Award-winning Chef Katie Button gives us an insider’s look at Asheville, NC. From her favorite brewery to delectable treats, she covers all the bases. And from our experience, she knows her stuff and throws out some great places to visit.

Come along as she gives us a guided tour.


There's more to Asheville, North Carolina, than craft beer—though that alone is a good reason to visit. (The city is home to over 30 breweries.) This cultural hub has a rich architectural heritage; it’s a place where grand Art Deco halls mingle with a French Renaissance–style manor (hello, Biltmore Estate), and there’s local artwork on display in the River Arts District. But the real draw is the city’s killer food scene, a fact that led readers of our sister publication, Travel + Leisure, to rank Asheville as one of America’s top destinations in the magazine’s 2018 World’s Best Awards. For an insider’s take, we sat down with F&W Best New Chef alum Katie Button, chef-owner of Asheville’s Cúrate, Nightbell, and a new Appalachia-inspired bagel shop, Button & Co.
