Hardly roughing it at the Beaver Creek Master Chef Classic

Gayle Hendrix This year I was lucky enough to attend The Master Chef Classic at Beaver Creek, Colorado for the fifth time. So, I can definitely say from experience that it only gets better every year. This was the second year that the Grand Tasting was held at the Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch and it is certainly a step up from the previous years. This year the Classic was revamped. The fat was trimmed, in more ways than one.

By Gayle Hendrix Have you ever had one of those days, or weeks in my case, where you feel as though you are surrounded by incompetence, poor service and bad product? I had one of those weeks recently and I am pleased to announce that it came to a screeching halt at Social. I was finally engulfed by warm, friendly service and enthusiasm for the very exciting food that I was encountering.
