Appetite. Your versatile guide to Jersey food and drink

Welcome to the go-to guide for those looking to eat out (and in) on the island of Jersey. This, our ninth, is the biggest edition to date*; a comprehensive and inclusive guide to the island’s gastronomic offerings all categorised and presented in a simple to follow manner. This year we’ve also included a whole host of amazing features written by some local folks who know a thing or two about tasty eats and a new section focussing on island attractions that also have great eateries. It’s incredible that our little island has such a rich and varied selection of restaurants, beach cafés and food stops. Pick somewhere new and get out there! In a world of digital, Appetite is the only food guide to keep on your coffee table if you’re local or rucksack if you’re a Jersey visitor. Even though our website will provide a handy reference guide on your portable device, flicking is faster than clicking.

Bon Appetit! *we seem to say that every year but really, this one is massive!

JOHN GARTON Chief Executive, Genuine Jersey Products Association While some members are vital in helping preserve Jersey’s heritage and traditions, others are pushing the boundaries of change – developing new techniques in farming and food production, or exploring new markets


Finance may be the backbone of the Jersey economy, but agriculture is at its heart. The food we produce in the island is the foundation for so many things that we value, from our cuisine to our cultural identity, our tourist industry, and even the look of the Island itself. Genuine Jersey is a link between producers and consumers, connecting the people who grow, rear, or make the food we eat with the visitors and residents who choose it in Jersey’s restaurants and bars, pubs, cafes, and hotels, farm shops, and supermarkets. Over the past 16 years, Genuine Jersey has attracted membership from a wide range of areas – not just from food but also crafts, arts, and other businesses who support the organisation. While some members are vital in helping preserve Jersey’s heritage and traditions, others are pushing the boundaries of change – developing new techniques in farming and food production, or exploring new markets. They all contribute to making the Genuine Jersey Mark a byword for the best the island has to offer, ensuring businesses large and small are proud to be associated with our distinctive red logo.

www.appetite.je

Our 170+ members include both new businesses and businesses that have existed in Jersey for many years. As well as the help we can give promoting individual members, all members get the benefit of being part of a larger organisation that stands up for the interests of local produce, and local business. Members like this include Woodside Farm. Run by the Gallichan family, Woodside Farm has moved from a small-scale, dairy and arable grower, into one of the island’s largest producers of vegetables. The new packing house allows the farm to consolidate crops from smaller producers, to supply shops and restaurants around the island, and then transport produce on to Guernsey, the UK, and even to the US. Jersey Sea Salt is a new business that successfully combines traditional practices (salt making) with a modern twist (gorgeous packaging), to make our local salt an affordable luxury or a trendy gift for Jersey and international markets.

Liberation Brewery is another Genuine Jersey member with a long history, producing beer in Jersey for over 100 years. The award-winning ales, and public houses, offer a true taste of the island, while local brewing ensures the beers taste much fresher than imported products. Flour is a key ingredient for most cakes, and good ingredients are the driving force behind one of Jersey’s newest bakers. Founded by Kirstie Taylor, FLOUR is one of the latest cohorts of new food businesses to join Genuine Jersey. We are also delighted to welcome the Jersey Beekeepers’ Association to Genuine Jersey. Celebrating their 100th anniversary this year, the JBKA members will be able to start using the Genuine Jersey mark on their honey to help promote what is an increasingly rare product, reminding people how special real local honey is. Genuine local produce has never had such a buzz about it!

JERSEY BEEKEEPERS’ ASSOCIATION There have been times during the last century when honey has been abundant but over the last few years, it has been increasingly difficult for our apiarists to keep the island supplied with this top quality product.

