04 Jan Christmas and New Year in St Anton
So Christmas and New Year have passed, and we have seen many happy guests come and go in the past few weeks. So how was Christmas in St Anton…..BUSY is the answer!
We had an overly full chalet and the chef had to cater for 33 people for the week! Given that we only usually cater for 24 people (maximum) this was no mean feat…but he pulled it off with style!
The chalet team found a great rhythm and pushed on hard for the week to ensure that Christmas in the Chalet Montfort went without a hitch.
Some delicious dishes served through Christmas was the Christmas Duck and Trout, as well as some delightful desserts, mixed fruit meringue, ameretto crème brûlée.
Not to mention the Christmas dinner…..what a feast!
Starting with mixed seafood cocktail with giant shrimp, mussels and salmon in a creamy marie rose sauce.
Then a turkey Roll with stuffing and wrapped in bacon. Brussel sprouts, roast potatoes, parsnips, sweet potato mash, carrots, pigs in blankets and a delightful rich gravy. If that wasn’t enough, two whole turkeys came to the table afterwards to be carved and shared by the guests.
All finished with a rich chocolate torte and two flaming Christmas Puds for dessert!
Suffice to say, out guests were very happy and very full and it wasn’t long before most were asleep in front of the fire!
New Year was full of fireworks and festivities and we are hoping for some more fresh snow so that we can enjoy the slopes in January.
