A few weeks ago I traveled to Asheville, North Carolina, specifically for the purpose of visiting Biltmore, a Chateauesque-styled mansion built by George Washington Vanderbilt II in the 1890s. It is the largest privately-owned home in the United States and is visual masterpiece to see in person. A narrative will be coming in the near future about my visit there, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some “Biltmore cooking” I did.
For a birthday present, I picked out Biltmore-Our Table To Yours: Chef’s Selection Cookbook. It’s a beautiful cookbook, filled with mouth watering photos of the dishes as well as interesting anecdotes about the Vanderbilt family and the meals that were prepared there. I also like it because the recipes are grouped into the four seasons of the year.
