2014 Asheville Wine & Food FestivalTickets on Sale NOW!

It's official! Given the surge of independent farm-to-table restaurants, underground dinners, award-winning chefs, booming brewery scene, burgeoning craft distilleries and wineries, and the mélange of farmers and artisan food producers, Asheville and Western North Carolina’s food scene has exploded. And it hasn’t gone unnoticed. TripAdvisor placed Asheville right up there with New York City, San Francisco, and New Orleans when it bestowed the city with a Traveler’s Choice Food & Wine Destination Award in 2011; The Huffington Post named Asheville one of the Top 10 Undiscovered Local Food Cities in 2009; and this year, Southern Living listed Asheville among the Tastiest Towns in the South.

Appalachian Food Storybank, a program of Slow Food Asheville, seeks to acknowledge, honor, and archive Appalachian heritage foods and foodways in order to promote the preservation of diverse local knowledges, natural resources, and food biodiversity.The Storybank will be an archive of stories from individuals, families, and communities about southern Appalachian foods – from how they are grown or harvested, to ways of preparing and preserving them, to anecdotes of family or community rituals surrounding food. Our main goal is to provide a way for folks to record their food stories and histories for their children and their grandchildren. In addition, the stories we help collect will be used for educational purposes to highlight the unique lifeways, history, and culture of Appalachia.




When: Thursday, August 21,[masked]:00 PM

Where: US Celluar Center
