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.
No single ingredient migrates across multiple cultures and time periods more than corn. The humble maize is transformed into hundreds of different cuisines but also makes appearances in the form of hundreds of everyday products and consumables, from popcorn to bourbon to biofuel. Speakers and Chefs will engage in conversation with each course to celebrate the diversity of corn in its many cultural forms on the table and honor the sacred vegetable’s important role in feeding people and animals around the world for thousands of years.
