The Chalet Cuisine

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.

Breakfast:

Your morning starts off with fresh bread and preserves, cold meats and cheese, a hot option (eggs, porridge or pancakes), orange juice, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruits, tea and coffee.

Afternoon Tea:

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.

Dinner

A 4-course meal (3-courses in chalets Barthelemy and Chanterelle) 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 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.

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 6.30pm (18:30) to allow them time to eat and shower before the adults sit down to eat, leaving kids free to watch TV or go to bed. Children's meals are tailored with parent's advice and taste but no matter what is served, there is always vegetables or salad on the table.

  • Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay last week in Chalet Barthelemy. We both had an excellent Christmas. The chalet was as great as we remembered and the food was excellent in both taste and presentation and could not be faulted. Please pass on our feedback and thanks to Mike and Keisha.

  • Everything was perfect, the chalet, location, and communication. Pete and Pat were absolutely fantastic hosts and the food was amazing. (Jeanette Panayi, Jan 2019)
  • We have just returned from a stay in Chalet Hermine our hosts were Cat and Clive. It was our first experience of staying in a catered chalet and it was truly fabulous we had such an amazing time. We had welcome drinks with our hosts on the first evening and Cat asked us all our names, the following morning she greeted us all individually at breakfast considering there was 11 of us I was really impressed!! The food was amazing and perfect after a full day of skiing, especially the lamb tagine this was awesome! Cat and Clive could not do enough to help and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely use this chalet again and would recommend your chalets, the location could not have been better and having such great hosts just made the experience really special.

  • We would like to say our stay with you last week was excellent. The hosts were lovely and really great cooks, they made us feel relaxed and at home. We transferred from Genève with Mountain Rescue who also gave a brilliant service. I would definitely recommend both you and them to friends travelling in the area in the future. In fact, I met an old colleague at Geneva airport and gave her your company name as they ski every year in that area. We wish you all the best with your company for the future and sure it will go well. (Sue Collinge, 4th Feb 2019)
  • We cannot praise your Chalet Chanterelle highly enough. Booking our stay and the changes we requested were made very smoothly. Your staff were welcoming and friendly as was the chalet atmosphere. Warm cosy, clean and comfortable, we were very impressed. The food was great and much appreciated after a long drive. The Chalet location is ideal and free parking too. Having enjoyed our stay so much we will most definitely be back. We can hand on heart highly recommend Chalet Chanterelle. Thanks Guys, in particular thanks to Chris who is a star.
