‘Cooking is the art of transforming ingredients for the sole objective of enjoyment.’ As a true epicurean I have worked hard with my team to select only the best that Chamonix has to offer… Enjoy!

Coopérative Fruitière du Val d’Arly

A freat local ‘coopérative’ that regroups only the best of local producers with a wide range of products from all around the mountains.

Local produce
L’Alpage des Aiguilles

In the heart of  Chamonix this is the best place to find the very best of local produce – cheese hams, salamis etc with a warm welcome and great friendly advice.

Ma che bella!
La spiga d’oro

A great Italian ‘traiteur’ with fresh pasta and proper ‘Buratta’

Pâtisserie Richard

A genuine tea room making and serving the finest of French Patisserie to take home but even better to enjoy on the terrace and watch the world going by.

Fresh products and fun to boot!

I just love markets… particularily early in the day before it gets crowded – The only place to buy oysters direct from source, all locallly produced hams and cheeses but also locally brewed coffee, pancakes, roast chickens and much much more…

The healthy options
L'Epicerie des Praz

The Épicerie des Praz is the convenience store that helps you out at any time of the day, on a human scale, each product is carefully selected such as fruits and vegetables from market gardener David Vallas de Vallorcine.

A local GENIUS
Le Pain de Chibon

Gerard has been involved in wine, bars and restaurants and has now turned his hand to the production of bread at its finest – one forgets how bread can taste just amazing – Thank you Gerard for reminding us that this simplest of foods can be an art form!


Situed in Argentière it's The Bakery place in the Valley, a really typical spot were you will found some delicious veinnoiseries, Kenny the boss even won a competition for the best "croissant" in 2019 !

In a rush, just need to get it done? 

Several supermarkets up and down the Valley – for me the best overall is the Carrefour market in Les Houches and for fish the Super U in Les Houches.
Super U, Marché U, Carrefour Market, Carrefour contact…
