Our stellar week in Asheville (July 10-15, 2016) will involve, as always, the top chefs of Western North Carolina, coupled with renowned wine experts, and a surrounding that is pastoral, flanked by blue mountains, and reeling with music and dance as a backdrop. Our theme for 2016 will revolve culinary and musical genres, pairing the best recipes with a backdrop of jazz, blues, Celtic melodies, or Appalachian ballads.

Each day centers around a 3-hour class with master chefs, a gourmet lunch, and a wine tasting afternoon/evening session. The music in the background will be the drone of bagpipes and the lilt of flute and fiddle, as the Swannanoa Gathering's Celtic Week enhances the colors on our plates. Culinary students are welcome to join in evening festivities which last often until dawn breaks over the hill.
