Today, the 30th Food & Wine Classic in Aspen kicks off with a full day of appetizing events. The action-packed weekend includes a 5K charity run led by Bobby Flay, a late night dessert bash hosted by Gail Simmons and a 30th anniversary party with music by Elvis Costello. In between, attendees can break for comfort food like Marcus Samuelsson's fried chicken, which he will demo Friday afternoon. If you aren't at the Classic but are craving crispy fried chicken, we suggest Samuelsson's Coconut Chicken with Pickled Pepper Collards. Soaked in buttermilk, coconut milk and garlic, the chicken takes on terrific, rich flavor before being coated with panko bread crumbs and fried.

The Week in Food looks at noteworthy food or food-related inventions, announcements and other "firsts" throughout history.

As one of the most American of foods, the plebeian hot dog is a summer entertaining staple, both for the President and First Lady and even for British royalty: On June 11, 1939, England's King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (the current Queen Elizabeth’s mother) were served their first American hot dogs during a six-day visit to the United States.

Give Broccoli a Chance

Why does broccoli get cast as the bad guy? The green vegetable has arrived at the center of the America's debate about health care, the New York Times reports, with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia asking whether, if the government can oblige citizens to purchase health care, it might also require them to buy broccoli. The implication is that broccoli doesn't taste good—but that's easily disproven by Sesame-Coated Chicken with Broccoli. The F&W Test Kitchen's superfast recipe puts perfectly crisp-tender broccoli next to crunchy chicken in a spicy ginger-garlic sauce.

Especially handy for summer, cans are not only easier to pack, stack and transport, but they also preserve beer better than bottles. Oskar Blues' Dale Katechis and Sixpoint's Shane Welch swear by canned beers >
