Great Food – for adults and children

We pride ourselves on providing seriously good food for both children and adults.The children’s food is all home-made – a healthy mix of carbohydrates, fresh vegetables and proteins plus delicious deserts. Cooking for the children is one of the hardest things we do – and it is important that we get it right and make sure all our guests’ children are well fed whilst staying with us. We have even had successes where parents have failed – eating cabbage (!), fish (!) and other exotic things!

What sets us apart from other chalets is the quality of our meals.

Nick, our chef, has been cooking with us for over 20 years and many people say that apart from the great skiing and excellent accommodation it is the food that Nick produces that persuades them to come back year after year.

For the adult guests we create a new menu every season, both winter and summer. In winter we provide a 4-course meal including wine and coffee. In addition to firm favourites such as Tartiflette with home-made chili and ginger jam, we always try to make the food exciting, tasty and sometimes, just a little different!  Summer menus tend to be lighter yet still refreshingly different and tasty. We can cater for all dietary requirement from vegetarian, no red meat or dairy – just let us know in advance

In preparation for the winter Nick always lays down a good supply of home made pickles and chutneys together with home-made jams from the summer fruits growing wild on the mountain.

Our Recipes for Charity

13 years ago Nick produced his own recipe book based on over 150 recipes he had cooked during the previous 8 years. Offering it to guests as a e-mail document and asking for donations to our supported charity “A Chacun son Everest”  –  we raised 330€. This charity supports children fighting and recovering from cancer and more recently women recovering from breast cancer.  Whilst based in Chamonix, the charity helps children and women from all over France.

In 2010/11 and in subsequent years, rather than offering the recipe book, as all of the menu was new (as it is every season) we offered specific recipes in return for a donation to the charity “A chacun son Everest”.

As a result of our guests’ support, kindness and, I guess, appreciation of the food (!) we have raised almost 3,000€ – donations coming in small coins or sometimes notes.  Thank you to all our guests for their contributions.
