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.

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!
