Our Food

We are fanatical about food.

Starting in 2006, Fish&Pips has evolved into the food lead company it is today.    With the help of some fantastic chefs over the last few years the gastro side of our holidays has strengthened hugely and as a team, and we continuously strive to be at the forefront.  Following on from the success of the first Fish&Pips cookbook and being awarded The Times Chalet Chef Award way back when in 2010, we have since published our second cookbook: The Chalet Cook Book.  This is in association with our Surrey based interest, The Abinger Cookery School. Our relationship with esteemed Michelin Star chef and London restaurant owner, Adam Byatt, puts us at the forefront of chalet cookery.  This ever-evolving relationship is invaluable, from his input during our training and time spent endorsing our menus, to our exciting new ventures such as A Taste of Trinity in Chalet Cerf Rouge.

In our eyes a good skiing holiday isn’t complete without good food, which is why we strive to provide some of the best dining experiences the Alps has to offer by carefully hand-picking restaurant chefs and allowing them free rein when it comes to menus allowing them to show their natural talent. At the same time we are extremely flexible in adapting to your needs. Your chef will call you in advance to go through finer details of likes, dislikes, special requests, allergies and children’s food. As much as some might love fine-dining every night we are also aware that eating 4 courses every night (especially after a big lunch!) might not be everybody’s cup of tea. We will happily provide lighter, more simple, 2 or 3 course meals for you. Don’t worry, we won’t be offended just ask. We provide the whole chalet service when it comes to food:

  • A full breakfast spread with daily specials
  • Afternoon tea
  • Homemade children’s tea
  • 5 course evening meal – canapés, starter, main, pudding and cheese

 

‘Delicious Recipes at Height and at Home’

The Abinger Cookery School’s THE CHALET COOK BOOK in association with Fish & Pips is now available to order. Fish & Pips and our sister company the Abinger Cookery School both come from a team of culinary enthusiasts, with the desire to extend this passion to their customers through the work and lifestyle they love. Our ethos has always been to share our love and experience of food with our guests, students and everyone we encounter along the way. With the F&P and the Abinger’s foodie credentials, it’s not surprising that a fair few recipes have stood the test of popularity and altitude.The Chalet Cook Book has been carefully compiled from a collection of absolute favourites. There’s something for everyone, from the very basics to dinner party dining to impress. And it looks very pretty too!. For pre-orders please email emma@fishandpips.co.uk. The book will also be available to purchase in resort and from the Abinger Cookery School.