JERSEY BEEKEEPERS ASSOCIATION


While Jersey’s flowers delight us with their floral displays, they also delight Jersey’s honey bees by producing the sweet nectar that they turn into Jersey honey. It is our local beekeepers who bring that honey to our tables. Set up at the height of the First World War in 1917 the Jersey Beekeepers’ Association (JBKA) has been helping the island’s beekeepers maintain this ancient craft for the last 100 years. So as 2017 is a landmark year for them, they started this year’s events by becoming a recognised Jersey charity and joining Genuine Jersey. There are a number of events planned throughout the year for members and the general public which will be announced via their Facebook page “Jersey Beekeepers’ Association” and local media. There have been times during the last century when honey has been abundant but over the last few years, it has been increasingly difficult for our apiarists to keep the island supplied with this top quality product.

www.appetite.je

A spokesman for the Association said that “while we don’t struggle to sell our produce, we hope that joining Genuine Jersey will assist us in raising the awareness of the difficulties facing local honey bees and pollinators. Honey is becoming increasingly difficult to produce due to a number of factors including the Varroa mite, a parasitic mite which infests colonies, loss of habitat and inclement weather. We have recently had local sightings of the Asian Hornet which preys on honey bees and it is a question of time to see what impact this will have locally.”

of our existing members. We have a number of guest speakers visiting throughout the year who are experts in a range of honeybee topics relating to bees and pollination.” If you’d like to do your bit to encourage the bee population on the island you can plan pollinator-friendly plants in your garden, if you’re not sure what these are then simply look out for the bee symbol in garden centres and there are plentiful online resources for lists of pollinatorfriendly plants.

He went on to say that, “For our 100th year we are working on a number of projects. The association is liaising with the planning department to hopefully move forward with building a training apiary, to assist in teaching new beekeepers, as well as helping to improve and develop the skills

www.appetite.je

Favourite product from your range? Today... Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cupcake, but we are constantly designing new flavours and my favourite always changes. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be? Beef Wellington, it’s my favourite meal and if I could afford to make it every day I would.

The world’s ending at midday today, where are you going for breakfast? Tiffany’s ;) if the world is ending why not spend all your money at once. You’d have to pay me a million pounds to eat... Slugs! Although you would only have to pay me £1,000 to eat a food that I don’t like.

DAVID MILES Co-Owner, Bel Val Sea Salt We take Jersey sea water and evaporate it using only the sun to create Jersey Sea Salt. Our salt is made in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.

WWW.JERSEYSEASALT.COM


David Miles (pictured right) and Matthew Taylor create Jersey Sea Salt and are the most southerly solar salt producers in the British Isles. Being a small-scale artisan business, staying local means they can produce their sea salt in an environmentally friendly fashion, using low energy and low waste processes to turn local waters into salt crystals. Tell us about Jersey Sea Salt? We take Jersey sea water and evaporate it using only the sun to create Jersey Sea Salt. Our salt is made in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.

Favourite product from your range? Our salt and pepper infusion, we use it on almost everything. My personal favourite is using it on grilled mackerel, Jersey Royals and local salad, it’s a taste sensation.

Where can we buy your products from? Our salt is available in numerous artisan stores around the island such as; The Fresh Fish Company, La Belle Gourmande Delicatessen, Gorey Wine Cellar and Midland Stores, to name a few. Our website launched this spring too so our salt and the infusions are also available to purchase online.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be? That’s easy, fish!

What’s the best part of your job? The variety, from collecting the water in the early hours and watching the sunrise, to harvesting the salt just at the right time (this bit is hugely satisfying) and also meeting retailers and customers.

www.appetite.je

The world’s ending at midday today, where are you going for breakfast? Sumas restaurant, with a table on the balcony overlooking Gorey harbour. The perfect way to start your last day on earth.

The one gadget you can’t live without? I’d happily live without any gadget’s. You’ve got visitors over to the island where would you take them for dinner? That’s a really tough one as there are so many beautiful restaurants and eateries on the island, however, if pushed it would have to be a toss up between Longueville Manor and the Atlantic Hotel.

You’d have to pay me a million pounds to eat… Slightly controversial but it’s Parmesan cheese.

PAUL HURLEY Head Brewer, Liberation Brewery The beer world is constantly evolving and being part of a team that is always looking for new flavours, whilst maintaining consistency in quality is very satisfying.

