A Question of Taste
Volume 1, Number 1 February, 2010

Dear Culinary Enthusiasts,
Welcome to the new edition of the Seasonal School of Culinary Arts newsletter, A Question of Taste.  In its pages we will strive to keep you entertained monthly with updates of what is exciting in the culinary world and where and how you can join us for upcoming sessions and events.  Here's hoping to see you in Asheville, Ithaca, Sonoma or Paris!

A Mid-Winter Seasonal Celebration

Joining forces with Laurey's Catering and the Asheville Wine Market, the Seasonal School of Culinary Arts will be presenting a wine-paired, truffle-laced dinner on Wednesday, March 3, at 7:00 pm at Laurey's Catering, 67 Biltmore Avenue, Asheville, NC.  The price is a steal at $65 for 5 courses, wine and truffles included.  Come one, come all!



Next happening is an extraordinary excursion to Paris, from May 5-9.  Sessions will include shopping in the local outdoor markets, hands-on instruction at l'Ecole des Gourmets, wine tastings, and a crowning outing for a Norman luncheon with Susan Loomis at On Rue Tatin.


Turning Your Basket into a Banquet

The first week (July 11-17) of our Asheville sessions this year will be centered around the ingredients one might find in a CSA market basket.  Exploring the Root Family, the Fruit Family, the Leaf Family the Aromatic Family, and the Animal Family, Asheville's top chefs will lead you through hands-on sessions with all the essentials.

Saturday, July 17th will be the occasion for those who will be joining us for both Asheville weeks to add another dimension to your palate.  We will tour the Biltmore vineyards, walk through the gardens, and lunch at the famous Winery Bistro.  Those who would like to join us simply for this day are welcome to sign up as well.
