Slow Food Foothills April potluck at Tryon’s Melrose Inn

Published 9:25am Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Join Slow Food Foothills for the group’s monthly Slow Food potluck gathering at the historic Melrose Inn in Tryon on Sunday, April 14, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Those attending are asked once again to bring his or her own beverages, place settings, a slow food dish to share, including serving utensil if needed, and a description of your dish noting anything local.

Along with great food in a beautiful surrounding and wonderful conversation on the famed Melrose porch, guests will learn about upcoming Slow Food Foothills events and will be offered a chance to volunteer at our Gigi Dover fundraiser in May.

In 2010, Marilyn Doheny purchased the old historic inn, built in 1889, and it became Marilyn’s Melrose Inn and Artist Retreat Center.

Doheny, a world famous contemporary quilt artist, author, judge, publisher, decorator and gourmet chef, fondly calls the Melrose Inn “The Old Dame” and has been bringing her back to life. The inn has been extensively remodeled, renovated and furnished and decorated with hundreds of art objects from her personal collections.
