Thanks to John Fleer and Tandy Wilson’s culinary artistry, guests at the Down Home Dinner enjoyed a four-course feast preceded by drinks and hors d’oeuvres. The sold-out event hosted more than 100 attendees, and all proceeds benefited Pisgah Legal Services’ Homelessness Prevention Project.

John Fleer, owner of Rhubarb, is a five-time finalist for Best Chef: Southeast from the James Beard Foundation. Tandy Wilson, who won Best Chef: Southeast in 2016, owns City House in Nashville, TN. John and Tandy teamed up for this first-time collaboration that truly was a special evening. 

As John explained during cocktail reception before dinner, he contributes to the community by bringing people around the table, creating shared experiences over food, and this time focusing the cause on homelessness prevention and keeping families and individuals housed in safe, decent, and affordable housing.

Pisgah Legal Services is so grateful for Rhubarb for hosting this amazing evening, and to Tandy Wilson, Sunburst Trout Farms, Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams, Tryon Wines, Steve Pignatiello, and Bear Creek Farm, and Gaining Ground Farms for contributing time, food, and talent to the delicious meal.
