First report from the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen

See more photos at westword.com/slideshow.

As expected, the first night of the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen was a culinary red carpet of celebrity chefs and the giggling, starstruck fans who couldn't stop pawing them. And then there were the blowout parties, like the charity event hosted by Mario Batali, where guests got (among other things) a pair of the star chef's signature orange Crocs. (I snagged a pair for Sheehan to go with his lifesize Batali voodoo doll.) But I had the most fun at the incredibly lamby tapas party with Spanish chef Jose Andres, who stuffed the guts of guests with lamb, lamb and more lamb.

Come back later for more grub from the Classic.
