Mom or Dad Getaway: 13th Annual Beaver Creek Master Chef Classic with Bon Appétit

Looking for a getaway without the kids?  Want to explore your culinary side? Bon Appétit and Beaver Creek Resort will join forces Jan. 27 – 29, 2011 for the much-anticipated 13th Annual Beaver Creek Master Chef Classic. Highlights of the three-day epicurean affair include an awe-inspiring Master Chef Challenge at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek Village, intimate cooking classes, an après-ski cocktail seminar and a Grand Tasting at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch. With world-class skiing and epicurean festivities in such close proximity, attendees can ski exhilarating vertical runs in the morning and sample delectable cuisine in the evening.
