25 Jan What’s on the menu at Kaluma Chalets
The 2017/18 ski season is now in full swing; our guests have been enjoying our chalets and the abundance of snow on the slopes!
The gourmet food on offer at our Kaluma chalets is one of the most important parts of your stay with us, and something we hope our guests will remember for years to come! Finding experienced and inspired chefs is one of the things we dedicate the most time and attention to; we want our chefs to be creative and exciting in the food they serve, with a focus on flavour and presentation. We’re also incredibly privileged to have Big Green Eggs in all our chalets – giving our chefs a unique angle for food preparation and dish creation.
We’ve rounded up a selection of some amazing gourmet food that’s been served in our chalets so far this season – our chefs this year are incredible and it really shows in the food they are serving. Here’s just a small sample of what our guests have enjoyed so far:
