Cooking with Anton

Delving into the Roaring Fork Valley to find the colorful locals who live here, I found Anton Uhl, a true Renaissance man with a cooking show. When I left his house I drove home with a big smile on my face, thankful to have found yet another incredible person living life to its fullest.

As we move into Fall, we find ourselves cooking more, whether we like it or not. Searching online for delicious recipes to get into the spirit of Thanksgiving, I found Anton Uhl’s show, “Cooking with Anton.” Anton is the son of the famous Gretl Uhl an incredibly woman from Germany who had a restaurant on Ajax Mountain beginning in 1966 and brought the taste of Europe to Aspen. “This is going to be good,” I thought to myself and so I gave him a call.

I parked in Anton’s driveway, under his great willow tree, and he emerged out of his charming little studio to greet me. He was smaller than I had imagined and barefoot, clearly a man one with the earth.

As the interview unfolded Anton’s talents emerged and I discovered that he is a true Renaissance man with abounding talents as an artist, set designer, writer, pianist and chef. When visiting his website, one can feel Anton’s passion for life and his sparkly eyes and handsome good looks keeps you exploring deeper into the pages to find out more. The photographs make me pine for glorious outside Tuscan family dinners and light my spark to have fun in the kitchen.

Thank you Anton!

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
