  Whether it be for a large group of hungry mountaineers, small groups of friends, families with children or couples wanting a cosy dinner for two, you can be assured of a delicious dinner to look forward to each evening during your stay at Chalet les Criquets.

       My menus include an eclectic mix of dishes inspired by my experiences in Italy and France as well as traditional British classics and of course a little bit of local Swiss influence! Home made sauces ,condiments and preserves are served along side.

     All dietary requirements are taken into consideration along with any particular dislikes.  If preferred I can offer a menu with a choice of three starters, three main courses and three desserts, ( I just ask that the same menu is chosen for the whole group and that you let me know in the morning of the day required)

                 Bon Appetit!
