Chalet Zermatt Peak boasts some of the most talented and varied Chefs who work throughout the year to provide guests with fresh, seasonal culinary experiences of unrivalled quality.
During the winter season, Chef Alfonso Crescenzo, one of Italy’s top up and coming new Chefs, works exclusively for Chalet Zermatt Peak and has been recognised in the Michelin Guide 2017 with his first Michelin-star. This makes Chalet Zermatt Peak the only chalet in Europe to boast this accolade. Alfonso’s cuisine is heavily influenced by his Southern Italian upbringing on the beautiful Amalfi Coast but he has experience working in Michelin-starred restaurants worldwide. His Michelin pedigree includes Head Chef in a number of one and two Michelin-star restaurants including Quattro Passi in London and a stint as a personal chef on luxury yachts.
Every Chalet Peak guest can choose their own bespoke menu for their stay and so Alfonso’s creations vary week by week; his Tiramisu however has been a favourite of countless guests, along with his Aubergine Parmigiana and Taglione with Prawns and White Truffle. The quality of his food can be confirmed by the staff at Chalet Peak, who end the winter many kilograms heavier than when they started!
The freelance Chef is Mike Huynh, a highly experienced Chef of Vietnamese and Swiss heritage whose Vietnamese background results in the most artistic, flamboyant and delicious creations! Mike’s speciality is working with Liquid Nitrogen to produce home-made instant ice cream at the table to provide a theatrical end to an evening! Providing some of the finest dining experiences of any chalet in the Alps due to the calibre of the chefs and the use of only the finest, freshest and highest quality ingredients. With menus personally tailored for each stay, guests can enjoy an unrivalled culinary adventure and it is this, along with the superlative service and stunning setting that keeps guests returning to Chalet Zermatt Peak year upon year.
