Moveable Feast Dinner at Biltmore (Spring in the American South) with Executive Chef Damien Cavicchi

While rain threatened to dampen the evening, the storm passed and ushered in cooler temperatures so guests could thoroughly enjoy the meal.  Chef Cavicchi translated his Italian heritage into Southern inspired dishes.  His dishes were skillfully plated and each dish was outstanding.

Enjoying the beautiful evening

Shrimp Creole – Carolina Coast Shrimp, Yellow Tomatoes, Okra, and Carolina Gold Rice

Wood Roasted Leg of Estate Raised Lamb with Fresh Chick Peas, Carrot Puree, Salty Peanut and Herb Salad

Chilled Vegetables, Skillet Cornbread, Thyme Biscuits, Chocolate Icebox Pie and Caramel Hummingbird Cake Towers

There is no question that we eat with all of our senses.  Watching the sun set over the French Broad River and the stars rise in the sky while music is drowned out by the laughter and conversation of new friends that meet over dinner made this a truly memorable experience.  We enjoy finding the exceptional and the unusual.  The Moveable Feast met all the criteria.

A good time was had by all

The Moveable Feast series has it’s next dinner planned for July 21, 2012.   The theme for this evening will be “Southern French Countryside” and the feasting table will be located on a secluded vista in the Biltmore vineyards.  The details for the event are here.

It has been two years since we have spent time in Asheville, but recently the mountains have been calling.  So much has changed in Asheville over the past two years and we look forward to sharing more of our culinary and travel experiences with you.

If you are looking for a mountain getaway, Asheville is one of our favorite places to visit and there are numerous activities to keep you busy at Biltmore.
