Champagne G.H. Mumm Partner Of London Restaurant Festival
The London Restaurant Festival - brainchild of restaurant critic Fay Maschler - today announced that for the second successive year Champagne G.H. Mumm will be its official champagne partner. Champagne G.H. Mumm will be involved throughout the two-week event which takes place from October 4th to 18th 2010. G.H. Mumm is widely regarded as a champagne marque which is able to enhance and complement a wide range of food dishes and therefore is an ideal partner to collaborate with the two-week festival which celebrates all aspects of dining out in London. G.H. Mumm will support the festival in a number of different ways, including:

• Festival Menus. Every participating restaurant creates a special Festival Menu, a great-value three-course lunch or dinner showcasing the very best of their specialist cuisine. This year 25 of these menus will be sponsored by Champagne G.H. Mumm, with diners enjoying G.H. Mumm champagne as part of their dining experience.

• The Gourmet Odyssey. One of the most popular events at last year’s festival, the return of the Gourmet Odyssey will see a handful of lucky diners enjoying a starter at one exclusive restaurant, a main course at another, before having dessert at a third. Each odyssey begins with a champagne reception at the chic Met Bar, where Champagne G.H. Mumm Cordon Rouge will be served. Getting from one restaurant to the next is all part of the fun with this event – diners travel on a fleet of liveried Routemaster buses. G.H. Mumm’s Gourmet Odyssey will take in some of London’s top dining areas including (restaurants being finalised) Piccadilly, Park Lane and Belgravia. As well as champagne on-board the bus, different styles will then be served with each course.

Simon Davis, Co-founder and Director of the London Restaurant Festival comments: “The Gourmet Odyssey is one of the landmark events to return to the London Restaurant Festival. It combines fun, great food and adventure in equal measures and we are delighted that Champagne G.H. Mumm will be working with us to create another outstanding line-up of Festival events.”

Jo Spencer, Head of Marketing for Champagne at Pernod Ricard UK, commented: "We are delighted that G.H. Mumm will be the official Champagne of The London Restaurant Festival again. G.H. Mumm is the perfect Champagne to accompany food as it enhances and complements a wide range of dishes. The house style focuses on the Pinot Noir grape which provides both fruit and structure - two vital ingredients when it comes to the successful pairing of wine with food.”

Spencer added: “We’re very excited about supporting the Festival – and working with the many outstanding chefs and sommeliers who make up the fabric of London’s world-leading restaurant scene. In fact, G.H. Mumm has cultivated close ties with the world of gastronomy since its foundation in 1827, so this is a superb opportunity to showcase the breadth and quality of its award-winning range. G.H. Mumm Champagne will be enjoyed not only as a stylish aperitif, but also paired with some of London’s finest menus at some of the city’s most exciting restaurants.”
