The Melange of the Mountains Culinary Weekend announces 10th annual event in April

Press release:

The Haywood Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Haywood County Tourism Development Authority along with Buy Haywood are delighted to announce the Melange of the Mountains Culinary Weekend, April 10-13. This event promises to be the premiere signature event launching the spring tourism season in Haywood County.

If an effort to build upon the success of the previous Melange of the Mountains and provide greater opportunity for everyone; we have modeled this year’s event after the highly successful Highland’s Chamber Culinary weekend event held for the past seven years. Through our new partnerships we have increased our marketing promotions and outreach through print, online and social media outlets. The marketing campaign has been expanded throughout the southeast promoting the weekend and Haywood County as a culinary destination.

The weekend will officially begin at the Melange of the Mountains Gala Thursday evening, April 10 at Laurel Ridge County Club. Participants will prepare tastings of their favorite recipes, showcase or compete for recognition and awards. The gala event will extend into a weekend itinerary filled with an array of specialty dinners, culinary demos, and tastings hosted by Melange of the Mountains participants. Events such as Farm to Table, Hops to Tap, Sip and Stroke, Dinner on the Mountain, Champagne & Caviar, Five Course Candlelight Dinner, Wine Pairings will take place throughout the county.
