Local Cafe Now Serving Bone Broth

free range grass fed bone broth

There are many delicious ways to improve your health, and a great place to start, believe it or not, is with good ole fashioned bone broth. For thousands of years bone broths have provided essential minerals and nutrients to our ancestors worldwide, and they are still part of every known culinary tradition on earth. Bone broth is a flavorful liquid made by boiling the bones of just about any vertebrate you can think of, typically poultry, beef, venison, bison, lamb, or fish, in water for an extended period of time, typically anywhere from 6 to 72 hours depending upon the bones used.

Cafe Kathmandu: Himalayan Nirvana

Cafe Kathmandu, Asheville, NC

I had the delightful occasion to dine a few weeks ago at Kathmandu, in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. I am a bit partial to exotic flavors and tastes, and adventurous. Apart from an unpleasant experience with some freshly caught undercooked grilled octopus in Cozumel, my escapades in finding new and delicious off-the-beaten path items has been quite exciting indeed.

The Poor Dears

Cute kittens mewling for mum.

My, my, Asheville. A fortnight ago, you might recall I published two reviews on gourmet boutique doughnut shops. As I’d mentioned in the posts, these aren’t the sort of establishments that I usually f

The Asheville Doughnut Experience: Vortex Doughnuts

Vortex Doughnuts' Chalkboard Illustration

As I mentioned previously in my review of Hole, found here on AshevilleBlog.com, I am a big fan of boutique doughnut shops and grew up in an area with a wide selection of them. This has not been an area where Asheville has excelled, but a burgeoning local industry and doughnuts and a dearth of well-written reviews has prompted me to drag myself out into the frosty Halloween morning to sample the wares of two brand new establishments in Asheville.

The Asheville Doughnut Experience: Hole on Haywood Road

The Hole's doughnuts in Asheville, North Carolina

I am a transplant to Asheville; yes, I own it. I love Asheville's food scene, but one thing it has never done well until now is boutique style doughnuts. Tired of the same old same old chains like Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme, I have avoided trying to get a good doughnut in Asheville for a long time. This morning I decided to give a third perspective on the two newcomers to Asheville doughnuts: Hole and Vortex Doughnuts (read my review on Vortex here). As new establishments, they both get a little wiggle room in my opinion for working new bugs out of their preparation and customer service experience.
