Jimmy’s newest pop-up brings Londoners a taste of Verbier

Leading Swiss ski resort Verbier – Val de Bagnes – La Tzoumaz is thrilled to sponsor Jimmy Garcia’s new alpine pop up, The Lodge year round in London.

Fresh from celebrating the launch of his new cookery book, pop-up maverick Jimmy Garcia will be bringing après-ski to South West London, with Verbier as headline sponsor and Provins wines and Morand liquors as partners.

Fans of Verbier, the capital of freeriding, can venture even further off-piste from the snowy peaks of the 4 Valleys for some sensational cuisine and après ski antics. Instead of dining at a mountain restaurant at the top of a gondola, guests will find The Lodge just opposite Clapham North underground station. This accessible location is ideal for foodies and excitable skiers who wait impatiently for their upcoming ski holiday.

Once inside The Lodge, guests will be transported to the belly of Verbier’s food scene in this stunning mountain-style retreat designed by Firecracker Works. Friends can cosy up in front of the fire with a warm cocktail and canapés or gather around to indulge in a delicious premium cheese fondue courtesy of Wyssmüller® Assemblage cheese in Switzerland.

Pierre-André Gremaud said; “We really wanted to have more of a presence in London, a city that is forever changing and yearning for new and exciting food experiences. We greatly admire Jimmy’s innovative approach to food and dining and our sponsorship of The Lodge celebrates the way in which Jimmy’s cooking brings out the very best of Swiss and English cuisine.”

Jimmy Garcia said; “We’ve searched high and low to bring our guests the finest seasonal produce from the best artisan suppliers. Working with Verbier has truly inspired our alpine menu and we’re delighted to be sponsored by such a popular resort.”

In addition to high quality British food that is local and seasonal, The Lodge will be serving tasty alpine fare including wine from Provins, the largest wine producer in Switzerland, Morand’s eau de vie including Abricotine and Williamine and Wyssmüller Fondues.

Verbier prides itself on providing ski enthusiasts with a winter playground for the most daring adrenaline-fuelled adventures where even the most advanced skiers can continue to challenge themselves and discover more about the exhilarating winter sports that are available in the resort. This sense of adventure, inspiration and convivial atmosphere is captured in Jimmy’s menu which changes daily, taking diners on an epicurean journey that tantalises the taste buds. This gourmet experience in addition to the alpine setting helps to recreate the legendary lifestyle of après skiing in Verbier.

The Lodge has two rooms available for private hire: The Verbier Snug Room and The Dining Room. Both are available for small parties, weddings and corporate events. Jimmy’s wealth of experience in catering, events and, of course, pop up restaurants means that guests are guaranteed to have an impressive and unforgettable dining experience.
