Tomato Jam Cafe changes owners, farewell party Sat June 26

Tomato Jam Cafe, one of my favorite lunch spots, undergoes a change in management as owners Rebecca and Charlie move their family back home to California.

It's a sad, sad day for Asheville Twitter Nation (who met there frequently for chicken gyros, spoonbread and Charlie's killer cupcakes), for all their Asheville fans, and for me.

The cafe will continue under the same name with new owners Deb and Cory. Meet them and say goodbye to Rebecca, Charlie and Willow at a "
Passing-of-the-Spatula" pot luck get-together in the Tomato Jam parking lot Saturday night at 6:30.

The goodbye party even has its own Eventbrite site where you can register your covered dish!

From the Eventbrite site:

WHEN: Saturday, June 26th from 6:30 to 9 or so

Goodbye Charlie and Rebecca (and Willow), and good luck! I wish Deb and Cory well, but it's not going to be the same without you. See you on the Twitter, and thanks for friendship, good times and good food. We are really going to miss you.

Thanks, Jen... it is the end of an era, but many new beginnings. We are going to miss Asheville terribly.

Deb and Cory are putting together a great crew, and intend to continue with Tomato Jam as is - full of good food and love, same recipes you've been enjoying.

Thanks to you all for being part of our Tribe. You've made the journey delightful!

Hope to see you all tonight for the parkinglot party, and for cupcakes and spoonbread in Chico, CA!


Rebecca, Charlie and Willow Mae
