Chalet Catering

Eat well

The first rule of hospitality is that nothing upsets a guest more than over-promising and under-delivering. This is key when it comes to cooking in a chalet. However, as all good catered chalet companies know, the quickest way to your heart is through your stomach!

Tasty and homely

The feedback we have received since we started serving guests in 2010, has helped to define our philosophy on food. The food you will be served will not be fine-dining fare but, it will be homely, plentiful, well-executed and very, very tasty. And the ongoing feedback we now receive suggests that we are hitting the spot! We recognise that if you’re going to be doing a lot of exercise on the ski hill each day, you’re going to want food to match.

Inspired variety

That said, this is your well-deserved holiday and a big bowl of pasta pesto isn’t going to cut it (no disrespect to pasta pesto, let us know if you specifically want pasta pesto!) so, in our chalet food, we aim to include lots of variety and draw our inspiration from far and wide. Unlike many catered chalet companies who prescribe a set menu, each of our hosts and chefs develop their own menus – so you’ll get a little bit of their character in your meals too.

Sample menus

Gastronomic treats

We’re often asked if we can share a sample menu from our chalets. Now, most companies and catered chalets in Méribel will claim they serve the best food – and we’re happy to jump on that bandwagon. Our staff don’t just serve up a conveyor belt of prescribed dishes – they meticulously plan a whole week of gastronomic treats, in line with their guests’ desires. This extends from breakfast and afternoon tea, through to a four-course dinner, with canapés.

Mountain ingredients

The sample menu below will give you an idea of what a week with The Chalet Company would taste like! Our hosts will also happily accommodate allergies, intolerances, religious, health or ethical dietary choices, children’s menus – or even just your favourite dinner for a special occasion!

In general, our hosts’ menus for the chalet tend to focus on fresh ingredients, available in the mountains, and nutritious recipes to keep you skiing your best (whilst being warm, filling and delicious enough to help you recover from a long day on the slopes).

Time to ski

Coming home to an amazing afternoon tea, and looking forward to a four-course dinner, means lunch on the mountains can be quick and simple: giving you more ski time. That said, we won’t blame you for indulging in a couple of long, mountain lunches – especially on a snow-day.

The following sample menus should give you an idea of a week’s catering in one of our Méribel chalets. We’ve included our sample vegan menu too (labelled ‘vg’), and you’ll see plenty of vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options.

Le Booze

Le booze

Everybody has a different approach to drinking on a ski holiday; hence The Chalet Company’s alcohol policy has been difficult to define. Restricting each person to half a bottle of wine per night seems frugal, on the other hand, giving guests the keys to the cellar could drink us dry!

And so, with the addition of welcome drinks and bubbly on the first night, we ensure that beer and wine are free-flowing from the minute you kick off your ski boots in the late afternoon, up until the end of dinner.

Our current wines are listed, but we will update them each season. We’re also stocking up our cellar with some special wines that can be bought in addition to your chalet wine.


Belstar Prosecco

Fresh apple and pear aromas with a hint of blossom. Medium-bodied with citrus fruit, creamy mousse and a fresh, clean finish. This sparkling wine is versatile and fun and can be enjoyed with appetizers or as an aperitif.


Chemin des Pins Sauvignon Blanc 2015

This wine is so lip-smackingly fresh and crisp, it just demands another glass. You’ll find all the classic Sauvignon characteristics of lemon, lime and green grass, but there are hints of slightly riper fruit, too.

Domaine de Cibadies Chardonnay 2015

This well-rounded Chardonnay is a nice straw yellow colour. Complex and intense nose with flavours of citrus, peaches, apricots and dried fruits, as well as vanilla and floral notes. The mouth is full, harmonious and well rounded.


Domaine la Berthete 2015

With a brilliant and intense colour, this juicy Côtes-du-Rhône shows all the classic Rhône notes of dark berry fruits and spice, particularly pepper and rosemary.

Rare Vineyards Carignan Vielles Vignes 2015

A delightfully aromatic red, followed through by a pretty palate of dark baked fruit. This wine is very versatile and can be drunk with a range of foods from fish and seafood, pastas, meats and cheeses.

Guest Reviews


Efficient booking process. Staff were professional friendly and cooked up wonderful suppers for kids and adults. Hot tub was a real plus as were hill transfers. Everything we needed for a relaxing break. Dom, family and friends.


Very impressed by Chalet Impala... what a place! There are just so many stunning features – the hot tub, sauna, terrace, huge open-plan lounge and most of the bedrooms (apart from one small one but it was for a single lady). Food was lovely, Aimee & Charlie were charming hosts and, well, we can’t wait to come back next season! Emma.


I love dealing with Phil and the team at the Chalet Company, I organise a large ski group trip every year and they are by far the best company I deal with. Chalet Evergreen is great, fabulous location, hot tub always excellent hosts which you need when looking after big group. They organise as much or as little as you want them to and just make organising the annual ski trip a pleasure rather than a chore. Jenna Kelly.
