An Exceptional Culinary Experience in the Heart of an Igloo
This winter, Four Seasons Megève Collection has partnered with an igloo construction specialist to present adventurous travellers with a unique opportunity – an immersive culinary experience within an authentic igloo made entirely of snow. This extraordinary adventure begins with a snowshoe trek through the elevated terrain of Megève, led by an experienced mountain guide. Nestled amid a fir forest is a charming igloo, aglow with candlelight and adorned with cosy blankets, creating a warm and inviting ambience. Once inside, culinary enthusiasts will savour an assortment of exquisite charcuterie, local cheeses and warming mulled wine alongside a curated selection of homemade sweet delights.
The return journey promises to be just as magical as the sun sets behind the horizon, casting its final rays on the snowy landscape in a mesmerising display. Once night has descended, guests can admire a star-studded sky, infusing an additional touch of magic into the experience.
A Feast for the Senses at La Dame de Pic - Le 1920
At acclaimed Michelin-starred restaurant La Dame de Pic - Le 1920, overseen by Chef Anne-Sophie Pic, the winter season heralds the celebration of effervescent flavours, with exquisite creations that delight the palate and engage the senses. Drawing inspiration from the dynamic art of fermentation – a culinary technique the chef has ardently explored over months – the new menu daringly unites locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, resulting in a culinary journey that strikes a harmonious balance between effervescent textures and delicate interplay.
The restaurant will welcome its first guests for dinner on Friday, December 15, 2023.
