Appalachian Pride Brunch

Sunday, June 26, 2022, 11:30AM-2:00PM

Smoky Park Supper Club - 350 Riverside Dr, Asheville, NC

$125 per person

This is a Seated Brunch, with a cocktail hour followed by a four course meal with paired beverages, featuring 6 chefs and several craft beverage makers.

Menu sneak peek! These talented chefs are cooking up an exciting selection of dishes! Menu options being discussed are: sorbet float cocktails; shrimp & pork wontons in Sichuan miso broth with caviar, black vinegar and scallions; chicken fried cauliflower with creole cauliflower mousseline, potlikker purple cow peas, honey fermented peppers & crispy collard strings; Cantonese BBQ chicken, lo bak go (turnip cake) with shitake, tamari pickled cucumber salad & togarashi; zucchini poona pancake with vegan lox cream cheese and Appalachian okra salsa; and an over-the-top dessert affogato cup: ice cream + macarons + all the fixings!

More than one third of all LGBTQ+ Americans live in the South, and it’s time to celebrate that. Join us for a drag brunch in honor of Appalachian Pride and a hopeful look into a world in which the human rights of LGBTQ+ persons are respected so that they are able to live with dignity: free from discrimination, persecution, and violence. This lively event will feature a fabulous cocktail hour, featuring local drag performers from Asheville Drag Brunch, followed by a beautifully crafted meal. With each course, Andrew Magazine will engage in conversation with each chef about their own personal stories about identity and equality, and how they have found family and community through cooking.
