From June 17 to June 19, some of the world’s most notable culinary leaders, wine and spirits experts, and celebrity chefs took part in The FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen 2022. During the three-day experience, attendees were able to choose from numerous cooking demonstrations, beverage seminars, tastings, and other exclusive events, some of which took place in the most stunning outdoor settings. 

How to Watch

Watch the Top Chef Season 21 premiere on Wednesday, March 20 at 9/8c on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

Of course, several alums of Bravo’s Top Chef were there to show off their skills and enjoy the events. In a June 20 Instagram post, Season 15 runner-up Adrienne Cheatham wrote that after cooking “for 300,” she was “still floating (and recovering) from this epic weekend.” In a separate post, Season 11 runner-up Nina Compton noted it was “a fun weekend with special people.”

Season 19 winner Buddha Lo also reflected on the special weekend in a heartfelt Instagram post. “After many years of watching Top Chef I have finally lived out the prized moment of ‘an appearance in [The FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen]’ (in Padma [Lakshmi]’s voice),” he wrote. “I had such a great weekend meeting new people, partying, eating and obviously cooking at one of the most breathtaking places in the world (literally that latitude is something else). One thing I will never forget at my time in Aspen is being surrounded by people who want nothing but the absolute best for you. The amount of support, words of advice and encouragement that I got, it will be something that I won’t forget for a very long time.”

Other Top Chef alums in attendance included Brooke Williamson, Byron GomezClaudette Zepeda, Kwame Onwuachi, Shirley ChungShota NakajimaStephanie Izard, and Tiffany Derry.
