Prior to attending the TypeAMom Conference in Asheville, N.C., I had been following tweets from the Foodtopian Society and followed a link to their main page. I was instantly smitten. Here is what grabbed me: “We believe food can be naturally grown, artfully produced and lovingly prepared, all within one vibrant community. We believe that good food is sustainable food, with farm-to-table meals that feature seasonal ingredients from local fields.”
I was fortunate to meet a representative from the society at the conference and had a lovely talk. I asked her to send me information on any events they have coming up and she asked me to share this with you: Currently, they are celebrating their three-week celebration Seasonal Sizzle through December 19th.
By the way, some of the chefs at independent restaurants created special holiday recipes that were specifically designed to be festive, easy-to-prepare AND affordable. Also, if you have not ever visited Ashevile, consider going. I really is a lovely and thriving town and I must say, the food scene is fantastic.
To excite you even further, the Foodtopian society is giving away a handmade bundt cake pan from the New Morning Gallery and a recipe book from the Folk Art Center. Who in their right mind would not want a bundt pan and a cookbook?
