On Wednesday, November 14th, 2012, the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association (AIR) will host its annual Taste of Asheville at The Venue downtown. The event is a celebration of the international cuisine that has made Asheville a foodie destination, known for culinary diversity and multi-talented chefs.
Two Hours of Tasting Heaven
Where can you sample the cuisine of France, India, Italy, Israel, Nepal, and Mexico all in one place? Where can you try top-notch barbeque alongside award-winning vegetarian fare? From 7 to 9 p.m., Taste of Asheville features small plate tastings of over 40 local, independent restaurants that each host a serving station.
Participants include delicious fare ranging from the Southern food of Tupelo Honey Café and Homegrown to the sweet treat creations from Ultimate Ice Cream and the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. Wine will be served, as well as beer samples from local microbrews such as Lexington Avenue Brewery and Jack of the Wood.
Eating for a Good Cause
Taste of Asheville is an awesome opportunity to eat your way to community support. This annual fundraising event donates a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to benefit outreach efforts, such as Chefs of Tomorrow Scholarships. The scholarships are offered by AIR and the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project to support culinary students at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College.
Extend the Experience with a Passport
AIR’s 2013 Taste of Asheville Passport will be available for purchase at the event, and can also be purchased through the AIR website. For just $50, you can save over $1000! The Passport is a coupon booklet that offers significant savings at participating restaurants, which include all of the restaurants at the event. The AIR Passport also gives you the unique opportunity to experience the best restaurants in Asheville while supporting a worthy organization.
