Thank you all of our chef and farmer participants, silent auction donors, event sponsor Katie Button Restaurants, host New Belgium Brewing Co., and everyone who attended the 2019 Local Food Experience on Aug. 15. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Eating local is about more than just food.
It’s about knowing the farmer, celebrating a connection to place and heritage, and the sense of community that comes from knowing firsthand where and how your food was produced.
It’s about the relationships.
ASAP’s Local Food Experience will inspire you with the beauty and flavor of food grown and raised in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, and connect you with the farmers, chefs, and artisans working together to build our local food movement.
Experience our local food movement.
Treat yourself to a fun and delicious evening celebrating where our food comes from. Meet local chefs, artisans, and farmers while sampling small plates highlighting seasonal foods grown and raised in the Southern Appalachians. Cast bids in a silent auction to win private farm-to-table dinners, farm tours, workshops, farm stays, and other fabulous local food experiences. Enjoy connecting with your local food community at the beautiful New Belgium Brewing Co. Brewhouse overlooking the French Broad River.
All proceeds from the event benefit ASAP’s programs to help local farms thrive and build healthy communities through connections to local food.
