  • Mountain Fiesta is a beautiful, rural, rustic venue set in Spring Creek for celebrations, weddings, retreats, workshops and private parties.  We offer full service catering for weddings, gatherings and for our overnight Airbnb guests.  This is our home and one of WNC unique event venues. We want to live a full life in beautiful Madison County and blend our talents in the kitchen and the gardens and create a sanctuary for ourselves and in turn our guests.


    I am an Ex-Mid-Westerner, Ex-School Teacher, mother, new grandmother and Mountain Mermaid.  Happy to live and "play in the dirt" where I work.  I provide you with unlimited support by phone/text/email during your planning process, but will be available on-site to ensure a smooth event, I am not a self-proclaimed event planner but, "I have your back".  I also create florals such as table arrangements, bridal bouquets and boutonnieres.  


    Like most of us, my training started with my mom in Mexico City. In my wildest dreams I wouldn’t have thought Mauricio Abreu would someday be a chef. I came to the States as a very young man in the printing business and found my way into the kitchen by way of a dishwasher. Lots of dues………………and an appreciative and generous employer that believed I had some talent and the will to persevere, helped me to attend Johnson and Wales in 1993, a tribute to years of hard work and dedication. I opened 4 of his restaurants in Des Moines, IA and after our 11 year relationship became executive chef at the Splash restaurant in Des Moines for 3 years.

    In 2001, I followed my heart to Asheville and worked for Rezaz, while pursuing my dream to open a restaurant with my best friend Brenda Wienke. In 2004, we opened Chef In Motion. We created a small private intimate dining venue with custom menus and also opened for lunch to a Mission Hospital and AB-Tech crowd. In 2010, we opened Chef Mo’s Restaurant & Bar in South Asheville where we served affordable, simple, Latin inspired fair.   After 3 dedicated years we closed the restaurant to give full attention to Brenda’s passion, Mountain Fiesta. 

  • If you feel we could be a good fit, schedule a tour with us at your earliest convenience. 

    We are located 45 minutes from downtown Asheville.
