Our tours include two ways of enjoying your “catch of the day.” Our foraging and private tours include a brief cooking lesson and tasting, and all tours include a free appetizer with lunch, brunch or dinner at one of several Asheville restaurants featuring the edibles you met on your tour.
Foraging & Private Tour
Participants on our Asheville foraging and private tours can enjoy “find dining” at any one of the following local restaurants:
When you make your reservation, simply specify that you’ll be foraging with us. Drop off your finds after the tour, and when you return for your meal, your wild dish will be on the house.
Remember that your tour location can be up to 45 minutes from downtown Asheville, so give yourself plenty of time to get back. If you are on an afternoon tour, you will need to make your reservation for the next day. If you have any food restrictions, let the restaurant know too, even if you indicated that when you registered.
Wild Food Stroll
Participants on our wild food stroll at the Omni Grove Park Inn can opt to experience “find dining” at the inn’s Vue 1913 restaurant. Enjoy a remarkable view of the sunset while the chefs craft an appetizer to accompany your meal featuring the edibles you met on the tour. Order whatever else you’d like; your wild dish will be on the house.
In order to participate, you must be registered for your tour at least 24 hours in advance. After registering for the tour, make a reservation with the restaurant on Open Table or by calling 800-438-5800. Either way, you must specify that you will be coming from the No Taste Like Home tour. If you have any food allergies, restrictions, or preferences, let them know that too, even if you indicated that when you registered.
