Appalachian Ramps & Preserves - A Fundraiser For The Appalachian Food Summit, Asheville, NC
April 15. 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Market Place, 20 Wall Street. The Appalachian Food Summit is an upcoming gathering on September 26th that is bringing together the best food and heritage minds of Appalachia to discuss the past, present, and future of our Appalachian Foodways. Chefs Dissen and Milton will be raiding their restaurant larders with preserves, pickles, ferments, and canned veggies from the last year to help build their menu, as well as utilizing the first wild food of the year - RAMPS.
There is an old Appalachian saying, Tax Day is Ramp Day, and it's a special time of year as the wild Allium Tricoccum is in full harvest in our hills and mountains. Please join us for a 5 Course Appalachian dinner. Tickets: $55/person plus tax and gratuity. Reservations: Call The Market Place, 828-252-4162.
