For the 34th year in a row, the FOOD & WINE Classic, the best one of these events in the nation by many accounts, took over the posh city of Aspen. Hundreds of revelers, top chefs, and much media participated in seminars led by legends like Jacques Pepin, wine classes guided by master sommeliers, and parties, official or not, that may have gone till the break of day. There were grand tasting tents, celebrity chef cook-offs, and exclusive picnic lunches that blew everyone's mind. Eater photographers Adam Larkey and Jennifer Olson captured the fun.
