Aspen’s Food & Wine Classic is kind of like a much more delicious version of a mafia meeting that you see in movies: all of the big names in food and wine will be there, talking about the big issues and consuming a lot of both.
And you can still join.
If you’ve ever watched Food Network or Top Chef or have any interest in fine food and fine wine, you are bound to know a name or a face at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen on June 18-20. And you are bound to taste some of their magnificent creations.
At the Classic, you have the opportunity to sit in on seminars led by culinary greats like Jacques Pépin, Thomas Keller, David Chang, Mario Batali and some of the most knowledgeable wine experts in the world. A big event for the chefs, the sommeliers and the guests, the Food & Wine Classic is a place to learn, to share ideas and to catch up on the new culinary trends for the coming year. Though part of the event is restricted to those involved in the trade, there are more than enough seminars and activities to keep the enthusiastic foodie fully entertained for the weekend.
Good food, good wine, set to the backdrop of beautiful Rocky Mountains and with tickets still available, now is the time to plan that three day weekend, and head to Aspen for one of food’s most important events. It’s pricey, for sure, but worth it if you can drop the cash.
