This food and wine festival is one of the kinds!
Food and Wine magazine hosts Food and Wine Classic in beautiful Aspen downtown, it showcased over 180 of fine food, wine, liquor, and luxury items presented by producers/makers for three days; this year was June 15th to 17th. Over 4000 people came to visit and enjoy all the fine foods and drinks over three day weekend.
Many celebrity chefs came for special lectures, tasting session, and talk show though out the weekend , but there was no program related to Sake, so maybe we can host one tasting and lecture session next year?!?! The TV show “TOP Chef” chefs served their special dishes, too.
We are able to introduce our sake to first time sake drinker to experienced ones. Very interesting to interact with all kinds of people with different sake knowledge and show how we care for our products.
The Food and Wine magazine hosts’ similar festival in few cities throughout the United States, but Aspen one is its flagship. The ticket price was around $1500!! I personally though it is very expensive, but it maybe not… because I never saw Aspen airport so crowed with private jet!!
We hope to see you all out there again next year!!
