The A La Carte service is a flexible and affordable option for your ski break. This price does not include food or drink so you are free to tailor-make your holiday meals on a budget that suits you. You will be able to select dishes prepared by a local Savoyard delicatessen and/or choosing food from a comprehensive shopping list, all at the competitive rates you would find in local supermarkets.
Orders are placed three days before arrival and we will do the shopping, stock the food and re-stock mid-week if needed.
Stuck for meal ideas? Here are a few suggestions to get you going:
Warming soups for starters, the French supermarkets have some excellent soups in cartons, ready to heat up in the micro-wave. Our favourites are pumpkin and carrot.
Goat’s cheese salad (make the most of the pre-cut smoky bacon bits, ready grilled garlic croutons, and creamy goats cheese, easy to grill on bread and ready to serve, we’d recommend the balsamic and olive oil dressing for your salads).
Smoked salmon, Savoyard savoury quiches, patés or try the tasty pots of ‘duck rillettes’ to spread on toast as a quick starter.
For mains, duck confit is quick to do in the oven and to save time, you can order the potato gratin dauphinoise from the delicatessen to accompany it. There are also the classic family favourites – bolognese, carbonara, fajitas (making it easy by using the packs with the sauce and then a pot of guacamole and crème fraiche) …
For dessert we have a selection of patisserie fruit tarts, crème caramel and chocolate mousse (do try La Laitière chocolate mousse with fine wafers of chocolate in them).
Enjoy choosing your holiday meals and do make the most of the delicatessen dishes, their gratin dauphinoise is delicious as is the chicken in red wine sauce.
We’ll supply salt, pepper, mixed herbs, olive oil, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, sponges and tea-towels. Please note that the mid-week and end of stay cleaning does not include the dishes or kitchen.
