DCD Publishing is delighted to announce it has signed a representation deal with ‘London’s Pop-Up King’ (The Times, August 2013) Jimmy Garcia.
Having trained in a twice rosette Restaurant and cooked on Private Super Yachts for Arabic Royalty, Jimmy has founded three of London’s most well known sell-out pop-up restaurants: The Wild Food Kitchen, Jimmy’s Supper Club, and SouthWest Supper Club.
Jimmy’s inventive culinary delights, accompanying wine lists and vibrant atmospheres have been praised in The Times, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Evening Standard, Elle UK, SW Magazine, The Financial Times and a plethora of London-based blogs since his rise to prominence two years ago.
Taking the supper club to Stratford in summer 2012, Jimmy’s month-long warehouse residency was declared one of the Lonely Planet’s top 5 places to eat near the Olympic village and one of the top things to do in London during the Olympics (Mail Online, June 2012).
Earlier this year, Jimmy catered the UKs first ever gay marriage and is currently working on his next project which opens on 25th October 2014, an alpine lodge restaurant serving fondues, wild game and hot cocktails in Balham, details for which can be found at www.jimmyspopup.com.
Adrian Sington, CEO of DCD Publishing said:
“This signing continues our strategy to invest our time in representing up and coming chefs and other food industry professionals which started with Jack Monroe (published by Penguin), continued with Plenish’s Kara Rosen (to be published by Hachette) and chocolate company Montezuma (published this month by Kyle Books). As soon as we met Jimmy we were blown away by his energy, creativity and (obviously) his amazing food. We will be announcing a number of new clients in this area shortly.”
