With Aiglon’s emphasis on healthy outdoor living, it is expected that our students will work up an appetite.
Luckily, here at Aiglon we take food very seriously – as a provider of sound nutrition to growing bodies, but also as a joyful, communal activity, and as a cultural learning experience where young people are able to try out new foods, discover flavours, and acquire some culinary skills of their own.
Aiglon’s has a modern restaurant standard kitchen able to cater for students daily nutritional welfare as well as major events such as graduation. It is overseen by and international team led by our Restaurant Manager and Head Chef. The food served up daily reflects the recommendations of the Swiss Society for Nutrition with the majority of products of Swiss origin, yet provides a range of international flavours reflecting the broad diversity of individuals within the School community. Vegetarian options and special diets are always available, and once per week the whole school eats a vegetarian menu.
Breakfast is eaten in student houses, and includes bread and patisseries brought in from a village bakery. Lunch is an important meal in Switzerland, and is taken by students in the main dining rooms, as are most evening meals. Sunday evening meals and special house events see students eating together in their boarding house.
For between-meal nibbles, Cookie on Campus supplies occasional treats (including Switzerland’s celebrated chocolate). And all Houses have well-equipped kitchens where students can try their hand at baking or preparing their own light meals.
