La Vieille Forge

Delicious cuisine, flexible catering

If you'd like a catered service we can offer this in house or suggest a good local chef to offer just evenings, meals delivery or fully catered. We try our hardest to buy local or French products (except tea!) and to use free range eggs, chicken and pork under the 'Lable Rouge' system . We are also happy to offer a group vegetarian or vegan catering (but usually for the whole chalet) We re-cycle our food packaging. Our cuisine is inspired with favourites from France and the mountain environment we live in and always delicious and stylishly presented. See the picture Gallery for pics of our cuisine (not bought photo's!)

"...for 20 years Huski has ruled this roost ....The owners come from food orientated backgrounds, and used to do all the cooking themselves. Now they've brought in their own chefs... Try the honey and mustard duck with sage-infused cannellini beans and the wonderfully-named dessert Mont Blanc Mess...'"

Cheese presentation

We'll tell you a good story which explains the history of the cheese you're eating, with interesting anecdotes, a perfect way to finish dinner and of course enjoy just a little more more wine...!
Epoisse - a rich creamy and marvellously strong cheese from Burgundy
Beaufort - "the Champagne of cheeses", a superb local cheese made from cows grazing on high mountain pastures
Chaource - another cheese from Burgundy, steeped in Marc de Bourgnon, deliciously pale and creamy
Tomme de Savoie - local, lots of different varieties, sharp and full flavoured, alpine cheddar!
Reblochon - made in the Aravis region, made from the creamier second milking

Chefs!

Catered service

If you book a catered service it generally includes a hearty continental breakfast plus a hot option (except on staff day off when breakfast is a Continental breakfast with yoghurt, cereals and fruit) and after ski tea left out with homemade goodies.
Our gourmet evening catering is on 5 nights (one night could be Savoyarde specialities if you wish); we begin with a house aperro and canapes and then provide a stylish 4 course evening meal with a starter, main (inc wine) pudding and cheese presentation. On two nights you will eat out and we can advise to the many excellent local restaurants. 

Organic, vegetarians, vegan or gluten free

We're passionate about local food and organic or small farm reared products. We are happy to cater for vegetarian, vegan and food allergies and will adapt our menu's to suit but cannot guarantee an allergy free environment. If you would like to experience a week of organic cooking please let us know. A supplement will apply and we can only cater the whole chalet on this basis.
