Introducing a Food & Wine Restaurant in Aspen

Food & Wine Classic in Aspen

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the 30th Anniversary of the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen this June, the newly redesigned St. Regis Resort will debut a blockbuster concept we’re excited to announce called Chefs Club by Food & Wine, a restaurant that will serve seasonal dishes created by F&W Best New Chef alums. The super-talented line-up for the first menu includes George Mendes (2011) of Aldea in New York, Alex Seidel (2010) of Fruition in Denver, Sue Zemanick (2008) of Gautreau's in New Orleans and James Lewis (2011) of Bettola in Birmingham, Alabama. The beverage program will be curated by two of our own stars: Executive Wine Editor Ray Isle will select wine pairings for the dishes and Deputy Editor of Food & Wine Cocktails, Jim Meehan, will create signature drinks.

Even if you can’t hit up the huge festivities this summer, the project will make sure there’s a bit of F&W in Aspen all year round. In November, a new group of BNCs will take on the Fall/Winter menu.

Landmarc chef-owner Marc Murphy grew up in Europe, so it's no surprise that one of his favorite comfort foods—four-cheese spaghetti—is a Genovese spin on macaroni and cheese. “This is a dish my mother used to make a lot,” Murphy says. “She loved this particular dish so much when she had it at a restaurant, that she would keep going back to try and copy it perfectly.”

Better-than-Ballpark Chicken Sausage

Baseball season has officially begun with today's openers including the Phillies vs. the Florida Marlins at Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park and the Colorado Rockies playing the San Francisco Giants on Coors Field in Denver. While ballpark food is improving (see Shake Shack at the Mets' Citi Field), one of the few benefits of watching a game at home is being able to eat whatever you want without stadium mark-ups. These Provençal-style chicken sausages are stuffed with pork fat, garlic and herbs for a superb take on the usual encased meat. They can even be made ahead to prep for Yankee Stadium's first game on Friday.

Nicolas Sarkozy Prefers Poultry

Chicken Fricassee

In an interview with French presidential chef, Bernard Vaussion, the AFP got an inside scoop on the eating habits of Nicolas Sarkozy as well as previous heads of state. Former President Jacques Chirac “loved lamb in all its forms” and foie gras. While Sarkozy has not overturned the absurd rule leftover from Chirac's wife that no women get hired in the kitchens, the health-conscious president has done away with the tradition of serving cheese after meals and prefers "light, balanced meals and poultry to red meat." This Lemony Chicken Fricassee with Shallots and Morels is definitely Sarkozy-friendly. Instead of a rich white stew, F&W's version is simply crisped in butter and finished with lemon for a lighter, seasonal take on the classic dish.

Fried Chicken Battle: David Chang vs. Questlove

In a fried chicken battle for the ages on April 12, Roots drummer and founder of the drumstick-slinging catering company Quest Loves Food, Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson, will face off against Momofuku chef David Chang on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Eater reports that the stakes include a Quest Loves Chicken spread in Chang's artsy food mag Lucky Peach and a spot for his fried chicken on Momofuku’s menu if Questlove wins. If Chang wins for the highbrow fried chicken he serves to groups at Momofuku, ?uest will don a chicken suit during his late-night gig on Fallon. A recent inductee into F&W’s Hungry Crowd, ?uestlove happened to DJ the 2012 Best New Chef party on Tuesday night when we were able to sample his hefty, well-seasoned and fried drumsticks. Though not ones to take sides, let’s just say the supertalented pro Chang isn't necessarily a sure bet. Either way, F&W’s Grace Parisi could show Chang and ?uestlove a thing or two with her Crispy Buttermilk Fried Chicken, a classic Southern-style recipe that she has perfected.
