Do A Seat at the Table with Inspiring Chef Cortney Burns
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Auberge Resorts Collection brand and introduce inspiring dishes for the property that will weave together my adventures around the world and my knowledge of naturopathy and herbology,” said Cortney Burns, executive chef, Mayflower Inn & Spa, Auberge Resorts Collection. “The history of New England is my culinary muse and I’ve spent decades honing what has become my cooking style: using history as a springboard for creativity while drawing on my own culinary knowledge and nutrient-rich approach to lead the way.” Chef Burns is Mayflower’s third female visiting chef and the first of its Inspiring Chefs program, which delivers transformative dining experiences and world-class cuisine from top-tier talent. Using the destination as her muse, she will allow the bounty of Litchfield farmers to inspire her dishes, intuitively and intentionally positioning peak season ingredients center stage. Her priority is to consciously source from local purveyors with quality of care, good practice and ambitions to heal the land and community—in tune with the Inn’s pillars of wellness and critical to her own well-rounded cooking style.
