It begins: A tipster sends this photo of a private jet's worth of big name chefs and restaurateurs arriving in Aspen for this weekend's 2012's Food & Wine Classic. Included: Jacques Pepin, Jonathan Waxman, Tom Colicchio, Danny Meyer, Drew Nieporent, Marcus Samuelsson, Bobby Flay, Ming Tsai, and Giada de Laurentiis.
Eater is in Aspen this weekend as well, hosting a lounge like last year's, bringing you chef interviews and on-the-scene observations. Stay tuned.
