Through restaurant ventures and a nonprofit culinary training program, Asheville is finding fresh ways to celebrate its soul food legacy.
Chef Clarence Robinson and artist Ann Miller Woodford headline Folkmoot’s upcoming Souther Supper Series soul food dinner. Also in this week’s Asheville food news, West End Baker and Café makes artisan pizza for FEAST, PennyCup Coffee Co. and Biscuit Head open new locations, chef A.J. Gregson moves his popular Wednesday pop-up dinner series to his new Fairview Road barbecue restaurant and more.
From feeding the community at Western Carolina Rescue Ministries to starring in cooking videos with Ingles Market, this local chef is determined to inject some laughter into Asheville’s food scene.
Proceeds from the upcoming pre-Valentine’s Day dinner will support Youth Transformed for Life, an organization promoting self-improvement and personal responsibility among disadvantaged teens.
