Swannanoa School of Culinary Arts

The Swannanoa School of Culinary Arts offers week-long hands-on immersion in a variety of culinary experiences designed to awaken and broaden the palate, lead you closer to the source of the food you prepare, and provide you with a panoply of skills that will help you celebrate the ordinary in extraordinary fashion.

Our Mission
To inspire a new--and encourage an older--generation of home chefs to gather food consciously, treat it with skill and respect, and share it with passion, furthering the notion that the most important moments we spend are those partaken with friends and family around the table.

Our Chefs
Chefs are messengers/teachers/artists/gatekeepers, with the power to make a difference in the world through educating the tastes of those they feed. The Swannanoa School of Culinary Arts unites over a dozen chefs each week, each one with a different yet common approach to feeding the body and soul. You will be as infused with the enthusiasm of these chefs as you are with the wealth of recipes and culinary tips they will pass on to you as you work side by side.

Our Location
Held on the beautiful campus of Warren Wilson College in the Swannanoa Valley, where once the Cherokee roamed, there is scarcely a better place in the world to repose and revitalize for a week in mid-July. Surrounded by the cool mountains, you will be borne away by the sound of music emanating from the many artists who have come to the same spot to take part in the Swannanoa Gathering (see Asheville is only a skip away, with its many fine restaurants and markets and people.
