2012 Asheville Small Plate Crawl

Let’s talk food, because, well, lately we’ve been loving conversations about food. It could be that Brigette is deep in the pages of Ruth Reichl‘s foodie coming-of-age novel, Tender at the Bone. It could be that we are happily reminded every day that we live in the mountains of Western North Carolina, where local food reigns and local farmers are loved.

So let’s talk food. And small plate menus. And Foodtopia, othewise known as Asheville, North Carolina {just 20-25 minutes from the Inn on Mill Creek}. Mix those all together and you have the perfect recipe for the Asheville Small Plate Crawl, which takes place February 21-23.

Presented by the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association and the Carolina Epicurean, the Asheville Small Plate Crawl gives you the chance to sample culinary specialties from Asheville’s independent restaurants, without breaking your budget and without having to pick just one of our area’s fabulous dining destinations. Win-win!
