Welcome to Jenna May Food, a private chef & catering service based in the Chamonix Valley.
We provide private chefs for anything from a once-off dinner party to week-long fully catered packages, in private
homes and holiday chalets. Offering a personalized service for each of our clients, based on special dietary
requirements as well as individual preferences. We are flexible and do our best to customize a package to suit your
needs. We charge for our time plus the cost of ingredients, sourcing the very best ingredients while trying to use local
and seasonal produce wherever possible.
Jenna May Food provides catering for large events, including cocktail parties, conferences, weddings, film
productions and launch parties. Every event has its own custom-designed menu, which is shaped around our client’s
preferences. And, we are as comfortable cooking a small home dinner as we are running an event for 500 people.
We enjoy the challenge of a magnificent formal banquet, as well as a relaxed dinner for 8.
We simply love to create fabulous food - whether it’s an Asian evening, a delectable wedding dinner… or just a relaxed garden barbeque.
Our team is passionate about good food, simply but skillfully prepared, cooked and creatively presented. Coming
from a fine dining background and driven by uncompromising standards of food preparation, faultless service and
attention to detail our chefs have perfected both classical and modern dining, just for you.

“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop
whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
Established by Jenna Beaugey in 2006, Cape Town based Jenna May Food has built an exceptional reputation for producing the best food and providing reliable service to her high-end clients.
Recently, Jenna - the owner and face behind the Jenna May Food brand - relocated to Chamonix because she
married Sam, a locally born and bred high mountain guide. Jenna May Food’s expansion into Chamonix offers new
clients the opportunity to savour unbelievably good food in their own homes or holiday chalets……
Jenna May Food offers a wide selection of canapés, finger foods, and nibbles, from simple snacks to exquisite
gourmet canapés. Our barbecue menus offer a good value solution for large groups, summer parties and relaxed
lunches! And weddings are always real pleasure for us! Whether it's a relaxed occasion in a family chalet, an
alternative ceremony in a high-mountain setting, or a fairytale garden marquee for 250, we take care of all your
We apply the same passion for food and attention to detail whatever the event.

"For the last 8 years Jenna has been the backbone of the White Desert Camp in Antarctica, turning out an array of incredible dishes and delectable three-course meals even when the weekly food deliveries didn’t quite go as planned! Taking challenges in her stride, and always with a smile. She miraculously manages to keep the same standard of service despite the remote location."
Director & MD – White Desert
"Jenna is a fantastic chef and a great professional, the delicious food prepared for three days for a group of 20 friends in my chalet in Chamonix, just perfect, a fantastic souvenir that each of the guests will remember forever. She turned every meal into a unique moment of joy and gourmet pleasure!!!"
“Jenna is a star and I would have no hesitation recommending her. In the deepest and darkest depths of Russia, with limited ingredients and a tough working environment she produced sensational food time after time. Everything was delivered bang on time with the broadest of smiles. “
Director of Fishing - Roxtons Field Sports
"Jenna, you made our trip. Thanks so much! It was great to meet you and you really are such a gifted gourmet magician. I hope to see you the next time we are in Cape Town or Chamonix!"

“Jenna is an excellent and innovative chef. Her duties were not only in the kitchen as she did all the budgeting, shopping and acted as concierge for our ‘sometimes’ demanding guests. Jenna personality, professionalism, organization skills and undoubted abilities in the kitchen scored the highest possible marks with all our guest over the 3 summers she was with us.”
