Consistently voted one of the top ten places in the world to live, Asheville boasts more than 140 specialty restaurants, myriad farmers' markets, and a burgeoning art scene to rival any in New York or Paris, without the traffic challenges. At 3000 feet, surrounded by the spectacular Blue Ridge, it is cool in summer, wonderful in winter, and at all times an amazing place to visit.
In an intensive week with multiple top chefs and experts, you will navigate all the essential ingredients of culinary expertise at a fraction of the price required to attend a 2-year culinary institute.
Our theme for our upcoming July 2013 session (July 14-20) will be Appalachian Innovation. For a glance at the schedule, see here.
