This wood-roasted artichoke salad with toasted garlic-red wine vinaigrette and manchego cheese will be featured on the spring menu at Splendido, the restaurant at The Chateau, Beaver Creek. Chef-Owner David Walford recommends tossing the artichokes on a grill with a few oak chips thrown on the coals. Pair it with a Clos du Bois Chardonnay or Willamette Valley Riesling.

Webster’s definition of the word faithfulness is: “Adhering firmly and devotedly, as to a person, cause, or idea; loyal.” Executive Chef and restaurant owner, David Walford is a seasoned craftsman who has spent the last 30 years immersed in the culture of the culinary world, the 20 of them in Beaver Creek, Colo. Now that’s faithfulness. We recently chatted over coffee in his beautiful restaurant with splendid views, thus named, Splendido, at The Chateau, Beaver Creek.
