Jersey’s cuisine

Traditional Jersey’s predominantly anglo-french cuisine has now taken on a fusion of tastes from around the world with an eclectic array of restaurants, hotel venues, bistros, cafes and gastro pubs offering cosmopolitan dishes at reasonable prices. However the area hasn’t attracted a host of well regarded celebrity chefs without reason and locally sourced, freshly cooked dishes feature on the menus of the islands prestigious Michelin starred restaurants, undoubtedly taking the islands bountiful natural larder as inspiration.

Jersey Specialities

Serviced by the warm Gulf Stream, the clear Jersey waters offer superb fish catches with abundant shellfish, oysters, scallops, lobster and crabs at the ready. Further out to sea, Bass and Black Bream are renown catches but simply cooked mackerel with fresh Jersey Royals has to be an island favourite dish.

The Jersey Royal and apples

Carefully gathered seaweed, or vraic, fertilises the soil and leads to the growth of one of Jersey’s best known commodities, the Jersey Royal potato. However Jersey Jewel tomatoes are also widely distributed and the islands apple orchards produce some of the oldest and most unusual products in the form of Jersey Black Butter, a sticky black treacle looking preserve made from apples.

Dairy

Possibly the ‘face of Jersey’ the beautiful brown Jersey Cows service the islands food industry more than anything else. Jersey milk, cream, butter, ice cream, yoghurt, fudge and artisan cheeses being just a few of the products readily available on worldwide supermarket shelves.

Wine, Cider and Ales

Enjoying the same latitude and sunny climate as many of the famous wine production areas on the continent has supported the growth of white and red grape varieties on the island and the production of some excellent island wines. With the abundance of apples, cider and brandy are readily available and keenly celebrated whilst La Mare Wine Estate has just succeeded with the first Jersey Royal based vodka. The award winning Liberation Brewery is also situated on the island.

La Mare Wine Estate – wines, ciders, chocolates, fudge and the first Jersey Royal Vodka!

Jersey Specialities

Bean Crock

A slowly cooked bean and beef stew, traditionally flavoured with a pig’s trotter!

Ormers

Harvested under strict conditions due to their rarity, this sought after shellfish is best accompanied by crusty bread and a glass of fine white wine.
