In the Esprit Montagne kitchen we love working with fresh and where possible regional products. Many of our products are farm products from the village. A 3-course meal is € 25 per persoon. For a 4-course meal we charge € 30 per person. 

Good start of the day
Every morning between 8.00 and 9.30 AM we offer an extensive buffet, including fresh croissants, various breads, cheeses and charcuterie, jams, fresh honey, butter, boiled eggs, yoghurt, muesli, cornflakes, milk, coffee, tea, juice and fresh fruit.
Upon request we can prepare you a lunch box.

Delicious dinner
Every evening between 07.00 and 08.30 PM you will enjoy a delicious 3-course dinner with seasonal products from our region.

Many of our dishes are based on traditional recipes that have been used for centuries in the mountain kitchens.
Furthermore, you get to know the best kept secret of the Alps: its wines. We have a wonderful selection of excellent Alpine wines. Of course we also offer a selection of the more familiar wines.

Every evening you will find a small “livre d’histoire” which reveals the culinary secrets of the dishes you will be enjoying that evening. It tells you all about our products, the ingredients and traditions of the past and remarkable anecdotes about the authentic mountain cuisine.

Recipe of the Month
This month no recipe for dinner, but one for Raf’s own homemade vin chaud.

You will need:
  • 1 liter of red wine (Merlot example)
  • 1 liter of orange juice
  • 0.5 liter of apple juice
  • 100 ml Grand Marnier
  • 10 grams of fresh ginger
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 apple
  • 1 star anise
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • 2 lemons

Course of Action:
  • Cut the ginger, apple, orange, lemon and mint into pieces
  • Put this and all other ingredients in a pot
  • Bring to a boil and let it boil for 3 minutes under a closed lid
  • When the time is up, fire off and take the pot from the heat and let cool completely quiet
  • Then let it stand for another two days in the refrigerator
  • Sift it 'et voila' the vin chaud is ready to be heated!

And actually, with a good vin chaud you need something to eat as well, so still a good recipe!
