Musical Feast: A Wedding Feast from India
Saturday, November 4, 2017 @ 6:30 pm$125
Charlotte Caplan has been enjoying Indian food since her childhood in London. When she moved to the Carolinas and married Mike Brubaker, who plays the French horn in the Asheville Symphony, she found that there were very few Indian restaurants in town. So she made a specialty of learning to cook the delightful and endlessly varied Indian dishes she loves.
Last summer their son, Sam, married an Indian girl, Elina Thomas, and Charlotte and Mike were delighted to organize their wedding feast. Now you are invited to participate in some of that culinary magic with this Musical Feast.
The party will be held at the Caplan-Brubaker home in Montford (address will be provided to attendees via email). Their house was built in 1915 in the Arts and Crafts style for prominent Asheville merchant Gustav Lichtenfels and his wife Edna Long Lichtenfels (a niece of Moses Cone.) It is believed to be one of many Asheville homes designed by Richard Sharp Smith, another English native, who was the resident architect for the Biltmore estate.
The wedding feast, a sit-down dinner, will include a variety of Indian dishes, from appetizers to main dishes and desserts, of the type that might be served at a festive Indian wedding (and will include vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.) The dishes will all be homemade from scratch by Charlotte Caplan and Ellen Nutter and the feast will be accompanied by relevant music selected by Mike.
Come to Montford and enjoy this Musical Feast – an exotic Indian Wedding Feast!
