Jersey Tennerfest Food Festival

1 October – 11 November 2018

In the Autumn, from the beginning of October to mid-November, the Channel Islands celebrates their annual Tennerfest Food Festival, which each year brings together fresh produce and top chefs in celebration of the islands’ varied and delicious cuisine. Over 200 restaurants and eateries participate, offering varied menus from just £10 a head.

The Menus

With so much fantastic locally sourced fresh produce available, the islands’ chefs have been encouraged to create special all-inclusive menus showcasing the best of their cuisine. The original Tennerfest 3 course menu price was fixed at £10 per person and whilst many establishments continue to offer this, others have diversified into 2 to 4 course menus with fixed prices of £12.50, £15, £17.50 and £20.

Participants

Tennerfest takes place over both Jersey and Guernsey with island wide cafés and bistros, gastro pubs, restaurants and hotels all participating with a diverse range of specialities reflecting local and international influences. Seafood restaurants, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mexican, and Anglo-French will be just a few of the contributors, all offering mouth-watering menus.

The Food

Jersey is renown for its excellent freshly caught seafood. As award-winning food writer Kevin Gould explained when sent out on a fishing trip by the jersey.com team;

“Jersey’s waters teem with delicious seafood, and provide some of the world’s finest fishing.”

Lobster, oysters and fresh langoustines will all appear on menus with other delights such as rainbow mackerel, scallops and sea bass. Cooked simply and presented with fresh Jersey potatoes and some creamy island butter, these make for truly home grown treats. Jersey is also famed for its Jewel tomatoes, apples, black butter, Jersey wonders and dairy produce including milk, cheese, ice cream and fudge from the islands own Jersey cows.

Where to eat, what to choose

The menus are only published in The Jersey Evening Post’s special supplement in the last week of September so it’s worth reserving a newspaper before your arrival as you will definitely be spoilt for choice!
