Rocky Mountain Meals

Nowadays, Aspen is famous for being a swanky winter hangout, but it was built by miners, ranchers and even hippies. Those folks are still here, and they eat on Hopkins Avenue. A snowball's throw from the slopes, rodeo rider turned chef Kathleen Crook serves Chuck a massive 30-ounce steak with a big rib-bone handle called the Tomahawk. At Ute City, so named for the original Ute Indians of the region, chef Rob McLanahan shows Chuck how to grill duck a la plancha. After stopping in at Sarah Helsley's Cheese Shop, Chuck indulges in fondue, the ultimate post-ski meal. Chuck finds dessert at Creperie du Village, a cozy eatery where chef Jason DeBacker makes a sweet crepe with a jaw-breaking German name: the Schokoladepalatschinke. Try saying that with your mouth full.
