At Mountain and Tradition, we take chalet cuisine very seriously. Nothing leaves Chef Raphael's kitchens unless it is sure to impress. But don't take our word for it: read our Reviews to see how the dishes we serve continue to bring guests back year after year. The Alpine Lodge, The Alpine Loft, and both chalets combined offer a catering add-on with all-inclusive drinks and end-of-stay cleaning, plus a chalet host.

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.
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.×

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.
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.
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.

At Mountain and Tradition, we take your dietary requirements very seriously and we try to make sure that all our guests are well catered for. While we try to make sure that every dish is sure to impress, please be aware that we do not have the same degree of flexiblity that you might expect in a restaurant. Use this section to get a sense of how we adapt our standard menus to suit the following needs.
Our menus can be adapted to suit those with intolerances and allergies to wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, peanuts and sesame. For allergies please be aware there may still be traces in our dishes as we can not remove these food items from our central kitchen. Soya, fish and shellfish are not used in any of our dishes. If you have a dietary need which you think we should know about, please let us know at the time of booking.
All our meals have vegetarian options available. You can see many of them listed as "alternative options" in our evening meal menus. Our vegetarian dishes present a twist on the French classics, mouth-watering pies and hearty stews. If you're not a vegetarian but just fancy some meat-free nights just let us know, it's not a problem at all.
Our vegetarian menu can be adapted to suit vegans. Let us know your requirements when you book and we will make sure there are plant-based options at every meal sitting of your stay. However, please be aware that our vegan menu is less flexible and less varied than our other menus. Here are some examples of what that looks like in practice...
At breakfast time, plant-based milk and margarine are available to accompany the freshly-baked bread, jams and fresh fruit we have on offer. A vegan-friendly porridge will fill you up ready for the slopes, too. Some of our daily specials are also suitable for vegans: look out for the fruit smoothies, the pineapple plate and the breakfast bruschetta. To drink, wake up with a freshly brewed proper coffee, or a selection of teas (Earl Grey, green, mint & camomile), plus refreshing apple juice on tap.
For afternoon tea, there is a vegan savoury option daily. But do make sure you're the first one back to the chalet on the day our delicious Vegan Chocolate Cake is served! Each evening, our plant-based dinner service comprises three courses. Our starters include soups, tapenade and samosas. For dessert, a range of sorbets and fresh fruits are available.
