Dining with The World’s Best Chef

Chef Mads Refslund, one of the initial partners of the groundbreaking Danish restaurant Noma, delivered an immersive behind-the-scenes look into the world of foraging and no-waste cuisine at five award-winning Auberge properties. Guests were invited to scuba dive off the coast of La Paz, Mexico in search of seaweed, learn how to spot and harvest edible wild plants deep in the forests of Connecticut, and take master classes and workshops on how to use local, foraged ingredients in a sustainable, waste-free fashion. Refslund, one of the original proponents of cooking with food scraps, also hosted one-of-a-kind dinners, cocktail receptions and private meals showcasing how some of the most wasted, neglected ingredients can yield the most extraordinary results.
