Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a good one yesterday, I certainly overindulged and am now full of resolutions to be healthier, eat less and drink less…..however this doesn't start until I get back to England…obviously!!

So what better way to start the year than with a burger!!

After a morning of skiing, it was time to refuel and we chose to go to the Chalet Hotel Marie Blanche which is one of the lower restaurants so there is barely a ski down and it also has a lovely sun terrace with fantastic views. It is slightly quieter here than other places and feels very relaxing. Unfortunately there wasn't enough sun to sit outside so we ate inside the authentic alpine dining room.

As we sat down and had a drink we were offered a little plate of charcuterie which was delicious - it had my favourite saucisson which is mixed with the local beaufort cheese.

The restaurant has a good menu - soup, salads, tartars, sandwiches / wraps, meat or fish and of course my favourite, the burger! It is was a popular choice as our whole table had one. Pascal & I went for their "special" burger which was topped with reblochon.

It was delicious - plenty of cheese, great succulent meat and red onions. I actually preferred it to the one I had at Le Coeur de Cristal - I think that is because there was more cheese here and a more crispy bun. The chips were fabulous though- perfect hangover food.

The others had the cheeseburger which was exactly the same but normal cheese & I was assured was brilliant.

A great little spot for lunch - more reasonably priced than lots of places around here and the perfect place if you want a bit of peace and quiet… was just what we needed today!!
