Restaurants in Haywood County are being encouraged to jump on the Melange of the Mountains train, which will return this year April 10-13.
The event is expanding again this year, with a growing lineup of culinary-themed festivities over several days.
Melange began several years ago as a one-night gala where restaurants showcased samples of their signature dishes. That remains the keystone event of Melange, but it will kick off an entire array of weekend with an array of specialty dinners, culinary demos and tastings hosted by Melange of the Mountains participants. Events such as Farm to Table, Hops to Tap, Sip and Stroke, Dinner on the Mountain, Champagne & Caviar, Five Course Candlelight Dinner, and Wine Pairings will take place throughout the county.
The event is a partnership between the Haywood Chamber of Commerce, Haywood County Tourism Development Authority and Buy Haywood.
A listing of participating restaurants along with additional information will be released at a later date.
