Heading to Asheville next month. Any recommendations for local food blogs to add to our Chowhound research? Thanks!

    I'd check out the archives of the food section of our free local weekly paper, the Mountain Express. Chowhound is my favorite - maybe post where you're thinking about going so far and people can chime in with their opinions? That's always fun. :)

      www.ashvegas.com is nicely put together. And I follow the eatingasheville feed on twitter.

          The Citizen-Times website is pretty useless, imo. They've cut back dramatically on the food content, and have now placed restrictions on access without a subscription.

                huh...interesting...I never noticed that blog before. I particularly like this piece:

            Thanks, everybody.

            We're planning to visit Curate, Admiral, Cucina 24, Market Place, 12 Bones, White Duck, City Bakery, and the downtown farmer's market while we're there. I'm always interested in seeing those little out of the way restaurants, shops, or stores that seem to pop up on local blogs, though.

              You might want to grab your reservations for Curate and the Admiral now. Have a great visit to our city!

                Thanks! We made our reservations about 2 weeks ago -- wanted to be VERY sure that we didn't wait too long!

                  You may want/need to grab a drink at Storm or a margarita at Limones. I tell my wife I need a drink, she says I only want one.
