Adventure Local Asheville
February 27th, 2016

Ever heard of a business that takes you out in your own property or other forested areas, forages food from what’s already growing, and then takes and cooks it into a meal for you?  I kind of doubt it.  [No Taste Like Home was] featured in the Top Twelve Experiences in Asheville for 2012 and have also made it on the Travel Channel.  They teach you how to not eat the mushrooms that end you up in the hospital (or an alternate dimension with the Beatles), what foods could be growing right around your place, and even cook them up for you!  You can even take the foods you found to one of their partner restaurants for a free appetizer as well!  People, if that isn’t Asheville, I don’t know what is anymore.  Rebekah, the marketing girl, was extremely nice and let me in on all the new things they are going to be doing and it’s so exciting to see how much they have grown.  Alan, the owner, is a very down to earth guy and extremely knowledgeable in his trade.  In short, the guy is basically a foraging ninja and I want to be just like him.  Maybe if I get tired of writing and working in marketing I will just head off in the woods and find me some fancy forest meals.  You have no excuse not to book them on a tour, I think I might do the same myself soon.  If you are looking to explore our great outdoors, what better way to do it than to get some food out of it too?
