Welcome to Chef Ricardo’s Kitchen.   My wife Suzanne and I owned and operated Lomo Grill, Waynesville’s award-winning restaurant for 16 years. Now we cater private parties throughout the greater Asheville area, specializing in wedding weekends, reunions, dinner parties, holiday gatherings and private catering for guests of our Yurt.

Our Wildcat Ridge Farm is home to the most extensive collection of peonies in Western North Carolina.  We are open to the public daily during peony season (May), then by appointment June through October. Please send us an email if you’d like to make an appointment.  We look forward to welcoming you.

We also host culinary tours to Argentina.  Our next trips are scheduled for 2019. We are pleased you’re here and look forward to sharing adventures with you!
