Season 2016/7 – recipes and this year’s donation to “A Chacun Son Everest”

Ahh, well the season finally draws to an end. Once again we have had a wonderful time – great guests, great children, some awesome skiing and some great nights.
I have written up the recipes I have been cooking and our guests have kindly donated in total this year over 220€ for a copy of the recipes. This will be donated, as ever, to our preferred charity #achacunsoneverest – a charity, based in Chamonix, helping children and young adults recovering from cancer – thank you all so much. Over the last 10 years we have donated over 3,000€ to this charity.
The photo montage below was made by a guest. She took photos of nearly every meal I made this year – it gives you a (visual) flavour of what was laid on the table each night for the last 4 months! Thank you Debbie for this.

Just a sampling of the yummy dinners enjoyed at 360 Sun and Ski chalet in Les Carroz last week www.360sunandski.comFine cuisine from Chef Nick Stephens including cauliflower and apple soup, salad d'hiver, tiramisu, coq au vin, poached pears in red wine syrup with chocolate sauce, crab toasting, tartiflette (a must in this region), baileys ice cream with hazelnut praline, filled potato, Toulouse sausage with roasted peppers, raspberry and white chocolate mousse, salade savoyarde, pork loin stuffed with figs and apricots, Thai prawn cakes with dipping sauce, sticky beery chicken, panna cotta with soured cherries, and of course the local cheese course. Love Tomme and Comte cheeses. Even the Brie tasted better! Hungry yet?

Big snow here – and due to fall all week.
And just so you can see (or not as the case may be due to too much snow) here is a link to the web cams!

28th October 2012 – first snow has arrived!

The first real snow of the winter fell last night, down to 800m  – well below the level of the resort.  In the village we had about 10 cm.  Lots more high up on the slopes.  Whilst the snow in the town will not last, high up the snow will make a good base for the winter.

We have 2 suites currently available for Xmas week for those wanting to grab the first week of what is clearly going to be a great season.

29th December 2011

The first 2 weeks of the season are nearly over – a great start with excellent snowy conditions.

25th November 2011 – Snow is on the way – OFFICIAL!!

In its “mountain” forecast, Météo France have announced, with a rather high confidence index, “heavy snow on Monday and Tuesday.” Meanwhile, Yan Giezendanner (amateur forecaster from Chamonix) predicts a couple of weeks (maybe even three weeks) of snowy weather, with the rain-snow altitude shifting between the altitude of Chambéry (ie 271m) and 1500 metres.

14th September 2011 – Snow Forecast!

According to local lore, with the glut of autumn berries now on the trees and bushes it means we are going to have an excellent winter for snow!  OK watch this space and see if the locals know anything!
