 NOVEMBER. ISSUE 63. 2017
Marcels Culinary Experience
November is here and it's the season of food, family, and friends! Our three favorite things.
 
With our favorite food holiday just a few weeks away, we can think of no better reason to take a cooking class and be inspired with menus designed to entertain family and friends for a meal around the dining table or a casual gathering in the kitchen.
 
This month marks the beginning of the holiday festivities in Marcel's from beautiful linen trunk shows, the 10th annual Ladies Night Out, the Asheville Bee Charmer Cookbook demo and signing, to the Holiday Walk, not to mention the amazing deals and promotions like our Juliska Placesetting Completion Event and our November Salt, Spices and Brine promotion.
 
We have sourced some of the best products for our gift boxes this year and we've packaged them with your family, friends, and co-workers in mind. Take advantage of our early bird discount by ordering online with our special discount code below.
 
If the thought of entertaining stresses you out, give us a call. Our team of in-home chefs with Maison will ease your anxiety and take the worry out of your event to ensure you have a stress-free party.
 
Keep your eyes on our Facebook page and your emails - we will have information about Black Friday and Small Business Saturday savings you won't want to miss.
