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 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 one of five local restaurants:
Simply drop off three wild ingredients right after your tour and top Asheville chefs will turn them into a complementary dish to start off your meal. Here’s how:
After registering for a tour, choose where you would like to go to dinner. You can also go to lunch at Rhubarb or Sunday brunch at The Market Place. Just remember that tour locations are 15-45 minutes from downtown Asheville.
If you are on an afternoon tour with us, you will need to make your reservation for the next day.
Make your reservation by phone or online. Just be sure to indicate that you’ll be foraging with us. If you have any food restrictions, let them know that too, even if you indicated that when you registered.
At the end of the tour, your guide will pack up three wild ingredients in separately labeled bags. Drop these off at the restaurant (or for Vue, at the concierge desk) immediately after your tour. Try to keep them cool on the way. When you return to the restaurant for your meal, your wild dish will be on the house.
Wild Food Stroll
Participants on our wild food stroll at the Omni Grove Park Inn can opt to experience find dining at the hotel that evening. While you enjoy the hotel’s remarkable view of the sunset, the chefs at Vue 1913 will craft a free appetizer to accompany your meal featuring the edibles you met that afternoon. 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. You can make a reservation 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.
Order whatever else you’d like; your wild dish will be on the house.
