Our Food

Our head chef James is a creative and experienced professional chef. He’s worked many winter seasons for some of the best luxury chalet companies in the Alps and we’re delighted to welcome him to the Chalet Fourmiliere team this year. James’ culinary career began at London’s 5* Four Seasons Hotel, where he progressed quickly through the ranks under a stream of expert mentors. At two-Michelin-starred Gidleigh Park Hotel James developed his organisation skills before moving into event catering and subsequently winter season roles in Meribel, Courchevel and St Martin de Belleville.
