Around Aspen: Edible Aspen

Mary Eshbaugh Hayes
Aspen Times Weekly
At the Edible Aspen party are Patsy Kurkulis and Amiee White Beazley, who is editor of the magazine.

Everyone is talking about small farms and homegrown foods, and even wine and whisky. Aspen even has a magazine, Edible Aspen, dedicated totally to the idea of local food production and farmers’ markets. On June 13, Lisa Houston, publisher of the magazine, held a party at the Ajax Tavern to celebrate this summer’s issue. Jim Butchart, chef at the Tavern, served delectable edibles.

Undercurrent … I have so many photos that I will not write anything this week. This was the week to cut off some of my huge rhubarb in the backyard and to make my annual rhubarb-strawberry pies. I make them and have a piece right away and then save the rest in the freezer so I can have a taste of summer next winter.
