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 difference between staying at a B&B and a hotel is the difference between being a stranger in a strange land and visiting good family! James and Susan were so accommodating and really know their town. Nothing could be better than this.

— Sally, Virginia Beach, VA

The first impression upon walking into the Carolina B&B is one of warmth and welcome. The house is delightfully decorated with items that reflect the history of the building as well as the places where Susan and James lived.

A Note from Your Host…

It’s hard to think of holidays and vacations when we are battling hurricanes on our coastlines.  Our hearts go out to those in the path of the storms.  In order to help in some small way, we will donate $10/night for any stay booked for the month of September with us.  Please mention the Hurricane Relief Effort when booking on the phone or online.

Christmas and the the holidays are just around the corner.  This year’s Biltmore Candlelight Evening is entitled “A Vanderbilt Christmas”.  If you have never seen the Biltmore in full holiday splendor it is a lavish and glorious display of lights, decorations and live greenery, including a 40 foot tree in the main dining room.  Visit our Specials Page for details about our Christmas Special.
