This June, celebrate the beginning of summer at one of the top culinary festivals in the country, the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen 2015. From June 19 – 21, discover the cooking secrets of the world's best chefs during cooking demonstrations. Learn how to pair food and wine while attending a seminar. Also, get in on the latest trends in the culinary industry. This year's Food & Wine Classic begins with the Celebrity Chef 5K Charity Run on the Rio Grande Trail. Join Richard Blais, Tim Love, Marcus Samuelsson, and fellow Classic attendees for some morning exercise on one of Aspen's most scenic trails. Another unique event to check out is the Food & Wine dinner party at the top of Aspen Mountain on Saturday night, the 20th of June. Look forward to a spectacular gourmet dining experience with the opportunity for some excellent star gazing before riding the gondola to the base of the mountain.
