Renown Chef Mario Batali Photo by Melanie DuneaRenown Chef Mario Batali Photo by Melanie DuneaWhat makes dining in Aspen so special? According to chef Mario Batali, it’s because of a “kind of hippy, laid back approach to local and serious food.” Known for colorful television appearances, best-selling books, signature Orange Crocs, and a sophisticated coterie of Italian eateries in New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, I caught up with Batali via e-mail before touching down in Aspen to attend the 27th Annual Food & Wine Classic.

Wanted: Aspen Assassin

In a town where parking spaces sell for $500,000, it is not clear why Elinor Dvir thought she could hire a killer in Aspen for $2000.

Especially since the person she allegedly wanted to murder – her ex-husband, Richard Nedlin – is an Aspen prosecutor.

But that is what a court informant and an undercover police office say she tried to do. And that is why last week she was arrested.

Whatever happened between these two former lovebirds is not yet clear. But after it went south, Dvir, an Israeli citizen, found herself spending almost two years in an immigration jail cell until she was released in 2007.