WWW.LIBERATIONGROUP.COM/BREWERY


The Liberation Brewery, in various guises, has been a part of island life for over 140 years (situated on the Ann Street site) and since moving to a purpose built production unit at Longueville, and becoming part of the Liberation Group some nine years ago, has gone from strength to strength and in recent years has won innumerable Industry medals for its products. Tell us about Liberation Brewery? We take the best malt and choicest hops and using a mixture of experience and innovation, turn these raw materials into a great variety of beers, many of them award-winning.

Favourite product from your range? Liberation Ale. At 4% this beer is a perfect balance of maltiness and hop character that is very easy drinking and can be matched with so many different foods, especially local seafood.

Where can we buy your products? Our Liberation pubs, free trade outlets, hotels and our four different bottled beers are available from supermarkets.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be? Cheese in all its varieties, but only if I could match it with different beers! The world’s ending at midday today, where are you going for breakfast? My house surrounded by family eating a full breakfast with all the works. I love eating breakfast out but nobody does it as well as my wife.  

What’s the best part of your job? New products. The beer world is constantly evolving and being part of a team that is always looking for new flavours, whilst maintaining consistency in quality is very satisfying.

www.appetite.je

You’d have to pay me a million pounds to eat... Tripe or caviar – never seen the fascination. The one gadget you can’t live without? Very predictable but my mobile phone – now so easy to keep in touch with people and news. Makes me laugh when I think of what we had to go through in the past to achieve what we can now do in seconds. You’ve got visitors over to the island where would you take them for dinner? The Old Court House, St Aubin – stunning views, fantastic food and great beer!

CHARLES GALLICHAN Woodside Farm daffodils travel a long way, right across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America. In fact, this ever-popular traditional Spring bloom, reaches Boston - via air out of Heathrow - in about the same amount of time it takes to get them on sale in Scotland.


Charles Gallichan is the fifth generation to hold the reigns at the family farm in Trinity, since his great-great-grandfather, also Charles, started out in 1887. Today, Woodside Farms, while remaining a traditional Jersey farm, grows and exports Jersey Royals, vegetables, and flowers. In the peak growing season, it employs up to 130 workers, with the size of the workforce dropping to 50 to 60 according to the natural growing cycle, indoors and outdoors. Tell us about what you do? I am a farmer growing a wide range of vegetables and flowers on our family farm in Trinity for both the local and export markets.

What’s the best part of your job? Being outside. The fresh air, great hidden views of Jersey that you get from a few quiet fields and watching things grow.

Where can we buy your products from? Here in Jersey at the best local food wholesalers and outlets across the island (which includes our farm shop).

Favourite product from your range and how do you use it? I love potatoes, they can be used in so many great ways.

And how far do they travel? Woodside Farm daffodils travel a long way, right across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America. In fact, this everpopular traditional Spring bloom, reaches Boston - via air out of Heathrow - in about the same amount of time it takes to get them on sale in Scotland. The American market is our second biggest customer after the large UK retail multiples.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be? Fresh Jersey Royals.

You’d have to pay me a million pounds to eat... Squid….there’s just no need! The one gadget you can’t live without? Sadly, my mobile phone. I wish it was something more exciting. You’ve got visitors over to the island where would you take them for dinner? The balcony at Sumas, great food and an amazing view.

The world’s ending at midday today, where are you going for breakfast? A family field above St Catherines, sitting on a tractor mudguard. A simply stunning view.

recent years seasonality has become a buzzword in the food industry - you’ll often hear a chef speak about cooking with the seasons, changing their menus to reflect the produce that is available to them, sourcing local produce and working with local suppliers.

Eating food when it’s in season has huge benefits, it’s usually when the produce is not only at its cheapest but its freshest too, which means it’s also when its flavour is at its best. Over

We’re incredibly lucky here in Jersey to have a plethora of amazing fresh produce available on our doorsteps. More than 100 varieties of fruit, vegetables, salad leaves, herbs and organic crops are produced outdoors in fields protected by polytunnels and in glasshouses around our beautiful island. The varieties change throughout the year and are planted at different points so that we can enjoy the longest season possible.

