Chow Chow's mission is to celebrate and enrich the unique foodways of the Southern Appalachian region. Chow Chow: An Asheville Culinary Event Series returns in the summer of 2022 with three weekends of culinary events, and a focus on honoring community and exploring what it means to celebrate justly. As makers, chefs, artists, farmers and business owners, our vision is an equitable and thriving regional food system, where culinary and creative enterprise are central to community identity and resilience. We welcome the collective sum of differences, life experiences, knowledge, self-expression, and talent our makers and guests bring to Chow Chow, and we look forward to celebrating and gathering together around the table.
The Southern Appalachian Mountains are the oldest and most bio-diverse mountains in the world, offering endless natural beauty perfect for exploring the outdoors. Humans have been gathering around campfires since time immemorial, sharing food, stories and cultural traditions. But perceptions of engaging with the Great Outdoors have not always felt inclusive of all people. This event will spotlight chefs creating campfire food that represents multiple cultures and highlights current ongoing efforts to ensure Mother Nature is welcoming to everyone.
