Real food, homemade with love
About Teresa's Kitchen
Teresa Bortoluzzi is a private chef offering chalet catering in the Tarentaise Valley. She is based in Sainte-Foy Tarentaise, in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps.
Growing up in the Dolomite mountains of Northeastern Italy, cooking and food were always at the center of my life. Typical Italians, my family were passionate about high quality, healthy food, and my best memories from childhood are of picking fruit from my grandparents’ garden. Even as a little girl, learning how to cook at my grandmother’s side, I was making and selling jams to my relatives.
I studied Engineering Management and graduated with honors in 2017. Whiles studying in Bologna, the culinary capital of Italy, I found myself increasingly drawn towards cooking and the food industry. When the opportunity arose to move to the French Alps in 2018 and work as a ‘chef de cuisine’ in a restaurant kitchen, I took it.
Teresa’s Kitchen is my project, and I am looking forward to provide high quality and hearty homemade meals in the comfort of your own chalet. I specialize in healthy, sustainable cooking, of course with an Italian influence. I am passionate about using local products and seasonal ingredients to give you the most authentic and fresh experience.

What my clients say about me
Teresa cooked breakfast and dinner for our family and friends (4 adults and 4 Children) over Christmas. After understanding our dietary requirements via email on the lead up to the holiday a menu was planned. Upon arrival she came up to the chalet and guided us through the week in detail making any last minute amends.
A delicious cooked breakfast was served every morning at 8 for the whole group. Teresa is a an amazing chef and her baking is next level. A delicious cake or some kind of baking was left on the table for a much loved by all afternoon snack.
A yummy and healthy dinner for the kids was served at around 5 - 6 followed by dinner for the adults at 7. Teresa food is absolutely delicious, creative and healthy. It was exactly what we felt like eating on a holiday in the mountains. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.
We couldn’t recommend Teresa highly enough and have already pre-booked her for all our future ski trips, it comes as no surprise she’s already booked up for some of them.
