Three Cheers for Culinarians Day

The folks at Asheville Wine and Food Festival have asked us to help spread the word about an unofficial holiday for chefs and cooks alike called Culinarians Day. This day, July 25, is a time for us to recognize and thank those that bring joy to us through their food. Why don’t you take some time this year to thank your favorite food maker? Here are a couple of ideas to help you along your way:

Ask one of your favorite chefs to prepare you something off menu for a super special dining experience. A lot of chefs cook the same menu day after day and are delighted in the chance to challenge their creativity. We do this a lot and aren’t usually disappointed!

How about asking your server if you could chat with the chef at your favorite spot in person to thank them for all of the delicious meals you have had?


If there’s a person in your home that does the majority of the cooking, why don’t you take some time to cook for them on July 25th? This is a great way to thank them for keeping your belly full.


This one is a little old school, but write a note to your favorite chef or cook to let them know how you feel about them and drop it off. There isn’t a person on the planet that doesn’t appreciate a handwritten thank you!

We have had so much fun learning about Culinarians Day for Asheville Wine and Food Festival! Don’t forget to join us August 18-19, 2017 for this year’s intallation of the event in Asheville, NC! There will be chef demos, lots of food, lots of drink and all of the fun.

There are so many dining options in Asheville, NC and we know it can be hard to choose where to celebrate Culinarians Day. Who says you have to limit it to one day? Might we suggest visiting one of the restaurants that will be featured at Asheville Wine and Food this year? We know they would LOVE to take care of you and your loved ones.

Here are the Highlighted Chefs for this year’s event:
