French Food

We had some terrific food.  I do love France – our chalet hosts did lovely dinners and we had some great lunches.

Chalet du Nabor - just above the Pleney lift.  Order the Cote de Boeuf

If I ate this way all year long, it would become unbearable but when you’re skiing, you really do need a lot of carbohydrates and protein.  I left my fitbit at home but rather regretted it – I would have liked to see whether it recorded skiing as equivalent to walking.

If you are in the area, one place we had lunch in was La Grande Ourse in Les Gets.  It’s right at the top of the mountain but is easy enough to get to (as long as you are on skis).  I think it is English owned (at least all the staff were English) and I had the goose salad.  So utterly delicious, it had strawberries in it.
