Whichever chalet you choose for your holiday you will find that the standard of cuisine is consistently high.
Breakfast every day will consist of a selection of cereals, porridge or muesli with yogurts and fresh French bread with butter and preserves. To drink we have a selection of teas, fruit juice and French coffee. We offer boiled eggs to guests not wanting the cooked breakfast of bacon and fried eggs with Heinz beans or hash browns and mushrooms or tomatoes which is served every day apart from Sunday when we serve croissants and the chalet hosts day off (normally Wednesday).
For afternoon tea (every day including the chalet hosts day off) is the most informal meal of the day, help yourself to fresh bread, butter and jams, biscuits and home made cake or scones, either eaten at the table or relaxing beside the fire.
New for this season: pre-dinner canapes and aperitifs will be served in the lounge.
For Dinner, one of the highlights of the day, chalet hosts use fresh seasonal produce, typical examples of the meals you will enjoy on a Ski Beat holiday are:- dinner menu.
Chalet Hosts cook a 3-course evening meal. On the final evening of your holiday, your chalet host will produce a 4-course evening meal including a local Cheese board and port.
The evening meal is served at 8pm. See below for details about children's dinner.
Please note that in all of our chalets, your hosts will eat dinner with guests.
To complement your meal we serve free and unlimited good quality Red and White wines during the course of dinner. After dinner fresh ground coffee or decaffeinated coffee as well as tea are served in the lounge. Please click on Ski Beat chalet wines to see the selection we offer. Additionally, Ski Beat has teamed up with its wine supplier Le Cellier to offer a wine delivery service giving you a greater selection of wine while on holiday. If you would like to order additional wine you can do so direct with Le Cellier. (Minimum order 6 bottles & orders must be placed at least 2 weeks prior to arrival. Free delivery to your chalet. No discount is given if you do not drink the chalet wine)
Our chalet hosts are used to adapting the menu to accomodate your food preferences. If you do have a specific dietary need (eg Vegetarian or Coeliac) or an allergy, please let the office know at least 10 days prior to your holiday start date. Many food preferences can be dealt with on arrival. Please note that French alpine supermarkets do not have the same range as British supermarkets, therefore if you have very strict dietary needs it is helpful if you can bring a few items.
Children aged 11 and under will be served High Tea at around 6pm. This is provided at no extra cost and ensures that your child's normal routine is not disturbed: soft drinks or milk are served with the meal. It also ensures that adults can enjoy their evening meal, which is served at 8pm. If you have booked a whole chalet then you can eat together - please speak to your chalet hosts on arrival.
Ski Beat would be delighted to help with the celebrations for any special occasion. Birthdays and anniversaries can be made even more memorable with a special cake and a glass of bubbly - please just speak to your chalet host about this on arrival.
An alpine chalet is a wonderful place to spend the festive season. We provide Christmas trees and decorations. On the day itself, you can look forward to aperitifs, turkey with all the trimmings, flaming Christmas pudding, mince pies, and of course Christmas crackers.
For New Year most of our resorts will have torch lit descents, fireworks and other celebrations. Alternatively, you could just enjoy New Year's Eve dinner in your chalet with a glass or two of fizz.
Several years ago we introduced menu guides within our chalets, allowing the chalet hosts to choose from a selection of suggested recipes from Ski Beat's own recipe book. This has proved to be very successful resulting in the vast majority of our guests classifying chalet meals as excellent in their holiday questionnaires. We believe this improvement was due to a good effort on behalf of our resort staff and the introduction of the Ski Beat Menu Plans. These were designed by Fiona Williams, one of our overseas Directors, who has recently published her second cookery book called "Cooking for Friends to Enjoy Yourself". This book is published by Foulsham and is available at most good book stores (ISBN: 0572030169).