28

One such chef is Joseph Baker, for whom it isn’t just a buzzword, seasonal produce constantly provides him with inspiration for dishes on his menu at No 10 Restaurant & Bar, Bond Street. He features in the most recent Visit Jersey ambassador video with local market trader Bill Davies and is a regular visitor to his stall Just William in the central market, where he gathers produce which has been grown by Bill and his daughter Grace on their farm in St Martin. Thanks to the clever design of the menus at No 10, and a printer tucked handily away under the counter, dishes can be added or taken away as soon as the availability of produce dictates which makes their menu truly seasonal.


We challenged Joseph to produce a dish using solely produce available to him on island during the month of March. Joseph explains "I wanted something that was, as far as possible, a simple reflection of the bounty available in Jersey at the beginning of spring. Therefore I wanted the dish to capture a spring-like sense of growth, vitality and optimism! That’s why everything on the plate was either raw or barely cooked, when vegetables are young and fresh they don't need to be tampered with. The simple spring salad really did reflect the best things I could curate from my independent local suppliers.

“That’s why everything on the plate was either raw or barely cooked, when vegetables are young and fresh they don’t need to be tampered with.”

You can see the brightly coloured rainbow chard, purple sprouting calabrese and different kales from Just William forming the basis of the salad. With the amazing courgette flowers from Three Oaks Vineries being the star of the dish. I stuffed these with a lemon scented ricotta made from local milk by the team at Classic Herd. This was served on a reduction of watercress from Colin Roche’s farm in St Clement and topped with shavings of truffle, which I have to admit isn’t from Jersey but I wanted to add a little touch of decadence." At No 10 Mediterranean influences combine with highly skilled cookery and fresh ingredients, presented beautifully and set in wonderful surroundings. A visit to No 10 Restaurant & Bar is a must and one we’re sure won’t disappoint, whether you choose to dine, enjoy a drink at the bar (where you can also eat), nip in for a quick lunch or settle in for an evening, there will always be delicious food and a friendly, relaxed welcome from the team.

We often get asked to feature the best places to go for breakfast whilst on island and although there are an abundance of amazing places we could recommend, instead we wanted to help you to build your own breakfast from locally sourced produce. Whether you’re self-catering, in an airbnb or just a local looking to feed your friends or yourself, here are just some of the places you can head to buy the ingredients to cook up your own belly busting feast. Also be sure to keep an eye out for any number of roadside stalls on your journey around the island, they’ll have ‘honesty boxes’ ready to take your cash in exchange for local produce. 30

Sausages

Farmer Jon Hackett is a well-known character around the island. Many years ago he gave up his day job and became a full time farmer at Brooklands farm. He now boasts a menagerie of animals including rare breed saddleback, oxford sandy and black pigs. All of their products are hand made in-house in their purpose-built butchery and commercial kitchen, which guarantees that every products is as fresh as possible – straight from farm to the fork! Jon retails his sausages at a variety of shops and stores around the island or you can buy direct from his farm stall which is open on Friday and Saturday’s between 9am-2pm. Me and the Farmer - Brooklands Farm, Longfield Avenue, St Brelade


Eggs

You can’t beat a fresh egg and those produced by free roaming hens here in Jersey have yolks so bright they’ll blow your mind. Fungi Delecti have a roadside stall with an honesty box selling both hen and duck eggs which have been laid on their farm in Trinity. It’s easy to miss the stall so look out for their distinctive wooden mushroom sign post on the road between Bonne Nuit and Bouley Bay. www.fungidelecti.com Fungi Delecti, La Source, Les Champs du Chemin, Rue des Platons, Trinity

Or…

Jenny Liddiard at Field Farm also sells fresh free-range eggs all year round at her farm gate, as well as ‘point of lay’ chickens and runner ducks of various breeds and colours. She also produces the most delightful pure cloudy sparkling apple juice – 100% pure juice, no added sugar or water just fizz! A fuity little addition to your breakfast perhaps. www.fieldfarmjersey.com Field Farm, Rue de la Golarde, St Lawrence

