For those of us who missed the Aspen Food & Wine Classic
, the mountains offer another (and more affordable) chance to enjoy top-notch noshing this weekend.
The first-ever Crested Butte Land Trust Wine & Food Festival
brings together Denver and Crested Butte chefs (think Andrea Frizzi
, Il Posto
; Elise Wiggins
; Tyler Wiard
; Tim Egelhoff
), and a handful of master sommeliers. Classes cover Bordeaux and bourbon, and each evening, the chefs whip up a multicourse meal.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Crested Butte Land Trust , an organization
dedicated to conserving mountain habitats, but the best part of the festival is that events are sold individually.
Friday-Sunday, times vary, $80. Crested Butte, 303-809-0404
