On Saturday, July 23 at 6pm, join us for a one-of-a-kind experience of flowers, food, ceramics, and nature. For our first ever farm dinner, we'll set the table amidst a field of flowers and welcome you to a bountiful family-style meal prepared by local chefs Camille Cogswell & Drew DiTomo.
This special supper is part of Flowers & Clay, our annual celebration of flowers, pottery, and community in our small village of Walnut, about 10 minutes from downtown Marshall and 30 minutes from Asheville.
Tickets include a multi-course family-style dinner, local beer, natural wine, and special non-alcoholic beverages. Not only that, but ticketholders will be granted access to the rest of the weekend's Flowers & Clay events including: the pottery show, a self-guided tour of the flower farm on Saturday, flower picking at the dinner and photos, not to mention exclusive access to Carolina Flowers' newest flower farm!
Not only will the food be farm-to-table, but so will the plates and serving dishes! The ceramics for the meal will be exceptionally unique, made by my husband Josh, from clay harvested from the farmland you're dining on, crafted at his wood-fired pottery studio just down the road specifically for this event.
The chefs, Camille and Drew, recently bought the wood-fired bakery in Walnut that has a legacy of great baking going back two decades, and they are already adding to its provenance. Camille is a James Beard Award-winning chef with a background in pastry and Drew cooks exceptional Italian food in addition to consulting for TV productions around the country -- they're amazingly talented and have become great friends of ours! They'll be opening Walnut Family Bakery in the second half of 2022 and diners will get an exclusive chance to hear more about it in person.
This dinner is about community. We look forward to the merriment, conversation, and new friends that will come around this table. Welcome!
