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.
Explore with us the legacy of Malinda Russell, the first known Black woman cookbook author in the country and a native of east Tennessee. She self-published A Domestic Cookbook: Containing a Careful Selection of Useful Receipts in 1866, soon after the Civil War. Join internationally renowned and award winning culinary leaders — Ronni Lundy, Toni Tipton-Martin, Dr. Leni Sorensen, Ashleigh Shanti and Dr. Cynthia Greenlee — as they discuss Lundy and Tipton-Martin’s quest to flesh out the life story of this culinary pioneer about whom little is known. Guests will enjoy a curated dinner inspired by the historic recipes.
