Book Now For 2014 - Gourmet Week In The French Alps
With Supertravel Ski
Fabulous for foodies, the Supertravel Ski Gourmet Week will be hosted by acclaimed Michelin star chef Richard Phillips, across all chalets in the French resort of Courchevel 1850 in March 2014. With wine selected with the help of top sommelier Ronan Sayburn, Phillips will be cooking at a different chalet every night of the week, as well as conducting a master-class in the afternoons. During the week there will also be the opportunity to enjoy a wine tasting session and to sample the local produce...with some extra surprises too!
The co-owner of the Michelin-starred restaurant Thackeray's in Tunbridge Wells and a regular on daytime TV shows including Ready Steady Cook, Too Many Cooks and ITV's Daily Cooks Challenge, Phillips started his career with Albert and Michel Roux as a young commis chef at Le Gavroche in London. He then went on to work at Le Soufflé restaurant at London's Intercontinental Hotel and then for Marco Pierre White, overseeing the kitchens of The Oak Room and The Mirabelle in central London. Phillips has also worked with the Schrager hotel group in London, putting together teams in both the Sanderson hotel and St Martin's Lane hotel, the first hotels opened by this group outside the US.
