Diaspora

Friday, June 24, 2022, 5:30-8:00PM

Atelier Maison - 121 Sweeten Creek Rd, Asheville, NC

$60 per person

This is a cocktail style Flights & Bites 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. 

Diaspora speaks to the dispersion of populations from their indigenous lands, usually by forced migration. And as both history and modern cuisine testify: where people go, food goes with them. In this way, culinary meetings and mashups from across the globe have resulted in the flavor and richness that is modern food. Join Chow Chow for an event exploring both the origin and the fusion of cuisine, an edible query into what is lost and what is gained when food and people migrate. Taste the stories, and enjoy a conversation led by Meherwan Irani - of the award-winning Chai Pani Restaurant Group and Luis Martinez - Chef & Corn Scout - Tequio Foods, exploring each chef’s own unique story of migration and culinary influence on their journey to become who they are now.  

Featured Chefs/Restaurants: Hector and Julia Revilla - Mamones, Queenie Mcleod - Queen's Island Cuisine, Daniel Szabo - 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage, Brandon Shepard - Shepard Barbecue, Dune Pierre Michel - French Broad Pantry, Brandon Staton - Leah & Louise, Cleophus Hethington - Benne on Eagle
