A group of restaurateurs in Asheville have banded together in attempts to bring Guy Fieri, host of the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, to the mountains.
Here's what Tupelo Honey Cafe, one of the sponsors of this initiative, had to say about their invitation to the culinary celeb:
Asheville, NC, has an amazingly creative and talented culinary scene. It’s also diverse with everything from Indian street food to vegan to French to our innovative take on Southern at Tupelo Honey. We also have an incredible community of independent restaurants. The Asheville Independent Restaurant Association has over 60 members, and our Foodtopian Society is proud of our independent streak.
So, all of us at Tupelo thought, “We should shine a light on our food town!” We got together with our friends at Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack, Bouchon and Luella’s (thinking that was a pretty good representation of the diversity of foods in our community) and put a Guy Fieri invitation-to-come-to-Asheville care package together.
Now it’s your turn! If you believe, as we do, that Guy needs to come to Asheville, please post on our FB page, on YOUR FB page and on Guy’s FB page. Re-post and forward this blog. Shout it from the mountaintops, get out your semaphore flags, send out a psychic message.
