Chalet 105 has returned for another season at the trendy beach club Twiggy by La Cantine.
Don’t panic if you can’t travel to the mountains this festive season because an alpine retreat has opened at Twiggy by La Cantine to satisfy all your winter cravings.
The Chalet 105 pop-up returns to Twiggy by La Cantine on Friday, 1 December and can be found in one of the venue’s large cabanas which have been converted into a chic winter cabin decorated with skis, candles, a faux fireplace and stacks of logs.
The transformation into an alpine escape is impressive. The quaint and charming interiors feature a roaring fireplace, cow skin rugs and slatted wooden walls with mountain vistas traced upon the windows. Statement Montblanc watches and pens are housed in glass cases because Chalet 105 is a collaboration with the luxury European Maison, which takes its name from the snow-capped mountain.
White tablecloths and chairs draped in sheepskin set the tone for cosy winter comfort, matched only by the warm hospitality and hearty alpine cuisine. The culinary experience (starting at AED 425 per person) features a selection of Savoie-inspired cuisine that begins with a glass of spiced mulled grape for all the festive feels.
The three-course menu has been designed for sharing and features a thick chestnut soup adorned with truffle that is followed by a bubbling Fondue Savoyarde. The hearty mixture of Comté, Beaufort and Tomme de Savoie cheese is kept warm by a small burner and accompanied by a green salad and plenty of bread for dipping.
Keeping the enjoyment level high, the next course is raclette, where melted cheese is scraped onto a bed of potatoes. Guest will also be served a charcuterie platter featuring a trio of meats accompanied by pickles and mustard.
The fun at Chalet 105 continues well into the dessert course, where the savoury cheese fondue is exchanged for a sweet chocolate variation. Expect fruits, marshmallows and cream-filled profiteroles for dipping in a decadent festive experience that will leave you well and truly stuffed.
Backed by an upbeat soundtrack, Chalet 105 offers the delights of a distinctly offbeat après ski experience. Providing the perfect atmosphere for a festive-themed dinner with family, friends or colleagues.
