Farm to Plate Class Takes a Field Trip to Asheville

There are so many places that we love to go when we're on the Asheville Field Trip. In Fall 2, the class was able to have an extra special treat: the Biltmore mansion decorated for Christmas! Christmas trees and poinsettias galore - plus wonderful coral singers. We went to Sunburst Trout Farms for a lesson in aquaculture. Their smoked trout and trout caviar are award-winning. At Spinning Spider Creamery, we saw the goats and the cheeses, and tasted samples. Another artisan company that brings home the blue ribbons! We dined at Curate, Chef Katie Button's fabulous tapas restaurant. We missed our regular visit to the French Broad Chocolate Company because they were moving into their new digs. Something to look forward to next time!
