Amazing Asheville Class

I taught an amazing class to the most amazing group of people in amazing Asheville.  Let me explain. Asheville has become a sort of “second home” for my classes and for me, as I’ve taught there for many years. It’s wonderful place to teach and be (thank you to my “family” there, the Loves) and it has been called  the “new Portland, Oregon” because it is rife with art, artisans of all sorts, the best bakery in America (Farm and Sparrow), farmers’ markets, and some of the best meat that side of the Atlantic (from Hickory Nut Gap Farm).

I know when I teach in Asheville that everything is the best quality, from the kitchen to the equipment to the ingredients, to the fine people who come to cook with me (yes, that’s all of you featured here!).  And I have family there, so during each visit I am someone’s cousin or aunt which is, indeed, a wonderful thing!

This year, our group of participants made it extra special with fun and zeal to spare!  Here are photos.
