Our stellar week in Asheville (August 6-12, 2017) will involve, as always, the top chefs of Western North Carolina, coupled with renowned wine experts, and a surrounding that is pastoral, flanked by blue mountains, and reeling with music and dance as a backdrop. Our theme for 2017 will revolve around the culinary revolution inspired by Appalachian authors.

Each day centers around a 3-hour class with master chefs, a gourmet lunch, and a wine tasting afternoon/evening session. The music in the background will be Appalachian arias, as the Swannanoa Gathering's Traditional Song Week enhances the colors on our plates. Culinary students are welcome to join in evening festivities which last often until dawn breaks over the hill.
