“Some of my best memories in the last decade have come from Aspen Food & Wine Classic, especially in recent years,” said Celebrity Chef Susie Jimenez. “It is always the most electric and energizing time in Aspen. This year promises to be no different, as we are going big this year with The Sporting Chef Scott and HipLatina! Leading up to Food & Wine I am excited to be tasting new ingredients and putting a special menu together for Chefs’ House, that includes freshly caught, wild Wahoo, Opah, and Big Eye Tuna, along with mussels, oysters, and clams from our friends at Catalina Offshore Products in San Diego. I see Paella and ceviche in our future!”
