Last week Farmhaus (3257 Ivanhoe Avenue; 314-647-3800 or owner/chef Kevin Willmann and manager Eric Scholle took their crew to the Aspen Food & Wine Classic, where Willmann was selected as one of 2011's Best New Chefs by Food & Wine magazine.

Even though it's a hectic three days of parties, food prep and events, Scholle found time to post about his weekend adventures on Twitter.

Says Scholle: "I have been tweeting for the restaurant (@farmhausstl) and for myself (@Farmhauseric) since we opened over a year ago. I feel like we get to experience a lot of cool and interesting stuff in our business, and I like to share that with other people. The Aspen trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I was pretty excited about, and I wanted to share that excitement and experience with my friends and the rest of St. Louis."

Did you miss his live recounting of the event? We've culled the best of Scholle's Tweets, and he's expanded on the ones that merit more than 140 characters.

"The camaraderie between all the Best New Chefs was inspirational, and it was very fun to get to work and prep with all of them in the kitchen," says Scholle.

"Even though we had a ton of fun, a conservative estimate of the amount of time Kevin and I worked would be around 100 hours," says Scholle. "It takes a long time to prep food for 1,000 people."
