So the seed was sown……. Julie & Chris asked me to return the following season as chef alongside Natalie. I couldn’t have asked for a better team, Natalie and I worked well together, her cakes and desserts were to die for, we spent our mornings preparing the meals in the Mont Blanc kitchen, with the help of the rest of the team when they had finished their varying roles, it was very much a family affair, the music would be playing. Shopping day was on a Thursday, it makes going to Tesco’s pale into insignificance when you are shopping for up to 80 guest. Dan, Todd and I would set off in two vehicles, 12 shopping trolleys later and back up the mountain to unload. I’ve never lived down the day I left two trolleys behind in Super U, One of “Sharon’s senior moments” they never seemed to forget!! Skiing was amazing trying to keep up with this lot, my skiing certainly got faster that season. Staff days out were fun, going to La Plagne on the Olympic Bob sleigh run, Arpette on Wednesdays and skiing back in the dark.
