Crop To Cuisine gives you the exclusive sneak peak into this years Aspen Food & Wine Classic. The festival has come to be a destination for some of the worlds most recognized celebrity chefs. And while these people have paved the way for a culture of food, we are drawing attention towards those in the industry that are working towards sustainable food & farming practices. You don't want to miss this episode of Crop To Cuisine. We hear from Chef Michel Nischan, a good friend of the late Paul Newman and the founder of the Wholesome Wave Foundation. We also speak with Peter Jacobsen. Peter has been a farmer in California's Napa Valley for over 28 years, and has worked closely with some of the worlds greatest chefs, including Thomas Keller (The French Laundry) and Michael Chiarello (Restaurant Bottega). Our guests also include a team of Colorado Chefs and Brewers, offering food, wine and beer pairings at the Aspen event, using almost entirely locally and sustainably grown products.
