Farm to Feast
As fall brings a welcome note of cooler weather to the Blue Ridge Mountains, the leaves begin changing into a blaze of glorious reds, golds, and yellows. This is the time to celebrate the harvest and share the bounty of farm and field with friends and family.
For Biltmore, fall changes our focus from the light flavors of summer to an emphasis on heartier fare that warms the chill in the air. Inspired by the estate’s long history of hospitality and the rustic elegance of our farming community, Biltmore’s Artisan Serveware Collection and our charming Textured Ceramic Bakeware help you serve up your savory fall feasts in style!
Start with style
For a no-fuss feast, begin with appetizers served on our Acacia Galvanized Metal Tray—it has flip-down handles for easy storage and its design is sure to earn compliments anytime you use it. Simply add our wild-caught Alaskan Biltmore Smoked Salmon, prepared and smoked with all-natural ingredients, cool some Biltmore Wine in our Vanderbilt Chiller, and let the party begin!
Continue to bring barn-inspired beauty to your table with our Artisan Raw Finish Wire Tray, perfect for your favorite homemade breads and rolls. Complete the look—and the easy entertaining—with the Artisan Galvanized Metal Serving Tray and Bowl.
Ready for the next course? Prep and serve salads directly from our Artisan Acacia Bowls, or wow your guests with a one-dish wonder in our Textured Ceramic Bakeware (available in Red, White, and Gray). This Savory Butternut Squash Tart from Executive Chef Spencer Hilgeman of Village Social is a great fall or holiday dish that’s sure to please.
Finish your feast on a sweet note with our delicious Granola Bread Pudding (shown in Textured Ceramic Bakeware/White) or an array of local cheeses and honey on the Artisan Acacia and Marble Oval Cheeseboard. Whatever you choose, your friends and family will appreciate how effortless you make each gathering!
