The foodie scene in Asheville is like no other. This small city hosts a big city-esque food scene. And, with foraging being all the rage, it would only be natural to take a foraging tour with No Taste Like Home. The adventure begins the night before, like an underground club or closed-door restaurants, guests are provided with the foraging location. The location changes depending on conditions.
A typical No Taste Like Home immersive experience usually takes place by taking a walk in the woods; but since this was December, our group took a simple walk on a farm, which became an enlightening adventure with Allan. Our tour had about 14 people or so, mostly adults, which was lead by Alan Muskat, the director of No Taste Like Home and an expert forager with over 20 years of experience. Before heading on our walk, Allan takes inventory of our reasons for coming and where we are visiting from. Some want to forge a connection with the land while others are seeking the ultimate in fresh food and self-reliance. After 3-hours foraging and learning, Alan assessed everything we foraged. Foragers can then take their treasures to one of the three Asheville restaurants that No Taste Like home works with: Zambra Tapas Restaurant, The Market Place, or King James Public House. for no extra charge, where the chef will put together a fantastic dish.
