Aarón Sánchez, Telluride Wine Festival 2012

I had the honor of a quick photo op with renowned Chef Aarón Sánchez this past weekend.   

The co-star of Food Network's hit series', Heat Seekers and Chopped, Aarón is the chef/owner of Centrico Restaurant and Tacombi, located in New York City, as well as Mestizo Restaurant, located in Kansas City. Aarón's passion, commitment and skills
have placed him among the country's leading contemporary Latin Chefs.

He is the author of "Simple Food, Big Flavor: Unforgettable Mexican-Inspired
Recipes from My Kitchen to Yours" and "La Comida del Barrio: Latin-American
Cooking in the U.S.A."

I was taking a tour of Telluride Colorado, during the Annual Wine Festival when my son Dustin spotted Aarón doing some sight seeing and shopping.  Honestly, I had walked right past him a few seconds earlier without making the connection.

I'm generally reluctant to bother celebrities when they are trying to enjoy a day without fans pouring all over them. However, I always look back with disappointment because I didn't have the gumption to stalk the poor celebrity and get photo evidence of the moment.   So, this time I did the unthinkable and ran across the street like a silly school girl, to capture a moment on film with Aarón. 

When I asked if he wouldn't mind taking a photo, Aarón was exceptionally kind and accommodating although, he didn't have any place to hide as I had him cornered in a T-Shirt store. 

Thank you Aarón for taking time from your day to snap a quick photo with me!!
