Calling all foodies! Here is your chance to talk food and wine with one of North America’s leading chefs while you walk and hike each day in the unparalleled alpine beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Walk on wide open ridges and mountain tops before flying back to a luxurious lodge to savour time at the spa, or relax around the fireplace with new friends. In the evenings John will lead discussions that will awaken your taste buds to explore and discover, and you will enjoy dining on a Chef John Ash inspired five-star meal.
John was voted “Cooking School Teacher of the Year” by the International Association of Culinary Professionals and is an
adjunct instructor at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone
in the Napa Valley. He is just about to release his fourth cook book, Culinary Birds, and is looking forward to sharing the stories he has collected over the years. As well as being a gifted and award winning author, Ash co-hosted a radio show for over 26 years and was the host of two TV shows on The Food Network.
This trip is a must for anyone who loves good food and conversation in the most spectacular mountain environment. Join Chef Ash and CMH Summer Adventures for a unique and incredible vacation!
Our annual dinner at Dry Creek Peach is definitely a yearly highlight – this is our eighth year in the orchard!
