This is a Flights & Bites cocktail style event, featuring up to 7 chefs creating 3 small dishes each, as well as up to 7 craft beverage makers, offering an array of delicious drink samples. 

Menu sneak peek! These talented chefs are cooking up an exciting selection of dishes! Menu options being discussed are: grilled steak + sausages, local mushroom skewers with black mint aioli, leg of lamb with quinoto, vegan chicha morada (purple corn) cheesecake with grilled strawberries, grilled mexican street corn, dry aged bavette tartine with sweet onion marmalade, charred green tomatoes, whipped nduja + mint pistou crostini, charred sourdough with fermented apple butter + Spanish Mahon, bbq quail with jalapeno peach bbq, grilled scallops with summer corn puree, Sunburst Trout with heirloom tomatoes, dutch overn succotash, grilled peaches + skillet cake and more to come!

The Southern Appalachian Mountains are the oldest and most bio-diverse mountains in the world, offering  endless natural beauty perfect for exploring the outdoors. Humans have been gathering around campfires since time immemorial, sharing food, stories and cultural traditions. But perceptions of engaging with the Great Outdoors have not always felt inclusive of all people. This event will spotlight chefs creating campfire food that represents multiple cultures and highlights current ongoing efforts to ensure Mother Nature is welcoming to everyone.
