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.
Savor it all! From August 4-7, enjoy all 7 Chow Chow Weekend 2 events: 2 Flights & Bites tasting events - Around the Campfire and Nourishing Community; Handmade Tamale Workshop; Cooking with Scraps Seminar; Sowing Seeds of Equity seated dinner; Corn: A Cross-Cultural Celebration seated brunch; and the Sunday Supper Series: Shelter community meal.
