What We’re Cooking and Eating at the 2023 Classic in Aspen

The 2023 Food & Wine Classic in Aspen is upon us. A few of our top chefs are attending this year’s 40th Anniversary of this gathering, sharing their stories with the participants and teaching how to prepare several of their best-loved dishes. We’ve pinned these recipes for when we return home and will cook Carla Hall’s barbequed shrimp throughout the summer and serve with Stephanie’s Tequila-infused mockinggoat. Maneet Chauhan’s Stuffed Parathas are sure to be in our regular bread selection, as is Bobby Flay’s Squid Ink Fettuccine. Buddha Lo’s Salmon Wellington will star at any upcoming dinner events. Prepare with the help of the most talented chefs using these recipes.
