It’s hard to believe that The Aspen Food & Wine Classic is celebrating more than 30 years in the Rocky Mountains. It is by far one of our favorite Aspen events.
Soffia Wardy-Chef Nobu Matsuhisa
The weekend is always filled with delicious food, amazing wines and great entertainment, featuring the likes of Elvis Costello and dinners served by chefs like José Andrés, Mario Batali and Michel Nischan. In addition to wines from all over the world, we enjoy tasting brandies, vodkas, ports and amazing chocolates, that have included a memorable chocolate skull filled with liquor and ice cream inspired Godiva truffles. The annual 5K run with Bobby Flay always makes everybody hungry and the seminars, talks and chef demos are fantastic. We love to catch up with all of our favorite chefs and look forward to this year’s event!
