Ah Haa: Food Mecca For The Holiday Season (and Into The New Year)!

The holiday season is all about bringing family and friends together, in part to share festive meals. Whether it is a traditional feast or a simple gathering of your closest loved ones, food is often the star of the show. After all: “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf.

On that note, below is some food for thought from Telluride’s Ahh Haa School for the Arts, a fabulous food mecca.

Go here for more about Ah Haa (back to 2009).

Plan for the holidays now!

Need post-Christmas dinner reservations for a group of 10? Ah Haa is your place for special holiday gatherings with friends and family. Six dates are available for Chef’s Table Dinners this holiday season and they feature talented chefs and unique tasting menus.

Ah Haa is also bringing home up-and-coming chef Brendan Kelley for a very special NYE Launchpad Dinner, complete with a viewing of the Telski Torchlight Parade from the Ah Haa sky deck. Purchase your seats now.

And, in January, Michelin-star Chef Iliana Regan returns for four weeks during which time she will teach a series of 8 classes on Sundays and Mondays, as well as offer intimate, multi-course pop-up dinners in the Ah Haa kitchen on Fridays and Saturdays. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to be in the classroom with this talented chef! All of Iliana’s classes and dinners are listed together on the Ah Haa website and available for booking.
