We dispatched Brad Murano, or The Brad as everyone calls him, to cover this year’s Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. The Brad also has a blog.

While you suckers are toughing out the Texas heat, I’m all up in the Aspen Food & Wine Classic – dispatched by Nancy to report on the Texas contingent. Bruno Davaillon (Mansion) and Tim Love (Lonesome Dove, Woodshed, Queenie’s) are both doing demos, but there are a number of other familiar characters hanging out – John Tesar, Kent Rathbun, Michael Martensen & Brian Williams (Cedars Social and Smyth).

I’ll be looking for them. In the meantime, here area some photos from the insanely well-produced Grand Tasting (the first of 5 scheduled during the event) that took place Friday.
