Filming Biltmore Tree Raising

We were thrilled to be able to film the Biltmore Tree Raising from the tree’s point of view last year – We’ll be there tomorrow to film this year’s festivities; Jared likes to make sure he hands his wish list to Santa in person!


For our Valentine’s edition of Film Friday we wanted to whisk you away to France; fortunately in lovely downtown Asheville you can enjoy the experience of dining in a French Bistro by visiting Bouchon.

Here’s the Foodtopia profile of Bouchon’s own Michel Baudouin to whet your appetite.

What better to treat your loved one (or yourself!) to on the most romantic day of the year, than the delicious, fair-trade, locally made chocolate delights of the  French Broad Chocolate Lounge?

One of the first videos we made for the Foodtopia series was this profile of Dan and Jael Rattigan, and it’s just the thing to inspire your confectionary reveries.
