An additional bonus, The AIR PASSPORT program will be officially kicked off at this event. the AIR PASSPORT offers discounts at many of the best and most popular restaurants and offers a great incentive to try out AIR member restaurants in the Asheville Area. The cost for the AIR PASSPORT is $50 with coupons totaling over $600 in savings at AIR member restaurants; coupons are good for one year.
A portion of the proceeds from both A Taste of Asheville and the AIR PASSPORT sales will partially fund AIR’s Chefs of Tomorrow scholarship program at A-B Tech.
