One of Asheville's largest culinary celebrations returns! The Asheville Wine and Food Festival, rated by the New York Post as one of the best of its kind, runs from August 23-25 and is taking place in downtown at the U.S. Cellular Center.
There are a number of different events planned throughout the three days including:
- Chef's Challenge (the finals) - Top chefs across Western North Carolina have been battling it out for the 2012 crown. Four chefs remain and the winner will be announced at the festival. Learn more about the chef's challenge.
- SWEET - prepare for the delicious decadence of luscious desserts and confections, sparkling and dessert wines, and specialty cocktails and spirits.
- The Grand Tasting - Featuring a smorgasbord offering more than 300 wines, creations prepared by some of Asheville’s most celebrated and internationally recognized chefs, and samples of local artisan food products such as Lusty Monk Mustard and Imladris Farm jams, the affair promises to be the largest gathering of its kind that Asheville has ever seen under one roof.
