A Few Favorite Photos from the Food & Wine Classic

I've been sorting through the hundreds of photos I took this weekend at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, as I prepare my "Top 10 Highlights" post for About.com. I decided to take a little break to post a few of my favorites. I hope these pictures give you an idea of just how amazing the food really is at this event.

Oh yeah - that last photo is the best collection of freakishly small wooden spoons I have ever seen!

Really beautiful photographs, Chef. I mean that.

Given the recent trendiness of culinary celebrity, do you ever worry about the over-fetishization of food? I totally made up that word, but I think you know what I mean.

I'm thinking about coining a specific phrase for food bloggers: "floggers." Does it pop? What do you think?

thanks!

re: over-fetishization of food? never!

and, not sure i'd enjoy being called a professional flogger.

Great shots, but, is that you who needs a manicure?

Hey John-

You must not like soccer. How about a World Cup reference?

Great photos, but the one with the whole pigs roasting is a little disturbing to me. I prefer my meat a little more "anonymous" :)

Oh come on the pig was fabulous. I was drooling just looking at the photo. And the shot of, not one but a set, of tiny spoons.

Great photos and I also loved the tiny wooden spoons.

Last photo - tiny spoons - aren't these really salt scoops.
