Chef Tim Love's Lunch at the Food & Wine Classic

Chef Tim Love Loves His Animals

After falling in love with his Texas accent and cowboyish ways on the first episode of Top Chef Masters, I was more than happy to RSVP to a special luncheon hosted by chef Tim Love at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Love spent the entire night before the lunch slow-roasting three whole animals — goat, lamb, and venison — over a mesquite wood grill. He applied a different technique and application to each one. Love filled the lamb with mirepoix and wrapped the venison in bacon. He made a trio of dishes that paired with Belgium beers. Marc Stroobandt, a master beer sommelier, was on hand to teach guests how to properly pour the brews — creating a nice heady foam is a must! Love's trio included a goat crepinette with braised lentils, lamb tacos with Texas salsas, and venison sliders with a aioli. To take a better look at the lunch,
