You can now add affordable, quality catering to your self-catered ski holiday.
It’s the age-old dilemma for any ski enthusiast on a budget: bargain hard and hope your budget will stretch to a catered chalet, or take the more affordable option of self-catering and spend your evenings in the kitchen, cooking for a group of hungry skiers. But why should you have to choose between spending all your money or all your time on cooking? Surely, a third option shouldn’t be so hard to find?
Enter Chalet Kitchen. It’s not a private chef, and it’s not a takeaway. This is something totally new.
Currently serving Les Gets, Morzine, Meribel and La Tania, Chalet Kitchen is a chalet catering service which delivers restaurant-quality meals to your door. Every meal is prepared in resort and delivered fresh each day. Their strapline declares the service to be Simple, Affordable, Delicious. Let’s see…
Each morning, Chalet Kitchen staff deliver your evening meal and your breakfast option, if you ordered one. When you get home from the slopes, you simply pop the prepared dish in the oven to heat, then serve. Two courses, garnished, ready before you’re even out of the shower.
The meal packages have been designed to offer value without compromising on quality. What you get, then, is six nights’ catering for just 99 Euros per person. If you choose to add seven breakfasts, it’s still only 129 Euros per person. And discounts are available for parties of eight or more people
Chalet Kitchen is owned and run by experienced chefs and they claim never to let anything leave their kitchen unless it is guaranteed to delight diners. For large-scale catering, this is perhaps a bold claim, but their TripAdvisor reviews would certainly seem to back it up.
This season’s menu includes Alpine classics such as Tartiflette à la Savoyarde, local cured meat and green salad, and Burgundy beef cooked six hours, with mushrooms and smoked bacon, baked polenta with carrots and Parmesan.
No doubt, what Chalet Kitchen offer is not quite the white-linen dining experience you would demand when hiring a private chef. Nor is it quite as cheap as a strictly supermarket-only ski holiday. What it does offer, though, is a very workable happy medium where you don’t have to spend the earth on your holiday, or your holiday in the kitchen.
