Vegetarianism is beginning to gain wider recognition in France, though meat-eating is still regarded as the norm. Changes in lifestyle for environmental and health reasons have gone way beyond teenage fads or popular trends. These ways of eating are not only far healthier for our bodies but can positively impact our environment and climate.
Long gone are the days of struggling to find a vegetarian meal in France and being faced with pasta and grated cheese or a bland pile of lettuce leaves and the days of total confusion over veganism are now a distant memory. This is all extremely positive. But what is the next step in the evolution of dining out and dining in?
Meribel and Courchevel have always been open and adaptable to trends and, if there is a need, it is filled quickly. Most restaurants now offer vegan and vegetarian cuisine as a mainstay on their menu and these offerings go way beyond the veggie burger of the past. So do private chefs in the Three Valleys, not only serving more plant-based food but also introducing flexible catering options.
