Our Food

Food should be a mindful celebration of the wondrous experience of being alive. (Principles of Prana)

At the Carolina Bed & Breakfast we believe that food should be…

  • Seasonal, fresh, and locally sourced whenever possible
  • Made flavorful with fresh herbs and spices
  • Innovative and interesting
  • Attractive in presentation
  • Prepared with love and attention to detail

With its strong agriculture roots, including many small farms using sustainable practices, and chefs dedicated to enhancing the farm to table experience, Asheville has become a mecca for lovers of excellent food.  At the Carolina Bed & Breakfast your Asheville food experience will begin with breakfast. Our evening reception includes Biltmore Beverages as well as a selection of hot and cold canapés which are a highlight for many of our guests.  And when you return home in the evening a small sweet treat will be found in your room.

Breakfast was different both mornings, but equally good. I loved that they always had nuts, cookies or chocolate available to satisfy any cravings.

A Note from Your Host…

The peonies of May are finished in our garden and the daisies of June and July are spreading their color, flanked by roses and nasturtiums. Our tomato plants are lush and already heavy with fruit.  The jalapenos are gifting me with their usual non-stop harvest and this year, at last, I might get a zucchini or two!  It is summer in Western North Carolina with long hot days and nights cooled by the mountain breeze.  The ceiling fans revolve in a lazy circle over the porch swing.  It’s a perfect vantage point to watch the children ride by on their bikes and listen to the birds as they sing in the trees.  This is when “seasonal” cooking really comes into its own.  Each week brings a new pleasure from the early radishes and sweet peas of summer to the red plums of June and the sweet peaches of July and August.  With so much abundance it is hard to decide what to make for our guests so every week brings something new to the table.

We love our town and our mountains and look forward to welcoming you to the Carolina Bed & Breakfast!
