Chef Mads will take over dinner service at Prospect restaurant. His menus will emphasize his sustainable and no-waste cooking philosophy, and highlight produce from local farms, along with proteins from Colorado ranches.
Accompany Chef Mads on a foraging expedition to learn how to spot not just what’s edible, but what’s wildly delicious. The immersive weekend also includes a private yoga class open to nature, a private dinner at Solstice, and a cocktail class incorporating ingredients from Solage’s edible flower and herb garden.
Meet Chef Mads at a cocktail reception in the Bistro, followed by a dinner prepared by the Danish chef in the atmospheric Dining Room. The next day, Chef Mads leads a Masterclass on how to turn food that would normally go to waste, from vegetable peelings to overripe fruit, into incredible creations that epitomize his no-waste, sustainable cooking style.

Experiences for Intrepid Gourmands
The staff, the room, the food, the many dining options on property, and location are amazing. My expectations were exceeded and the history of the property is so well shown yet in a modern way. Have stayed at the other 5 star options in Aspen, and now have one preferred hotel! Carol H via Trip Advisor Hotel Jerome exceeds expectations

Hotel Jerome My Sustainable Dinner of a Lifetime in Aspen
I fell in love with Aspen over a decade ago, won over not only by its first-rate powder and wide-open sense of space, but also by its phenomenal cultural and dining scenes. It’s a small town, but one with a world-class sense of self. The latest case in point? One of my favorite restaurants, Prospect, has lured Mads Refslund, an initial partner in the groundbreaking Danish restaurant Noma, to be its chef-in-residence through March.
Chileno Bay Seeing the Baja Through the Eyes of a Top Danish Chef
I’ve worked at some incredible places throughout my career, but one reason I love being a part of the Auberge family is their brilliant programming. I’m especially looking forward to hosting Chef Mads Refslund for a special culinary weekend on March 13 to 15. Chef Mads is best known as a co-founder of the groundbreaking Danish restaurant Noma, which went on to receive two Michelin Stars and become the ranked best restaurant in the world by Restaurant Magazine four times.
Mayflower My Day as a Lazy Otter
Shallow, clear, and like a bowl of tranquility, nearly one thousand kettle ponds dot the brilliant terrain of the Northeast. When my family and I first began to plan our trip to Mayflower Inn & Spa, I thought we would spend all of our time enjoying the area’s plentiful hiking trails through meadows and woodlands. But thanks to an insider tip, we ventured off-the-beaten-path to these isolated freshwater pools, where we had the water all to ourselves.
Chileno Bay An Insider’s Guide to Sea Life at Chileno Bay
A favorite among Cabo San Lucas hotels on the beach, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences sits along one of Cabo’s most swimmable beaches, a half-mile stretch of golden sand that leads to some of the calmest, most tranquil waters in the region. The Blue Flag-certified beach is also home to one of Los Cabo’s best snorkeling reefs, where you’ll discover a hidden underwater world brimming with colorful sea life. “You’ll feel like you’re swimming in an aquarium,” says one recent fan.
Hotel Jerome What We’re Thankful For: 130 Years of Hotel Jerome
This Thanksgiving, we’re thankful for the many guests who’ve become a part of the Hotel Jerome family through the years. We’re also thankful for reaching a very special milestone: 130 years since the hotel’s namesake owner Jerome B. Wheeler first opened our doors on Thanksgiving Eve 1889.
Solage Toss a Pallino, Sip on Chardonnay
They say there’s a first time for everything. For me, it was discovering bocce ball, an ancient sport played since the days of the Roman Empire, and a game I learned to play during a family vacation at Solage. We arrived to the outdoor patio under a brilliant scarlet sunset at Solbar, where we ordered a few small bites and cocktails while our sons Jake and Luke expressed their desire for a bit more activity. Fortunately, beyond the rectangular fire pit past the outdoor seating, we noticed two beautifully groomed bocce ball courts.
Chileno Bay A Little Acidic Citrus, a Pop of Chile or a Rich Avocado
A little minerality from the land and the salty, sweet flavor of the Sea of Cortez along with what is in season, organic and sustainable are my favorite ingredients. I like to think that all our raw ingredients have a story.
