There are a bunch of places to choose from to eat at Plaine Dranse near Morzine in the Portes du Soleil but none of them are in the same league as Chez Babethe. The interior is packed with fairy lights, ornaments, fur drapes and people turning it into something of a magical alcove. Babette ushers you to your seat - and she seems to know everyone - and you sink into cushions and fur while you wait for an aperatif. It's not cheap - starters are about 16 euros - and you won't be back on the slopes any time soon. But if you're looking for a slopesie restaurant that you'll remember for years to come then Chez Babethe is it. And the thing is - she'll remember you too, which is a nice touch.
Divertimenti in London run lunchtime cookery classes. If you're as bad as me at cooking then it's certainly an adventure! Each session covers somethign different - I did a one hour session which covered really quick dinner party meals. You get to taste everything you cook so it's not as if you miss your actual lunch and you head home with a copy of the recipes.
It's cool because you don't have to tie yourself into three months of classes and it gives you a bit of inspiration.
Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this is the place to go if you want yummy pancakes and great vegan options in a funky, upbeat atmosphere. Locally grown ingredients all over the menu and pretty socially conscious. We just found it a cool place to eat, with that Austin vibe.
