DIFFERENT DIET – £25 per person per week (for the cook)
Not everybody wants to eat the same food. Sadly our chalets do not have vast kitchens or teams of chefs to cope with cooking a separate meal for everyone every evening, and we can only cope with alternative diets, on any grounds, including health, religion or dieting, by increasing the cook’s hours or lowering the standard of everyone else in the chalet’s food.
Therefore, for people who do not want to eat the same food as everyone else, we offer several solutions. Individual guests can simply avoid whatever they don’t like. Or the whole chalet can agree on menus acceptable to everyone.
If neither of these options works, the chalet cook can come in earlier to prepare alternative food for each guest who wants different meals from the majority of people in the chalet. We charge £25 per week and this goes directly to the cook. It will be added automatically to the invoice of anyone requesting different meals. Please do not expect different food without paying. It isn’t fair on the chef or your fellow guests.
We are unable to purchase gluten-free ingredients in Val d’Isère. Obviously it is possible to avoid eating wheat in cakes and bread, we rarely serve pasta and your chef can thicken sauces with cornflour. If you wish you can bring gluten-free supplies such as rice cakes etc. Should the chef be asked to cook with these gluten-free ingredients and so have to prepare separate meals for anyone requiring gluten-free meals, we would charge the full £25 per week for this Different Diet.
If you have any other dietary requirement, please do discuss this with us well in advance of your holiday. We will do everything we can to prepare suitable meals but there may be a considerable extra charge.
Please note that we cannot provide a kosher environment and we cannot guarantee that our chalets will be nut-free.
