“Walking away from the chalet in the crisp morning air, our packs positively bulge with alpine gear, not to mention home-cured hams, tangy mountain cheese, fruit syrups and spirits. A sharp whistle heralds our arrival into the valley. High in the Alps, it can only mean the presence of a marmot family. Sure enough, some careful scanning reveals the fat, furry body perched on a rocky outcrop, observing our every move as we make camp.”
In Spring this year the Sidetracked team, led by our outdoor chef Kieran Creevy, spent a few days in the French Alps, enjoying the mountains, the beautiful weather and sampling some of Kieran’s very tasty wild cooking recipes using the incredible local produce.
