Local Chefs Ready To Throw Down At Food And Wine And Heritage Fire

Foodies at two culinary festivals this weekend, Heritage Fire and Food and Wine, can sample donuts from Glenwood Springs' Sweet Coloradough and BBQ sliders from Aspen's Hickory House right alongside fare from some of the nation’s best-known chefs.


Home Team BBQ is one of several local restaurants pulling double duty at both festivals this weekend.


Executive chef Kyle Wilkins spoke in his kitchen after a recent lunch rush. He says it’s a busy weekend, but it’s worth it.


“This is what we wait for. You’re with a great group of chefs, it’s fun and we really look forward to this every year,” he said.

Wilkins says Home Team will serve chicken livers at Food and Wine, and cook a whole hog at Heritage Fire, a process that takes over 12 hours.
