Welcome to my kitchen. I'm thilled that you want to learn about the cuisine we offer here at Mountain and Tradition. I've been lucky enough to travel and work in some of Europe's finest kitchens, including the three gourmet restaurants of the Grand Hotel Kempinski (Geneva) and the double-Michelin Starred Patrick Guilbaud (Dublin). That's where I developed the high standards which we keep in our chalets today. After years producing the finest cuisine, I'm more passionate than ever about using the best seasonal ingredients to produce flavours that the whole group can enjoy.
To create the best dishes we need to source the best ingredients from the most trusted local suppliers, always concious of what's in season. Born and bred in Les Gets, Chef Raphael has an unrivalled network of local suppliers.
When you start with the right ingredients then there's no need to over-complicate them with too many additions. Just cook them correctly and let the natural flavours of the base ingredients come through.
There's a strong tradition in France that the context of the meal matters. The right food for the location, for the venue, for the season. You will find this tradition at the heart of our menus, and it goes without saying that our wines are carefully selected to complement the meals we prepare.
Great food should be for everyone. All our children's meals have the same care and attention in there preparation, and it goes without saying that everything is home-made.
Your catered holiday package with us includes evening meals on 5 nights of a week-long stay. On the other nights, when our chalet hosts are off, we will be happy to make a table reservation at a local restaurant of your choice. If you're not sure where is best, just let us know what kind of dining experience you most enjoy and we will be happy to recommend somewhere for you.
