I was very excited to be offered a job working for Hucksters as a Chef. I was ready to take on a new challenge preparing and cooking food for up to 80 guests (how hard could it be!!!!) The first couple of weeks consisted of getting to know my new season family and home for the next 4 months and exploring the resort and the best places to drink (not difficult with the bar right next door) I also managed a little bit of skiing!! While working we practiced the menu and finalizing recipes which was great fun catering for only a small number of guests. Then the first big week Christmas!!!!! For me this was an incredibly hard time. I had never been away from home at Christmas before and I missed my family and friends terribly :( however my lovely season family and out wonderful guests help to make it extra special. Christmas eve came and the veg prep was immense. I have never seen so much veg this was going to be a total chalet effort. Despite the hard work it was great fun sitting round with all the staff and guests singing along to Christmas songs and have a drink or two (maybe three). Christmas day came and went in a massive blur of Christmas jumpers, Christmas hats, Secret Santa presents, a well deserved visit to the spa and then the mammoth task of cooking a 3 course Christmas dinner for 50!!!!!! Somehow myself and Sharon (the head chef) pulled it off, only melting a few Christmas puddings.
