This past weekend at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic, celebrities and chefs mingled, cooked, and—most importantly—ate and drank!

According to People, Chef Duff Goldman created a Godiva chocolate lava cake, Ming Tsai made sushi, and Top Chef winner Kristen Kish divulged that she eats chicken tenders and French fries sometimes three times a week.

The attendees were tearing up social media at the event with plenty of Instagrams and Vines throughout the weekend. Chefs taking Instagram selfies included Richard Blais, Rick Bayless, and Hugh Acheson and Marcus Samuelsson blew up Vine with his dance moves at the Last Bite dessert party that Gail Simmons and Johnny Iuzzini hosted. Not to be outdone, Mario Batali added his own video to Vine when he captured fellow chef Jose Andres in the kitchen making morels. Celebrity Allison Janney even made her own cooking debut when she got to be Chef Andrew Zimmern’s sous chef at the final cook off, helping him make Rabbit Mixed Grill with a Merci Jacques Pepin soufflé.

Sounds like a weekend you would definitely want to loosen your belt for…
