50 best new pastry chefs in the country by Food & Wine magazine in 2012, and in 2014 was named a Rising Star in Coastal New England by the culinary magazine, Starchefs.  GraciesProv & Ellie’s Bakery

Caitlyn attended Johnson & Wales University in Providence and received her bachelors in Pastry Arts. She completed her internship at Gracie’s, where Caitlyn fell in love with the company and the team fell in love with her drive. After her internship, she was offered the position of Assistant Pastry Chef position at Ellie’s and ultimately, Pastry Chef.
