Learn from the masters with world famous sommeliers and renowned chefs conducting the daily classes and seminars offered through Aspen's famed FOOD & WINE Classic. Where else will there be that many experts at your fingertips sharing their secrets to success for culinary delight or how to pair the perfect wine with any meal? Just walk to your next class within the quaint city core of Aspen and you never know what famous chef you might bump into. Choose your classes early because some sell out fast. Also the bigger the star the more likely it is going to be a large seminar setting. For smaller classes with tastings and hands on experiences I recommend looking at classes conducted in Old Aspen Art Museum or the Little Nell Salon, which are smaller venue options and more conducive for an intimate class setting. The AMEX Restaurant Trade Program is a “must do” for anyone related to the food and spirit industry. The programs offer panel discussions with today’s power hitters discussing the road to success and challenges that restaurateurs are facing in today’s ever changing industry. It is an impactful program.
