Food and Wine Classic in Aspen
For the last 35 years, through different owners and corporate partners, the Editors and Publishers at Food & Wine Magazine have attracted the nation’s top culinary talent every June, with the promise of mountain breezes, stunning scenery and a seriously deep bench of winemakers and producers from around the globe. It’s also very good marketing for a magazine brand. It is commonly referred to as “The Classic” in Aspen, and having attained elder statesman status, it is still a showcase for the magazine’s top talent, as well as a chance to showcase their “Best New Chefs” issue that comes out in July.
Coming up on this week’s show: Why so many food festivals? A reflection from the granddaddy of them all, the Food & Wine Classic at Aspen, as Steve talks to some of the people responsible for putting on one of the nation’s biggest food events of the year, all tucked away, high in the Rockies.
