Our ethos: chalet food fit for foodies!
We’re a little bit obsessed by food – the ingredients, the creations, the flavours, the textures…
“At Ski Talini we believe that a catered chalet holiday can be a gastronomic experience, which is why each chalet has its own chef – qualified and experienced in fine dining.” – Daisy, Director Ski Talini
Our chefs visit the local market and restaurant suppliers each week to shop for the very best ingredients so that they can prepare outstanding 4-course meals in the evenings, as well as home-baked treats at tea-time and hearty breakfast options. They really love going to town and impressing our customers with their creative flair but can equally tone it down and produce fewer frills should your party prefer!
But we’re also very flexible. If you’re a bit health-conscious or prefer something lighter or simpler than restaurant food every night, then do let us know. Your chef will give you a call at a convenient time before your arrival and you can have a chat about your likes, dislikes and dietary requirements so that we can be well-prepared with a menu that suits. Likewise if your group have any allergies or intolerances then it’s important to let us know in advance so that we can be well equipped to cater for everyone.
Travelling with children? Fantastic! We’ve a repertoire of nutritious and scrummy suppers under our chefs’ hats so that your littlies will be well-nourished during the week. Again, don’t hesitate to let us know about any foods that will have them running screaming from the table or that will have their eyes light up with greedy glee! We’ll aim to have at least 3 of their 5-a-day down them during their chalet meals and you can raid the fruit bowl at any time of day.
A typical day in your chalet…
Cup of tea in bed? Just say the word! Breakfast follows with something for everyone: a hearty bowl of porridge, homemade muesli, smoothies, yogurt and fruit. Or indulge in a full English as you’ll be skiing it off?
Return to the chalet for fresh baguettes, butter and jam as well as a daily home-baked treat.
Relax with your feet up whilst the chef rustles up the daily aperitif and canapés, then take a seat at the candlelit table for four delicious courses including a selection of local cheeses and homemade chutney. Afterwards snuggle back to the fire for a digestif and a game of cards, curl up on a sofa with a film or discover the atmospheric bars of St Martin.