Bread

Vienna Bakery is a traditional craft bakery - where it takes almost 24 hours to make a loaf of bread and you’ll find nearly 20 variations of a French stick. Their bakery at Rue Des Prés Trading Estate at Longueville, in the parish of St Saviour, is a hive of activity seven days a week producing the hundreds of products supplied to their shop in St Helier’s Victorian Central Market and supermarkets, corner shops, hotels, restaurants and pubs across the island. www.vienna.je

Milk and butter

This is the island’s only independent dairy farm, which means you’ll be able to buy fresh milk, richly coloured butter, cream and yoghurts too. You’ll also find a well stocked farm shop which has all of your essentials for a self catering store cupboard, including a variety of meat cuts from their farm. They also sell milk and bread, so would make the perfect one stop shop for all your breakfast needs, but where’s the fun in that?!

The Blake family in Jersey have been growing tomatoes at Three Oaks Vineries Ltd for generations. Identifying a way of using up the surplus fruit Nina Blake set-up the Greenhouse Project making sauces and condiments. Currently she is using 100% surplus tomatoes sourced from the family farm and onions from Woodside Farm. You can buy her products from most farm shops and at Jersey Heritage sites too.

The tomatoes produced each year by Peter are sold locally to wholesalers, hotels and selected food outlets including The Fresh Fish Company at La Collette and they are also available directly from his nursery in Grouville.

La Belle Gourmande in St Aubin is the perfect deli to stop off and stock up on all manner of cold meats, cheeses and the best of deli delights. If you head there early on a Saturday morning you may be lucky enough to pick up some of Rich Howells exceptional sourdough. This boutique baker operates on a subscription service so his loaves are limited but insanely tasty. labellegourmande.com La Belle Gourmande, Charing Cross, St Aubin

EL Tico Beach Cantina Visit EL Tico and feel part of history. It’s Jersey’s original beach café, and possibly one of Britain’s original surf spots, hiring out boards for “surf riding” since 1948. Perched on the very edge of the beach and in the middle of one of the finest surf bays in Europe, EL Tico Beach Cantina and its in-house surf shop, The Surfyard, are a world class destination for fabulous food and everything surfing. The Cantina is a melting pot of food styles and influences from around the world, starting with great breakfast and proper Italian coffee, amazing Pad Thai, authentic curries, awesome Jersey beef burgers, Jersey crab linguine, traditional fish & chips and legendary ribs. Not forgetting a brilliant children’s menu, deserts and ice cream sundaes, including their world famous Malteser cheesecake or gluten-free chocolate brownies. The Surfyard is the only purpose built surf shop and school in the bay, which for 2017 has been extended and improved beyond recognition. Fantastic facilities, all new kit, qualified instructors and great shopping with brands like Patagonia, O’Neil, Protest, Reef, Billabong and C-Skins make The Surfyard the go-to surf spot. Tico’s, as it is affectionately known, gets very busy, but if you are prepared to wait for a table at peak times, you won’t be disappointed. Whether you are out for a swim, a surf, or simply a walk on the magnificent beach, time spent in the bay with great food, shared with friends and family is pretty special. So, after a busy day, sit back with wine in your hand, sand in your toes and a stunning sunset, it doesn’t get much better than this…

Mange Tout Mange Tout has operated from four locations across St Helier for over 20 years and this year they opened their fifth site at the Jersey War Tunnels. It’s a business built on a solid reputation for creating fresh, handmade and healthy food to go, with some of the tastiest sandwiches, salads with the finest coffee available locally. Fad diets and crazy eating plans come and go, but Mange Tout’s ethos, is simply to eat healthily, avoiding as many chemicals, flavourings and preservatives as possible. They want us to eat a balanced diet of un-processed, healthy, fresh food which doesn’t need sell by dates, as it is “made today, eaten today”. They don’t have centralised production kitchens, but make everything fresh in their shops on the day you buy it. They use traditionally baked and genuinely fresh bread, their soup is made from real vegetables, and their coffee comes directly from an award winning roaster in Milan. They also deliver breakfast and lunch trays for meetings, all over Town and a little further with notice. Just visit www.mangetout.je for more details and easy online ordering. They are also passionate about making sure they operate in the most ethical way, and ensure that their produce is as traceable as it can be, of the highest quality possible and environmentally friendly. Their packaging is mostly bio-degradable, or manufactured from recycled paper and this year, if you need a bag, they will be asking for a 5p donation to The Jersey Cheshire Home. It’s a double win, because they will use less bags, but the Cheshire Home will benefit directly with a clear donation for every bag ”sold”.

Moo Moo have been keeping it real since 2012! Their aim has been to reinvent ‘fast’ food, using mostly wholesome, nutritionally dense, local, seasonal, organic produce that helps people glow from the inside out. The folks at Moo love what they do and are passionate that Moo is much more than a generic ‘sandwich shop’, it’s an experience, a movement and in a small way part of the global food revolution. They provide health conscious yet appetising food from healthy nutritious salads, wraps, Buddha bowls and hot options to raw/ cold-press juices, super green smoothies/bowls and a variety of wholesome healthy baked treats made in store daily from muffins, flapjacks, coconut bars and brownies to cakes and raw chocolate. They also make the most amazing bagels and can help you with your caffeine hit too thanks to their fresh organic coffee, or why not mix it up and try a beautiful beetroot maca latte. Moo is run by real people with real bodies, real issues and a real love for Tequila (although very occasionally!), they know that getting addicted to the good stuff is a lifestyle not a fad! At Moo they love nothing more than blowing peoples minds by showing them that wholesome, healthy food can be both ridiculously exciting and yummy too. When you visit Moo you’re going to get a massive feel good bang for your buck and it’s not just for hipsters and hippies but for every cell in every body!

COFFEE SHOPS


Beyond our shores you’ll probably see Starbucks on every corner but not In Jersey! Over here we have more independents than chains and those with a coffee addiction, or self employed folks hunting WiFi and solace, are well catered for on the streets of St Helier. The most familiar name to visitors will be Costa, who have several locations serving the global caffeine orientated goodies you know and love, plus those great tiffin slices. If you’d like something more local then well known grinder Coopers and Co offer up a cafe at Castle Quay on the waterfront and the Mange Tout and Jersey Pottery brands are visible across town too.

Ransoms Restaurant Sarah Ransom, a qualified pâtissier, returned from New Zealand in 1990 to join the family business that David and Janet, her father and mother, established in 1966. Janet’s idea was to create a typical tearoom where you could order a simple cup of tea and a cake. Sarah however, had grander thoughts of opening a smart restaurant with waitress service. They amalgamated their ideas and today this successful combination marries ‘mothers on the go who pop in for coffee after the school run’ to ‘discerning diners who seek the freshest produce and seafood that Jersey has to offer’. Add a superb choice of the scrummiest home-made cakes and breads and you have a formula that keeps the customers coming back for more. To quote Sarah, “our menu is simple and fresh and all our dishes are cooked to order. From super-food salads to fish and chips, to Jersey beef burgers, fresh hand-dived scallops and crab and lobster salads in the summer, we try to cater for all tastes. We include several vegan and gluten-free choices on our à la carte and Sunday lunch menus. We are fully licensed and parking is free and easy.” Spend a great day out shopping in the garden centre and gift shop, top up your tan in the courtyard and dine in the restaurant. Ransoms - a family owned business which last year celebrated 50 years of trading!

EATING ISLANDWIDE From the Dolan Groups humble beginnings in the 80’s when the family purchased the Somerville Hotel – a then crumbling 2* property above St Aubin’s Harbour - it’s no wonder why its four core values of quality, integrity, personality and value for money have elevated this family owned chain to one of the most loved groups in Jersey and the only 4* hotel & restaurant chain in the Channel Islands.

With 8 bars & restaurants in some of the best locations in the island and concepts ranging from quality comfort food at the Sands Café Bar to International casual dining at the Merchant House and Refined Modern British in Tides, it’s varied array of high quality dining and drinking establishments make it clear to see why the group is a favourite for a broad spectrum of locals and tourists alike. Tides – Its flagship Restaurant & Lounge bar – has been a regular hub for islanders for well over two decades thanks to its excellent reputation for great food, fantastic personal service, decadent cocktails and unbeatable views over St. Aubin’s bay. With new Head Chef Chris Witham and Group Exec Head Chef Phillipe Maratier behind the helm, an exciting wave of fresh new menus that shy away from the 5-course marathon format of old are taking pride of place in showcasing the best seasonal produce the area has to offer. As well as a full refurbishment planned for the 2017/18 season, this is showing that Tides will continue to be a favourite for many years to come. In the Merchant house, with the ethos of ‘Keep it simple, quality ingredients speak for themselves’, Head Chef Dan Teesdale has created a delicious menu complete with Brasserie favourites made to the highest standard. A must visit for anyone travelling to St Helier. Find out more at www.dolanhotels.com

Phillipe Maratier

Dan Teesdale

Who’s been the most important culinary influence in your life? My mother was the one who peaked my interest in cooking from baking and cooking with her when I was younger.

Who’s been the most important culinary influence in your life? My first head chef and lecturer in France. He’s the one who really drove my passion in the early days and taught me the art of good food.

Who’s been the most important culinary influence in your life?: Not one person in particular but more the kitchen teams and kitchen atmosphere I’ve experienced over the years. I’m massively fond of Marco Pierre White and Tom Kerridge though. More substance over style!

Head Chef, Tides Restaurant

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten? As long as it is edible as a chef nothing should really be deemed as being weird, but maybe just appreciated for its difference.

Group Executive Head Chef

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten? Deep fried Lamb “Balls”. Not an experience that I’d like to re-visit!

What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? In my kitchen, I couldn't live without butter, garlic, thyme and salt.

What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? A good bottle of wine to compliment great food and the company of good friends

Are there any foods you just don’t like? There isn't a lot I won’t eat or don't like, but after working for years with smoked salmon I really don't have a big love for that. The way the smell stays with you is a little overbearing!

Are there any foods you just don’t like? Lamb balls…

www.appetite.je

Head Chef, Merchant House Brasserie

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten? As a chef nothing is weird! More a matter of flavour. What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? Garlic & thyme. They sit well with almost everything and add that lovely savoury edge. Are there any foods you just don’t like? Raw celery without a doubt. I tried it again recently and I just don’t get it!

The main dining room and private Bohemia rooms offer a variety of options for modern private dining. Bohemia Bar is a haven for cocktails with casual seating for fifty along with a full bar and cocktail list, and snacks available for lunch and dinner. Bohemia has held a Michelin Star since 2005.

Afternoon Tea at Bohemia

One of the UK’s top fine dining establishments

Jersey’s most celebrated bar and restaurant, Michelin starred Bohemia, is renowned for its luxurious afternoon tea. Head Pastry Chef Ellen de Jager is the mastermind behind the chic desserts and pastries at both the fine dining restaurant and Bohemia’s Afternoon Tea Collection.

118

Each afternoon tea is served with traditional sandwiches and a delicate selection of cakes and fancies, which are created using locally sourced ingredients. Ellen and the team at Bohemia create their desserts around the seasons, so the menus change regularly.


“Each afternoon tea is served with traditional sandwiches and a delicate selection of cakes and fancies, which are created using locally sourced ingredients.” Lavish treats include a mini Pumpkin and Cinnamon Pie; a Blueberry & Arabian tea sphere with Lime and Vanilla; and Pistachio Olive Oil cake with a smooth Pistachio Mousse smothered in Guanaja Chocolate. For Ellen there is a big focus on textures in puddings, such as crunchy, smooth, sharp and creamy. Presentation plays a huge role in Ellen’s creations as she believes that the customer eating experience starts with the eyes. The colourful, intricate desserts are decorated with precision with candied fruits and chocolate shards, and filled with smooth, velvety centres. www.appetite.je

Proof is in the pudding as the Michelin star restaurant was named as one of the top 10 places in the whole of the UK in which to eat pudding by the Sunday Times Food List. Each afternoon tea comes with plain and raisin scones with traditional Jersey Black Butter, Strawberry Jam and Clotted Cream. This is served with a selection of loose leaf teas and herbal infusions. Visitors to the island are lucky enough to sample a full afternoon tea from just £19.95 per person. Bohemia endeavours to offer a variety of local, fresh produce in all dishes and celebrates

seasonal fruits and vegetables. The majority of ingredients are locally sourced from the island of Jersey, while other ingredients are gathered from France. Bohemia is open for afternoon tea from Monday to Sunday, from 2.15pm until 5.30pm.

