FOOD TASTING WITH HUSKI - James Cove, PlanetSKI Editor
Friday July 12, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

Huski has teamed up with Skiline to offer guests what it calls 'The experience of a catered chalet, at the price of self-catered'.







Beckenham is not the obvious place to head to for a foodie experience.

It lies half in south London and half in north Kent.

Think Privet Drive from the pen of J.K. Rowling and where Harry Potter stayed with his uncle and aunt, Vernon & Petunia Dursley.

Though the residents of Beckenham would probably prefer it to be known as the home of David Bowie.

For those that like gourmet food it is probably not on their lists of places to visit.

But it is where the directors of SkiLine, Angus and Sarah Kinloch live and they had invited PlanetSKI and a few others along to sample some of next winter's offerings.

Huski has a new concept for a package ski holiday - "Catered by Huski".

It is being piloted with SkiLine next winter

"Catered By Huski" promises a new price point and offer in the market:

Its motto: The experience of a catered chalet, at the price of self-catered.

The food we sampled was prepared at the Huski kitchens in Bourg St Maurice in the Alps and brought over from France.

It was prepared by the Huski chef, Nick Casey.

The starter selection was wild mushroom pate, hoisin duck, mini salmon Wellington, and butternut squash with goats cheese.

Then it was on to the main course tasters.

Tartiflette, chicken Savoyarde, and vegetable lasagne, - all accompanies by a crispy green salad.

Then we tucked into chocolate tort and cherry almond tart.

The company now provides food for people staying in self-catering chalets across the French Alps - all of its 257 resorts.

Many of the UK tour operators including Inghams, Skiworld, Ski Famille and Zenith, to name just a few, also use the Huski food.

I sampled the product last December in Les Arcs and for full details about the Huski experience follow the link below:

I was there last December as the Huski kitchens in Bourg were being built.
