Recipes from Carolina Bed & Breakfast

Fresh Carolina peaches in the summer; herbs picked from the garden outside the kitchen door; tomatoes warm from the sun; local Western North Carolina apples in the fall; home baked cookies, muffins and bread; jams, pickles and chutneys, prepared on the premises: here at our Asheville inn, our bed and breakfast recipes often feature locally produced, seasonal foods.

We believe that the trade-off for convenience in using processed, ready-made foods and mixes is the loss of flavor and quality in the final product. Part of the experience of staying at our inn in Asheville is being pampered with excellent North Carolina recipes, homemade breakfasts, evening hors d’oeurves, and bedtime sweets.

With that in mind, the following recipes are provided for you to enjoy at home and include some of our guests’ favorites. Easy to prepare and serve, we hope they will make you think of our Asheville hospitality here at the Carolina Bed & Breakfast.  For more recipes please visit our blog, The Kitchen Garden  You may also enjoy #Fridaynightbites on Twitter.

Our Guests Say...

The first impression upon walking in to the Carolina B&B is one of warmth and welcome. The impression is confirmed as you experience the small touches that make all the difference.

The Robin’s Nest room was small and cozy and out of the way, which is just what we were looking for. The bed was plush and there is a great corner gas fireplace that kept the room toasty.

A Note from Your Host…

January is almost gone (just like the snow which is melting fast).  Now is the time to think seriously about Valentine’s Day.  This year, due to some happy circumstances around dates, it’s not too late!  Yes, our rooms are booked for Friday and Saturday, February 12 & 13th.  But there is still availability for Sunday and Monday, February 14& 15th, with the added bonus that the 15th is Presidents Day, a holiday for many!  Get credit for celebrating the true Valentine’s Day (February 14th) and book an overnight stay at the Carolina.  We will be doing our best with hearts and flowers and special dishes all weekend long.  There are fireplaces in every room while many of our rooms have Jacuzzi or whirlpool bathtubs.  A hotel is okay for some things, but it takes a Bed & Breakfast to really achieve romance!  Call now 828-254-3608.

Looking forward, the Biltmore opens a special exhibit, Fashionable Romance: Wedding Gowns In Film, on February 12th. Gowns from films set in the years from 1645 to 1935 will be displayed in the rooms of the house along with the never-before exhibited wedding veil of Jacqueline Kennedy.  As visitors to last year’s Downton Abbey Exhibit discovered, the addition of mannequins and period costumes adds life and interest to the Biltmore rooms!  Winter Tickets are available from us for $45/person

The inn is open Weekend and Holidays only until Mid-March.  Please check our website for availability.
