Ashley English

A feast is more than just a meal. It’s a repository of our proudest and happiest memories, of celebrations of food, of culture, of family and friendship. The ingredients don’t have to be fancy. But they have to feel real.

Ashley English gardens, crafts and makes delicious food. She’s become a low-key independent style icon along the way through her cookbooks and guidebooks. But her real passion is for sharing with friends. It’s like a holiday when English hosts a feast at her home in the mountains of North Carolina. Everyone brings something special to them. It’s homemade entertaining: The way things ought to be.
