Our Food

At Fish&Pips we are fanatical about food and are thrilled to have won The Times Chalet Chef 2010. Our team has a wealth of experience and some might say a rather unhealthy passion for food!

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
