In April all of the inns in the Asheville Bed and Breakfast Association will be celebrating local cheeses from Western North Carolina. Come celebrate with us! The Asheville area has a dazzling number of high quality artisanal dairies and creameries, many open for tours and tastings. This month they will be hosting the WNC Cheese Trail event, inviting visitors to the area and local folks as well to spend an afternoon exploring our beautiful mountains and countryside while sampling some of the best handmade cheeses in the area.
All of our inns will be providing you with maps to help guide your adventure as well as recipes using the infinite variety of Asheville area cheeses. Asheville Food truly does begin with Breakfast and at our inns you will get some of the best breakfasts in North Carolina prepared with local cheeses. Here at A Bed of Roses we will also be hosting Saturday local wine and local cheese pairings from 5-6pm featuring wines from Addison Farms Vineyard and cheeses from Three Graces Dairy. The WNC Cheese month celebrations will culminate in the Carolina Mountain Cheese Fest on April 26, 2015 taking place at Highland Brewery from 12-4pm. Learn about cheesemaking, see a goat milking demonstration and watch Asheville’s best chefs compete for the best grilled cheese sandwich! You can meet the cheesemakers and sample cheese from 25 local creameries, just in case you didn’t get to all of them on the cheese trail! Tickets are available at all Asheville Bed & Breakfast Association inns, including A Bed of Roses, for ½ price.
