Ski Hiver Cuisine
The food we prepare in chalet is just as important as the snow outside and getting it wrong can, quite literally, leave a bad taste in the mouth! Thankfully we have a lot more control over the food than the snow! We prepare the menus with our team before the season starts and if they are not up to the job we start again!
Our team tend to be more mature, coming with life experience, common sense and able to converse with you and your group making you feel at home and in good capable hands. We also ensure they have a passion for cooking and skiing so they can give you advice on where is good to ski or snowboard. We prefer this way rather than employing inexperienced people who are just here to ski and tick chalet work off on their to-do list!
Please be aware that special dietary requirements may be subject to a surcharge. Please check with us first.
Your morning starts off with fresh bread and preserves, cold meats and cheese, boiled eggs or porridge, pure orange juice, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruits, tea and coffee.
After a hard day’s skiing and just before you pop into the hot tub or sauna, enjoy homemade cake, scones or biscuits with your hot chocolate, tea or coffee.
A 4-course meal (3-courses in chalets Barthelemy) is served with fine red and white wine until coffee is served. Our experiences of cooking and travelling to various places in the world has helped us come up with a menu combining many international elements. We also offer an extra course of local cheese on one night during the week.
We are happy to cater for any special diets including vegetarian, vegan, dairy and gluten free, or specific allergies. However, some of these may be subject to a surcharge unless it is due to a medical condition. While we strive to cater for everyone’s likes and dislikes, unless you have an allergy or real hatred for something that can easily be eliminated, we will serve our weekly menu as planned. Some ingredients / products are not available in France so if it is not possible to provide this, you may need to bring it with you for us to use. Check with us if in doubt.
All our produce is fresh and wherever possible sourced from local sellers. We do not employ packet cooks and insist everything is made from scratch where possible.
Children's meals (high tea) can be served at an earlier time of 18:30 to allow them time to eat and shower before the adults dine, leaving them free to watch TV or go to bed. Children's meals are tailored to the parent's advice but no matter what is served, there is always vegetables or salad on the table.
