Great way to spend an afternoon in Asheville and learn not only about good eating but also some history of the city. Be sure to bring an appetite as the food will fill you up. Next we visit, we will do it again!

Not only was this tour a gastronomic delight, Patty's passion and knowledge of the city's history and architecture made it an excellent introduction to the region. Patty's hilarious, laid back style leave you wanting more at trip's end.
