How We Discover Food & Drink to Serve in our Chalets
Posted by Fraser EwartWhite
How Powder White Ltd selects what food & drink to serve in our Catered Properties
Every year, the staff at Powder White participates in helping shape the menu in our catered properties. From appetizers to main courses and fine wine, all staff are eager to try, taste and judge food and drink in order to discover the best cuisine to serve in our independently operated chalets. Learn how we choose what food & drink to serve below and view our mini Food & Drink Gallery.
Just a quick recap for the un-initiated, a catered ski holiday property provides Breakfast, Afternoon Tea, 3 Course Dinner, housekeeping and much more allowing you more time to enjoy your holiday rather than get embroiled in everyday chores. Learn more about what you get in a catered chalet here
Drink / Wines
The senior directors at Powder White take charge of sourcing wines from around the world using their past experience in the hospitality industry to select the finest tipple. Then we shortlist our favourite wines and have a tasting session and vote on which selection makes the cut for the forthcoming ski season.
When you are staying with Powder White, you can choose from a range of wines to enjoy in the evenings or with dinner or upgrade to our premium wines selection to enhance your stay with us. Simply add your wine selection to your booking by clicking the ‘Extras’ button or ask a member of staff by phone or in resort.
All staff contributes to helping develop the menus in our catered properties by contributing ideas, bringing in homemade recipes to tasting the food prepared by potential cooks or chalet hosts applying to work with Powder White. We undergo this procedure not only to enjoy the treats, but to ensure we have a quality and consistent menu to please most palettes.
While our chalet hosts are not professional cooks, they are well seasoned in providing good hearty food and often have been trained by one of the many cooking schools we work with. So you won’t get Michelin rated chefs serving luxury food, but you will get great meals prepared just for you. Powder White also caters to special requirements taking into consideration special diets and allergies. All you have to do is ask our staff or enter a note when making a booking and your requirements can be met.
