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.
Tamales are a universal celebration of one of the earliest forms of convenience foods, dating back to Mesoamerica as early as 5000 BC. Nixtamilized corn is the key to great masa and different cultures steam the dough (along with fillings ranging from, cheeses, herbs, meats, chiles and vegetables) in different wraps – from corn husks to banana leaves. Learn about traditional tamale making from an expert in this intimate workshop setting.
