48 hours to open Jersey.

Foodie weekend in Jersey: 48 hours to discover the delights of the Isle of Man.

In Jersey, the local produce you’ll find on the menu is as fresh as the sea air. Tide time is just the time it takes for our products to get from the field or sea to the plate.

On the menu for this gourmet holiday: an organic brunch at the market, a seafood platter at Port Gorey, a local beer at the island’s oldest pub, a crab sandwich at the mythical Port Roselle, a Jersey ice cream with a view of the Corbiere Lighthouse. , a Jersey-style Afternoon Tea and a locally sourced dinner, highlighted by Chef Joseph Baker in Room 10. 48 hours is not too long to appreciate our quintessentially British flavors with a unique island twist.

Day 1

Brunch at the bazaar
St Helier’s covered markets are bursting with colour, character and local produce; they have been serving the Jersey community for over 200 years. Treat yourself to brunch at La Bouche, which highlights the island’s best produce. From the Central Market, cross the street to the Fish Market where you can sample freshly caught lobsters, oysters and crabs on the spot!

Fish & Chips and local beer in the pub
The best advertising always has a story. The Old Smugglers Inn, a former smuggler’s hideout, is just meters from Waine Beach. It serves a great selection of local beers and typical British pub specialties such as Fish & Chips.

Jersey-style polo shirt
Enjoy a traditional Jersey cream tea by topping your scones with island specialties such as Jersey black butter, Jersey Dairy clotted cream or strawberry jam made at La Mare Wine Estate. A real pleasure!

Seasonal dinner in room 10
The Number 10 restaurant-bar uses seasonal products from the island. To prove this, chef Joseph Baker is a frequent guest on the BBC’s Great British Menu. The menu of his restaurant promises to awaken your taste buds. Try the fried oysters with hot sauce or the Jersey Angus steak with local green asparagus. Perfectly.

day 2

English breakfast with surfers
Head to El Tico Beach Cantina on St Ouen Beach this morning to share a typical British full breakfast or a vegetarian version with surfers preparing to hit the waves of the bay.

Seafood with a view of the Mont Orgay castle
A stay in Jersey would not be complete without sampling a dozen or so oysters. With the third largest tidal range in the world, the island has ideal conditions for producing oysters with a unique taste. After visiting the iconic Château de Mont-Orgay, we board Soumas in the port of Gorey for hand-caught scallops, Grouville Bay oysters and lobster.

Treat yourself to the Hungry Man
The mythical “Hungry Man” kiosk in Port Roselle offers not only delicious crab or bacon sandwiches; you can also treat yourself to a hot chocolate topped with a mountain of marshmallows, drizzled with cream and sprinkled with chocolate chips. Then burn off the calories by walking the coastal path that runs along the cliff.

The cream of the crop at the Corbières lighthouse
Heading towards the southwestern tip of the island, you will see the La Corbiere lighthouse, which is not to be missed. Not only the architecture of this beautiful white lighthouse attracts attention. This is also its location, at the end of a causeway submerged at high tide and surrounded by rocks. One of the most Instagrammed spots on the island, it just so happens to be home to Jersey’s best ice cream parlor!

FYI foodies, an event not to be missed next year…
