Embrace seasonality with Genuine Jersey

Jersey’s foodie annual

Jersey has an amazing group of passionate producers who are committed to giving us top quality local produce from milk, meat, fish and seafood to potatoes, vegetables, salads and herbs, to cider and beer, jams and chutneys.

10

These are the people who eat, breathe and sleep what they do - wrestling the high seas to bring in a catch, picking the tenderest herbs for packing daily, moving their hen house to fresh grass, hand cutting the soft curd cheese, preserving fruit and chillies to make mouth watering chutneys. Great food takes time and energy to arrive on our plates - and so it should. For a small Island we are in the enviable position of producing topnotch food. Speak to Jersey’s top chefs, or to Jamie, Rick, or Marco. They fall into rapturous sighs about the quality and freshness of all our produce; from our crab and lobster to our coriander and chard, to our scallops and our cream and they love to include it on their menus.

)\[V\YSVJHSMHYTLYZHUKÄZOLYTLU need our support. The future is not without challenges. Just a thought about where the contents of our shopping basket come from can make a big difference to the future of the Island and to keep it the unique place we love. If you’re already used to buying Jersey produce, the next few pages will introduce you to some more local producers. If you are not yet convinced about buying local, what are you waiting for? Read on and taste what is out there on your doorstep.

Passionate producers: Don Thompson

Don Thompson has been chairman of the Jersey Fisherman’s Association for four years and is responsible for the Fish Festival, now in its third year. Antipodean by birth, Don has been fishing in the waters around Jersey for 30 years.

What do you catch? Pretty much only lobsters now ^P[OZVTLIHZZÄZOPUNPU[OL summer. I have 200 lobster pots, which yield up around 40 kilos (roughly 65 lobsters) a day. The pots are around the Minquiers reef - between here and St Malo - an area jointly managed by Jersey HUK-YLUJOÄZOLYTLU What makes Jersey lobsters so special?

There is strict stipulation on size, so they have time to breed and the process is sustainable. Where do you sell your lobster? I sell some here. Most of the catch is exported to France and sold to a large wholesaler for distribution through France and Italy. What are the challenges? Intervention from Brussels.

Passionate producers: Didier Hellio

Didier Hellio has 320 vergees (142 acres) of farmland in the north west of the Island which he runs with his wife, Christine.

makes it perfect for growing veg and it gives the unmistakable nutty taste to the Jersey Royal. We put vraic – seaweed - on our potatoes and rotate our land with grazing for heifers.

What do you grow? Jersey Royals – for the local and L_WVY[THYRL[Z¶JH\SPÅV^LYZ cabbages, leeks, parsnips, carrots and lots of other seasonal veg for sale locally. We plant early Royals in polytunnels in October for harvesting in February and then plant the rest of the potatoes in batches in January and February for harvesting from April onwards to the end of June.

What are the challenges? Farming is hard work. Potato production is very labour-intensive. Planting has to be done by hand and we have 10 vergees of côtils and there the Royals have to be lifted by hand too. They have to be covered ^P[OWSHZ[PJHUKÅLLJL[VRLLW^HYT and encourage growth, so you end up with an expensive product. Of course we are reliant on the weather and we have to work continually to get fresh, top quality vegetables out to our customers.

How long have you been farming? My parents came over from France to farm in Jersey. They worked the land and then were tenant farmers. Farming is in my blood and I’ve been farming since 1975 at Manor Farm. My wife, Christine, works alongside me and she is a great support. What is so special about the land in Jersey? It’s completely unique. The rich soil is light and drains well which

Where do you sell your veg? In our farm shop at Manor Farm in Vinchelez, St Ouen, Classic Herd in St Peter, Woodside in Trinity and at the Co-op. We have fantastic support from the local community who come back to us time and again because we supply fresh, local seasonal produce at a good price.


Passionate producers: Richard Le Boutillier

Richard Le Boutillier is one of the Island’s largest dairy farmers, with 250 cows. His farm, Woodlands, is on the border of St Helier and St John. How does the milking production process work? When a heifer is two years old, she has her ÄYZ[JHSM^OPJOZ[HY[ZOLYTPSRWYVK\J[PVU She will then produce 15-16 litres of milk a day for about 10 months, after which her milk starts to dry up. Ideally, cows will calve once a year and keep on producing milk for 10 or 12 cycles. In our herd we have 200 cows which are milking. We milk twice a day, every day, and the milk is collected daily by the dairy, pasteurised, packaged, and distributed across the Island. Is it the same throughout the year? In the winter months, there is a tendency for milk volumes to decline as there are fewer nutrients in the grass. Then, when spring comes round again and the grass is full of goodness, the milk becomes richer. Obviously, people want a consistent product PU[OLPYJVMMLLHUKVU[OLPYJVYUÅHRLZZV^L supplement their diet over the winter with feed, hay and silage.

The above is a sample menu from this venue. Check online at www.appetite.je for the latest foodie news

What is so special about the Jersey cow? They are lovely, gentle, docile creatures. Although they produce less volume of milk than the Holstein-Friesian cattle (the black and white cows you see typically in the UK), their milk is so much richer and has more taste. It is higher in proteins and butterfat, so it’s full of goodness and great for making cream and cheese. What are the challenges facing dairy farmers? These tough economic times have sent world prices of feed and fertilizer skyrocketing. Feed prices have doubled and look set to JVU[PU\LZVP[PZHKPMÄJ\S[[PTL[VILPU farming. Do you produce anything else on the farm? We grow potatoes which we sell from April, at our Potato Shack on the St John’s Road. We dig them every day, so they are as fresh as they come, with Jersey soil on them to keep the goodness in. This year we are offering a postal service where people will be able to send some to friends overseas. We also grow strawberries and we make our own strawberry jam, which we also sell from the Shack.

Passionate producers: Paul Hurley

Paul Hurley is Head Brewer of Liberation Brewery and has been involved in brewing the Island’s favourite beers and cask ales for 26 years.

Jersey’s foodie annual

How did you become Head Brewer? I had just got my biochemistry degree and was heading back home to Jersey and saw an ad for Lab Manager at the brewery. I wasn’t especially interested in the job but I really wanted to have a look round the brewery! That was 26 years ago. Lab Manager was a really interesting job, you had to check all the raw materials and the brew has to be monitored through every stage of the process. I loved being in the brewery, it’s such an interesting place and I started doing tours but I found there were gaps in my knowledge. I went to the UK to train as a brewer and X\HSPĂ„LKPU ;OL/LHK)YL^LYSLM[HUK 0[VVRV]LY;OLĂ„YZ[ILLY0THKL^HZH  lager and it ran for 15 years.

surf-side food

El Tico Beach Cantina For chic and contemporary surf-side eating, try the ‘world-famous’ El Tico. After its makeover in 2009, the legendary St. Ouen’s Café has been turned into a stylish new cantina that serves incredible surfers’ breakfasts as well as relaxed lunches and suppers. The menu’s Contemporary British Cantina with some really moreish food like the amazing sticky sesame barbecue ribs, the classic Genuine Jersey Beef Burger, the crab linguine, the aromatic crispy duck salad, or the East African king prawn curry, the choice is extensive and there’s a brilliant children’s menu too. They really have every corner covered when it comes to delicious comfort food. With its wide refectory style tables El Tico makes a great place to take in the awesome view and spend an afternoon with a group of friends checking out the surf (or the surfers) and, later on, the inspiring sunsets. Catch some waves yourself after your meal if you fancy, at the Laneez Surf Centre right beside El Tico and book yourself a surf lesson or do a little retail therapy of the latest hip surf gear. The atmosphere at El Tico is casual and relaxed but take note, it gets really busy, so be prepared to wait for a table at peak times, it’s worth it though! Whether you’re out for a breath of fresh air and nipping in for a great cup of coffee and a fancy cupcake or looking for a snack in the late afternoon the “All Day Menu” will have something for you.

La Cantina

Jersey’s foodie annual

Since 1992, the Calvani family have taken their family’s traditional Italian recipes, culinary ethos, and cooking techniques, and then added the finest local ingredients to recreate an authentic Italian experience at La Cantina. It’s food ‘just like Mamma used to make’, with a fresh, modern twist, served without any fuss in a relaxed, Italian atmosphere where everyone feels at home. Everything is prepared from scratch, using top quality imported and local seasonal produce. Their homemade, all natural, Genuine Jersey pasta is fresh every day and their pizza dough is made the traditional way, to a centuries-old Italian recipe using a ‘lievito madre’ QDWXUDO\HDVWFXOWXUHDQGÀUHGLQDVWRQHRYHQIRUWKH,VODQGҋVPRVW authentic Italian pizza. Using the best of what Jersey has to offer, they make a range of delicacies including homemade Italian style Jersey pork sausages. There are also seasonal foraged offerings, such as ‘gnocchi all’ortica’ stinging nettle gnocchi and local scallops with wild garlic. While La Cantina keeps things ‘old school’ in the kitchen, the restaurant is bringing Italian food right up to date with a fresh wholewheat version of their pastas and pizzas, and a menu that allows the guest to customize their meal. There’s a unique user-friendly 100% Italian, price-banded, wine list that features exclusive wines that they import directly from the vineyard, and a large selection of quality wines by the glass. Enjoy the La Cantina experience at home and take-away anything from their menu.

From coffee carts to mobile creperies, the new wave of food on the move is far more tech savvy – they’ll let you know where they are via Twitter and Facebook.


Food festivals As we turn into a nation of foodies, watch out for more adventurous food stalls at the island’s events. Forget the dodgy kebab van, we’ll start to see more local farmers and food producers turning up with their Jersey beef burgers and local pork sausages.

Foraging What better way to save money and reduce food miles than to forage for your own food? Expect to see more restaurants using samphire, nettles and other local wild food on their menu – and why not, it’s free…

Jersey Royals, Jersey cows andâ&#x20AC;Ś Japanese shiitake mushrooms? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a combination youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect, but in the deep recesses of a Jersey valley, the Racjan family have been growing exotic shiitake using traditional organic methods for the last 20 years. It all started back in 1990 when a university lecturer challenged 0LFN5DFMDQWRĂ&#x20AC;QGRXWZKHWKHUVKLLWDNHPXVKURRPVZRXOGJURZLQ the British climate, while still following a traditional organic growing method. Much to the surprise of the university, who later produced a paper on Mickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, the shiitake mushrooms mushroomed, and the Racjan family found themselves inundated with exotic fungi. Mickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Jamie explains: â&#x20AC;&#x153;After eating lots ourselves we started taking the mushrooms to Jersey restaurants and hotels. I set off, armed with a makeshift invoice book, an industrial quantity of mushrooms and a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rabbit in the headlightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; look that told all the chefs I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a clue. I did have a great product though. The shiitake sold on its own merits and still does to this dayâ&#x20AC;?. The Racjan family have found the perfect spot for their shiitake - the Fungi Delecti farm is in a valley at the highest point of the island, and with the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warmer climate and fresh sea air, the mushrooms have thrived. The family planted 10,000 trees in The above is a sample menu from this venue. Check online at www.appetite.je for the latest foodie news

As well as their shiitake and oyster mushrooms, Fungi Delecti has expanded into a full-on exotic food farm with micro vegetables, baby herbs and free range duck and hensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eggs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We try and use the whole farm, so we use a breed of hen that can cope with the exposed conditions up here, and they roam freely across the whole 12-acre farm.

fine dining Stunning local produce and some seriously talented chefs. It’s a recipe for foodie heaven. With some of the country’s top-rated restaurants right here on our doorstep, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to spoiling ourselves. After all, we do have more Michelin stars than your average island…


106 Jerseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foodie annual


Stars in their eyes I

t’s funny that the Michelin Guide, which started life as a French tyre company’s glove compartment guide to where hungry motorists could stop for lunch, should turn into such a hallowed tome with the power to make or break a chef’s reputation. And even in the age of Square Meal, Olive and Delicious and a cornucopia of cutting-edge foodie blogs, it’s the 100-year old Michelin Guide that still sets the standard. It’s no wonder you can feel the tension in top-class kitchens and restaurants every January, when the coveted stars are handed out – or taken away. And with more Michelin stars than your average island, it’s unsurprising that Jersey’s become such a foodie destination. With Mark Jordan at the Atlantic and Shaun Rankin at Bohemia both retaining their Michelin stars this year, and a clutch of other outstanding island restaurants celebrated in the 2011 edition, it’s never been a better time to eat out in Jersey. Local restaurants that get a thumbs up from the Michelin man include The Grill, Café Zephyr and Sirocco at the Royal Yacht Hotel, the Radisson Blu Waterfront, Victorias and Tassili at Grand Jersey, Longueville Manor, the Salty Dog Bar and Bistro, The Bass & Lobster, Suma’s and El Tico to mention just a few as well as the two Michelin-starred establishments, Ocean Restaurant at the Atlantic Hotel and Bohemia in St Helier.

And how do you get one? Ever wondered how the famous Michelin stars are awarded? Read on for Gallery’s guide to getting a star…

Ask nicely.... ...and at some stage over the next 12 months, an incognito Michelin man will visit to eat at your restaurant. You won’t know who he is though unless the tyres give it away…

Make waves... ...in a good way. Restaurants that are JHQHUDWLQJSRVLWLYHIHHGEDFNZLOOÀQG their way onto the ‘to visit’ list.

The proof is in the pudding... “You can’t get a star without quality products that are fresh, seasonal and local” explains ex-Michelin Guide editor Derek Bulmer. Food must be produced to a very high technical standard, and every course should be of the same quality.

Stay on top of your game... Don’t expect to impress on just one visit, there are typically three to six secret inspections at different times of the day and the quality has to be spot on every time.

Eleven of the island’s best-known chefs get all deep and meaningful with us and talk about life, love … and what they’d cook themselves if it was the last meal they could ever have. Their answers may surprise you.

Richard Allen 35 Executive Head Chef at Tassili, Grand Jersey

With an upbringing that centred around food - Richard’s father owned a chain of bakeries in Dorset, and his mother worked for Mary Ford as a cake decorator, it’s not surprising Richard soon decided he wanted to be a chef. From working with master chef Chueng Lu in Australia to a stint at Le Gavroche, Richard arrived at Tassili, where he’s been awarded 3 AA Rosettes and last year was shortlisted for a Hotel Catey Award for Hotel Chef of the Year. I’d share my last supper with… Thomas Keller (chef at the landmark French Laundry restaurant in the US).

When I was a kid, I thought I’d grow up to be… a Royal Marine. My fantasy dinner party guests would be… The cast from the Goonies. The strangest ingredient I’ve ever used is… Whale.

Andrew Baird 44

Executive Chef, Longueville Manor Sheffield-born Andrew Baird first started work at Longueville Manor when he was 23. Over twenty years later, and with several awards under his belt, he couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. A keen proponent of local produce, Andrew’s also a keen diver, and likes nothing more than diving for scallops himself. I’d share my last supper with… My wife Eilish and our two boys – Luke and Charlie.

Andrew’s last supper: A selection of cheeses from Longueville’s legendary cheese trolley; Stilton, Campbell Town Cheddar Vacherin Mont d’Ot, St Nectare, Green Thunder, Black Stick Blue and Shorrock Strong Bomb and a glass of his favourite red wine, Pauillac.

From freshly made sandwiches to a packed deli salad bar where you can make up your own salad, tortilla wraps or baguettes, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got your lunch wrapped. The Loaf day starts at 5am when the kitchen team start baking baguettes, chopping Jersey veg for their homemade soups and deciding what hot food to cook. Then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for the croissants to go in the oven. Pop in early enough, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll still be warm.

Choose a base of salad leaves, pasta, noodles, bread or tortilla wrap, then add a selection of deli toppings and dressings and watch as the Leaf team make your very own bespoke salad or sandwich.

Big J Burgers, bacon rolls and bangers. It’s what we do. A breakfast roll first thing in the morning, or a late-night kebab. We’re open all day, every day – cooking you pretty much whatever you want. Just ask us nicely. The griddle starts up first thing, and we don’t go home until you have. We’re perfect for those end-of-the-night chips (try the famous Big J cheesy chips for a real carb-fest!) or an easy supper when you’re feeling too lazy to cook. And don’t forget the Friday bacon roll run – you can even fax us your order straight from your desk, and it’ll be waiting for you when you come to pick it up.

SET MENU FOR LUNCH - £7.50

dim sum heaven

Mandarin Room

Jersey’s foodie annual

When you want a takeaway that’s a cut above your average chop suey, head to the Mandarin Room. The contemporary Asian restaurant and takeaway on Gloucester Street has firmly established itself as the place to go for a classier take on Chinese food. Helen Wong and her chef husband Kenny are keen proponents of local produce, and this translates into a contemporary take on classic Chinese recipes using the best Jersey produce and seafood. Try the gourmet dim sum for a real treat or a steaming bowl of won ton soup and follow it up with one of the Mandarin Room’s famous dishes the chilli beef perhaps, or the Kung Po chicken. The speciality Mongolian crispy lamb comes with pancakes and hoi sin sauce to eat ‘crispy duck’-style and there’s a great noodle menu including Japanese-style Udon noodle dishes. Takeaways come in generous sizes and taste freshly-made. reservations/orders
