The craggy peaks of southern Appalachia, revered as the world’s oldest mountains, surround Asheville. Rich in biodiversity, these woods create fertile growing conditions for some 300 wild edibles—and set a bountiful tableau for chefs and food lovers. Grab a basket and head out on a guided foraging tour with professional foragers, chefs, and beverage professionals through old-growth forest. Gather seasonal delicacies, from wild mushrooms to sumac and sassafras, alongside local experts. Then take your harvest into the kitchen, collaborate with the professionals, and enjoy a sophisticated meal featuring ingredients plucked fresh from the forest floor.
