Photos: Food lust and chef candy from the 2011 Aspen Food & Wine Classic
The cognoscenti of the food world -- 5,000 strong -- descended upon Aspen this past weekend for the 29th annual Food & Wine magazine Classic, one of the most heralded culinary jubilees in the country. It was a whirlwind weekend of unparalleled gluttony, hangovers, pig parties, celebrity chef sightings and wine and cooking demonstrations, and we were there, often staggering, to capture the highlights. Herewith the weekend in photos:
