The Lodge’s Ski Holiday Menu

Food, News  / 

This autumn, The Lodge returns to London for its third edition. Jimmy’s pop up will be serving up cheese, meats and carbs over the cosy winter feasting period and transporting both carnivores and vegetarians alike to the ski slopes.

What to Expect

This year, TV chef Jimmy Garcia has partnered with Verbier to bring another winter of Swiss cheese and wine and Morand liqueurs to an amazing space designed to bring the après ski buzz back into the heart of the capital.

The Lodge also welcomes two new chefs this year. Ranulph Lees and Alex Cox, former chefs at Nathan Outlaw‘s Michelin-starred restaurant, have helped to create a new and exciting menu of small plates, sharers and of course, the signature fondue.

What to Eat

Sourced from handpicked independent food producers and suppliers, the quality comes through in the taste and flavour, especially in the starters and small plates.

We recommend ordering a mixture of both to share with the table, including the Ham Hock Terrine (pictured below) with piccalilli, Whipped Smoked Cod’s Roe on toast – delicious and a bargain at just £3 – and Gin-cured Salmon with horseradish yoghurt.

There is also a good range of tasty vegetarian dishes, and the Spiced Brown Butter Cauliflower and Soused Heritage Carrots were some of our favourites.

The Lodge’s Paris Brest

If you have any room for dessert – and we’ll be pretty impressed if you do – make sure you sample the Paris Brest, which comes crispy, packed with almond cream, and a tempting pot of chocolate sauce.

What to Drink

Those seeking something a little stronger can sample the popular and extensive hot cocktail menu, which includes Butter Rum, Hot Kings Ginger, and Apple and Mint Mojito, or you can cosy up with a mulled wine or cider.

The pop up hasn’t skimped on the small touches too. The Mulled Wine comes served in flasks, providing unsuspecting Londoners with nostalgic memories of cold winter days, and the shots come served in a ski – which will likely take many back to their last ski holiday!

Côte de Boeuf with béarnaise sauce

Best for…

Whether you’re sharing the small plates, desserts or the main event, The Lodge encourages you to get in stuck in with your friends and embrace the feasting season. The ultimate sharing dish, they serve up the best fondue this side of the Alps. This year they’ve opted to use the finest West Country cheeses, serving it up with deliciously buttery potatoes, buckets of bread, and there’s also an option to add wild boar sausages to dunk in the cheese!

However, if you’re not up for fondue or cheese isn’t your thing (which we find hard to believe!), you can get stuck in to Baked Turbot with clams, Côte de Bouef with a creamy béarnaise or a Barnsley Chop.

Don’t Miss

On Sundays, Jimmy will be doing his famous sharing board roasts with bottomless bubbles and 2-4-1 Bloody Marys. Throughout November, every Sunday night will also bring a quiz with the winner going into a season draw to win an amazing trip to Verbier, alongside other great prizes.
