Asheville, NC’s new culinary spectacular, Chow Chow presented by Kimpton Hotel Arras, welcomes everyone to the table September 12-15, 2019. Named for a piquant vegetable slaw that has perked up generations of Appalachian dinner plates, this festival celebrates the bounty of the ancient landscape that envelops the city. From nationally recognized chefs to multi-generational farmers to millers, bakers, potters, weavers, and brewers, Chow Chow shines a light on the ancient creative spirit of the region that continues to make the Blue Ridge Mountains a delicious place to taste, to see, to explore and to experience through immersive culinary experiences. The festival’s lineup of 25+ events includes grand tastings, chef demonstrations, charitable collaborations, and a unique array of hands-on experiences in and around town.
