At No Taste Like Home, we offer several ways to enjoy find dining:
Our three-hour foraging tour includes a brief cooking lesson and tasting. You can take the rest of your finds home with you or have them prepared at any of the Asheville restaurants listed below.
We offer morning and/or afternoon tours depending on the season. After registering for the tour, make a reservation specifying that you’ll be foraging with us. Groups attending a morning tour can make a reservation for anytime after 5 pm the day of the tour. Groups attending an afternoon tour can make a reservation for anytime after 8 pm at either The Market Place or Tastee Diner. Groups attending a morning or afternoon tour can make a reservation at any restaurant listed below for anytime the following day.
If you have any food restrictions, let the restaurant know, even if you let us know when you registered for the tour.
At the end of the tour, we will bag up three ingredients from your “catch of the day.” To have them for dinner that night, if you are on a morning tour, you will need to drop them off by 2:30 pm, and if you are on an afternoon tour, you need to drop them off by 6 pm (at The Market Place or Tastee Diner). When you arrive, the restaurant may be closed, but someone will be there. Don’t just leave the bag somewhere; make sure you hand it to someone.
When you return for your meal, your wild dish will be on the house. Purchase of one entree per person is required.
