Chefs from across the country descended on Aspen over the weekend for the 34th annual Food & Wine Classic, an event that also draws Colorado's moneyed foodies to linger over wine and high-end nibbles in a warren of tents set up in Wagner Park. Linnea Covington made the winding drive up the mountain to get in on the fun, snapping pics of visiting chefs and their food. For more photos, see our complete slideshow.
