Jennifer Broome gives us an upclose look at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic.
Each June thousands of foodies and wine lovers descend upon Aspen for the Food and Wine Classic. It has the reputation of being the best food and wine event in the country. Celebrity chefs are a common sighting at the Grand Tasting, which is the biggest event of the Classic. There are also numerous seminars on food and wine from around the world, along with parties throughout the town. Colorado companies get a chance to shine at Food and Wine Classic, which brings the biggest names and brightest stars in the culinary world to Aspen.
Next year Food and Wine Classic is June 19-21. Tickets should go on sale in early December. Roaring Fork Valley residents can volunteer and receive a pass to the Grand Tasting and seminars. Roaring Fork Valley is defined as Aspen to Rifle.
