Melange of the Mountains of Haywood County

Thomas & Christine Mallette, Owners/Brokers of Realty World Heritage Realty had the distinct pleasure of serving as judges for the 2008 Melange of the Mountains event held at the Balsam Mountain Inn on Thursday March 26.

Thomas was a judge for the salad, seafood, and dessert portion and Christine used her vast tasting skills for the soup, meat, and dessert dishes. It may have been the best jobs Thomas or Christine have ever had!
