Do A Seat at the Table with Inspiring Chef Cortney Burns

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.

Do Auberge ArtSalon "Too Tired to Sleep"

It is often said that artists hold up a mirror to society. If this is the case, then their art serves as a prism through which we can view the times we live in, often from an entirely new perspective. In the Auberge ArtSalon series, six emerging artists will turn their own unique gaze on six iconic Auberge retreats to create art installations that reflect each property’s individual character, setting, heritage, and place in the world today

Do Celerie Kemble on her design vision for the Mayflower Inn and Spa

Kemble approached the redesign to Mayflower’s historic site with “great trepidation, respect and a sense of enthusiasm.” More than a hotel, she says the Mayflower Inn & Spa feels like someone’s home, with a sense of gracious hosting, comfort and personality. The idea was a refresh, not a demolition.. She picked out the things that were worth preserving, that had aged well and brought a sense of authenticity to the site, including mahogany four-poster beds and lamps, refectory tables, chinoiserie chairs, a papier-mache chinoiserie coffee table and game tables. She mixed in Scandinavian and colonial American design influences with sisal carpets, Turkish rugs, hand-crafted ceramics, wicker, as well as textiles from Schumacher, Sister Parish, and Penny Morrison.

Learn Learn How to Heal Your Body with Reiki

I’ve been studying Reiki for 26 years when my path to the healing art began in 1990 when my hands started talking to me. The message was clear: they wanted to be used as instruments for change. Now as a Reiki Master in the Traditional Usui System, my technique includes channeling healing energy to you through my hands, which activates the natural healing processes of your body to restore your physical and emotional well-being, shifting your perspective on life and allowing space for you embrace self-responsibility to operate from a place of love instead of fear.
