DIFFERENT DIET £25 per person per week (for the cook)
Not everybody wants to eat the same food. However, our chalets do not have vast kitchens or teams of chefs to cope with cooking a separate meal for everyone every evening, so for people who do not want to eat the same food as everyone else in the chalet, we offer three 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 work longer hours to prepare alternative food for each guest who wants different meals from the majority of people in the chalet. Our alternative menu is suitable for a vegetarian, a vegan or someone who can’t eat gluten or dairy products, but it is not suitable for any guest or group requiring a combination of any of those. Please call us if this would affect you.
We charge £25 per person per week, and this goes directly to the cook for his or her extra time. It will be added automatically to the invoice of anyone requesting different meals, although we don’t charge if there is just one meal you can’t or won’t eat. Please do not expect different food without paying. It isn’t fair on the chef or your fellow guests and can put both in a difficult situation.
Be assured our alternative menu is not the classic omelette or red pepper stuffed with leftover vegetables. It is almost unheard-of for a YSE guest to say that his or her Different Diet was not worth the £4 per day!
If you have a complicated 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 an extra extra charge if ingredients are particularly expensive or hard to access.
Please note that we cannot provide a Kosher environment, we cannot buy Halal meats, and we cannot guarantee that our chalets will be nut-free.
