Food & Wine Classic In Aspen- Part II The Food

June 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

Aside from being a magical weekend of beautiful nature, star sightings and master chef wisdom, the focus was to celebrate culinary delights. The highlight dishes were served from Food & Wine’s annual Best New Chefs. The annual “Best New Chefs” event typically held Saturday night was replaced with the Chefs working the Tasting tents–two at a time at each Tasting event. Nashville’s own Erik Anderson and Josh Habiger of Catbird Seat made the list this year (must make reservation ASAP)!

The menu for the weekend

Hard at work feeding the hungry crowds. Look at that cheese!

Amish Pork Belly; Fluke Americaine; Sauteed Corn; Short Rib and Tongue Rendang

Besides the New Chefs exhibit, there were vendors from all over the world offering their unique and inspiring dishes–definitely something for everyone!

Louisiana Shrimp

There was a Spain-themed tent that served up delicious Spanish tapas every day.

Truffles in Paradise

Olive Oil vendor had the best idea…. vanilla bean ice cream topped with E.V.O.O and sea salt–surprisingly rich and delicious!

The Afternoon Saloon on Friday and Saturday at the Hotel Jerome served up signature drinks perfect for the warm afternoon sun and mouthwatering passed hors d’oeuvres to tide attendees over through the afternoon session.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for a recap on the most fun job of the weekend–wine tasting!
