Special to the Tribune- Historic Biltmore Village businesses and ASAP, partnered for a perfect evening under the stars. This inaugural event which is sure to be repeated served as a fundraiser for the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project.
As the evening progressed, the twinkling lanterns came to life; Boston Way was lined with farm tables and guests were served a 5-course gourmet dinner, from appetizers to desserts. Guests had the chance to meet and mingle with our award winning chefs, brew masters, local farmers and a vineyard owner. ASAP works diligently to promote local farms and these farms supplied the fresh meat and produce for the event.. The meal featured some amazing dishes provided by The Cantina., Catawba Brewing, Corner Kitchen, Doubletree Catering, Fig, Hi-Wire Brewing, Red Stag Grill, Rezaz and The Village Wayside.
