We can recommend and organize a private chef for your vacation villa, plus the delivery of any specific ingredients or equipment. We have a great working relationship with amazing chefs from Europe and the Caribbean and can provide menus with French, Creole, Asian and fusion cuisine.
Because of the equipment generally available in St Barts Villa kitchens, the convention is that everyone eats the same main courses, and variations in sides and desserts are kept to a minimum. You can eat A La Carte if you wish, however this will be more costly and require more staff and equipment. If this is what you want, just ask for it. Table D'Hôte is a good compromise. The group will have a limited range of appetizers, main courses and desserts; adding variety, and keeping logistics to a minimum.
Wines and beverages are usually quoted separately, and you can provide your own if you wish. However we have found it is always worthwhile following the chef's suggestions on wines.
The following menus are examples, you can request changes, make suggestions and let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements.
