At Mountain Thyme we believe great food doesn’t have to be complicated; and we know that with a little guidance and a sprinkling of inspiration we can get anyone cooking delicious food that everyone wants to eat. Our aim is to help you create food you can be proud of, without any of the stress.

Set in the centre of the stunning Swiss resort of Verbier, Mountain Thyme offers you a chance to hone your cooking skills. Whether you prefer not to ski or hike every day, or you fancy a new challenge, there is a wide range of courses to suit you. Choose from our regulars, Swiss Alpine ClassicsCanapes & cocktails and the ever-popular Round the World series, where we explore a new cuisine each week, or one of our seasonal or specialist courses, such as Gluten-free Baking or Perfect Pastry..

For kids, we offer classes for infants, juniors and teens where the children can learn to cook healthy meals (and the occasional treat!) in a fun and engaging session. They develop essential skills and have a great time, as well as learning to try and taste all kinds of new foods.

We can also arrange classes for private groups or individuals (either adults or children) specially tailored to your requirements. 

Mountain Thyme also offer a private dining space for up to 12 guests in our lovely dining room, and up to 20 people on our sunny terrace. We can create a bespoke menu for you, for those special occasions or evenings when you just feel like being spoiled. These can be offered with or without a cookery demonstration.

For those wanting to eat in the comfort of their own home without any of the effort, go to Sheppard's Pie to see all the details and menus for our delivery service of delicious homemade ready meals.
