Head Chef Raphael

Welcome to my kitchen. I'm thrilled 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.

The 4 Pillars of our Catering Ethos

The Finest Produce

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.

Respecting the Ingredients

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.

A Matter of Context

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.

For Everybody

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.

How Main Course Options Work?

For our evening meal, we offer a main course as well as an alternative option - one including meat, and the other vegetarian.

If you are vegetarian or vegan please just let us know before your holiday and we'll make sure we prepare the correct option for you. You can also find out more about dietary requirements here.

Please note: unless we hear otherwise, we generally prepare the main course as described above for everyone - as part of a flexitarian diet (which consists of four main courses including meat and one vegetarian). You can choose the alternative option, although it's not possible to pick once sitting at the table.

Fancy some more meat-free nights? More choice for you!

Many people are now opting to enjoy some meat-free nights during their stay. Sometimes with environmental concerns, sometimes for health reasons, and sometimes just for the variety and getting to enjoy new and different dishes. Whatever your motivation, you are very welcome to have the main course of the day some nights and the alternative option on others.

If it's possible to let us know your choices before your holiday that would be very much appreciated. As part of our drive to reduce our carbon footprint and protect the environment we are very conscious to reduce food waste as much as possible. Knowing your choices before your holiday really helps us there. You can find out more about our drive to EcoLabel accreditation for environmental protection here.

For Children:

Normally we prepare the children's option for those aged 12 and below, and the adults option for those aged 13 and above. If your children would rather have the other option though that's no problem at all. Please just let us know before your holiday. Thank you.
