"My husband and I are "foodies", and are quite picky about our meals; add to that my gluten and dairy allergies and you have what could be a chef's worst nightmare. Mo faced the challenge with ease and smiles. Mo's culinary creations combined simplicity with a creative flair and she achieved hearty meals that satisfied our advanced palates. I was particularly impressed with her sensitivity and awareness to my gluten and dairy allergies. She created meals for me that did not sacrifice any of the quality or taste that the regular menu offered. Mo is a talented chef and I would travel back to Canada for her meals as much as for the fantastic skiing in British Columbia.... we are still talking about her ribs - YUM!"
Mo has fuelled most of the ski touring guests I have guided over the last few years. We have always enjoyed her cooking and always found ourselves fully satisfied, literally, at the end of each meal. Not only is she very capable at keeping people well fed, she does it with extreme efficiency and a smile on her face, with never a stressful moment in or near the kitchen. Plus, she can ski!
Whether you are staying at a deluxe backcountry lodge, a simple alpine hut, or roughing it in tents, Mo’s Mountain Cuisine has you covered. Mo’s cooking is perfect for those big alpine days, or casual day hikes. There is nothing quite like coming home to a warm bowl of soup and a hearty meal. Mo’s Mountain Cuisine provides breakfast, lunch, appetizers, dinner, and dessert, as well as snacks. Dietary restrictions? No problem.
