Chef Chris Lee's Fiji Dinner at the Food & Wine Classic

Course by Course: A Luxurious Dinner at the Aspen Classic

The third course was my favorite! It was Scottish salmon with English peas, fava beans, and tarragon crème fraîche sauce. The pairing was a bit off: it was served alongside a red, the Justin 2008 Savant. But the salmon was cooked to perfection. It was delicate and flaky, and the sauce melted in your mouth.

Although the 2011 Food & Wine Classic has come and gone, I'm still savoring all the delicious memories. One thing that stands out in my mind is the special dinner we attended on Friday evening at the recently opened rustic-chic Casa Tua in Aspen. The event was hosted by Fiji Water and featured the cuisine of chef Christopher Lee. Here's a look at the extravagant six-course meal.
