Foggy launches new ski bar with icons of sport and music
Carl Fogarty has joined forces with two icons of sport and music – ex-England rugby captain, Lawrence Dallaglio, and pop superstar, James Blunt – to launch a new bar and restaurant in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier.
The trio joined mutual friend and businessman Rob Sawyer to open La Vache, at the top of the James Blunt ski lift at Attelas.
The menu features a Fogarty pizza – at number one on the list – and one of the toilets is even themed to feature Foggy on the starting grid.
Carl said: “I have skied in Verbier lots of times so I had no hesitation when I was asked to get involved with this venture, especially with two guys who I really admire for what they have done in their chosen professions.
“It’s an amazing location with sensational views and the food is pretty awesome too. We had great fun over the opening weekend, but it was difficult for me and James to keep up in drinking with a man of the size of Lawrence Dallaglio!”
Legendary chef Heston Blumenthal was also present at the opening celebrations, as was Carl’s friend and co-star of their popular Foggy and Whit: Givin’ It Gas chat show tour, James Whitham.