The 50-seat restaurant is a casual, relaxed space set over two floors of an iconic St Helier building on Bond Street. The warm, copper panelled basement bar is an excellent place for a pre/post-dinner drink, serving seasonally inspired cocktails, along with a great wine list, draught and craft beers. The ground floor restaurant is a clean, minimalist space that allows the food to shine. At this small, family run restaurant from Annie, Jolyon and Joseph Baker, a passion for good food, drink and company informs the way everything is done. There is an attention to detail in the design of the restaurant that all equates to a unique ambience with a timeless feel. Joe’s cooking reflects his time spent working in London, San Sebastian and Margaret River along with a deep connection to Jersey. Lunches focus on a regularly changing menu of small plates designed to share. Ideal for quick lunches. Dinner consists of a concise a la carte menu where Joe and the team’s food becomes slightly more complex and expressive. Plates are simple reflections of the ingredients they contain, most importantly full of flavour and with respect for the produce.

MAKING AN IMPRESSION

The restaurant is run by an exceptional team both front and back of house and has become a hotbed for nurturing new and upcoming talent. With renowned chef Shaun Rankin at the helm, the SR business has become a global affair with his brigade extending to new establishments in London and flying all around the world with him for private commissions. However, Jersey is where it all began and Ormer Jersey remains the flagship restaurant of the brand. It is here that chef Josh Blayney honed his skills and worked up the ranks to now become Development Chef – a prestigious and creative role.

Success in the restaurant business does not come down to one individual component; it is the synergy of all elements that can make it brilliant. This is the ethos running through the veins of Michelin-starred restaurant Ormer in St Helier. Pictured: Yukie & Josh

124

The restaurant also attracts great talent and last year welcomed award-winning Pastry Chef Yukie Kohara. Yukie has worked at prestigious venues including The Wolseley, Claridge’s Hotel in London and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Japan. She is now responsible for the creation of exquisite desserts for guests at Ormer Jersey and she designs handmade chocolates and macarons for the adjacent Don Street Deli. She is also the driving force behind Ormer’s new Pastry Masterclass, providing islanders and visitors with the opportunity to go behind the scenes in the Michelin-starred restaurant and develop their pastry skills.


Yukie Kohara

Josh Blayney

What has been the highlight of your career so far? The highlight for me is being able to work for Chef Shaun Rankin. He has given me a great opportunity to be in charge of the pastry section here at Ormer in Jersey. I feel extremely fortunate to have been awarded this challenge.

How would you describe what you do for a living? I am a development chef so every day is a school day and every day is different. I look at each day as an everevolving food progression with tasting and trying and perfecting.

Pastry Chef

Why the pastry section for you? My mother’s homemade cakes and sweets have always given me a feeling of comfort so that has inspired me to create the same feeling for others. I also like the aspect of artistic expression that can be achieved through working in pastry. What’s the kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without? An oven; I love the smell of baked cakes! What are your essential ingredients to always have in the kitchen? Herbs, chocolate and the excellent fresh dairy products available in Jersey. Who in the food world do you most admire? Pastry Chef Nicholas Patterson; I feel extremely fortunate to have met and worked for such a great Pastry Chef during the early stages of my career. I learnt all the essentials from him, not just in terms of skills but also the importance of dedication, passion and consistency. What dish are you most proud of in Ormer? I have put a lot of effort into designing new dishes that are exciting for Ormer’s diners. I am particularly proud of the items I have created for the set lunch menu that changes on a weekly basis. Delivering dishes that use fresh and seasonal ingredients gives me great pleasure.

Group Development Chef

Who’s been the culinary influence in your life? Pierre Gagnaire due to his style, his concept on flavours and the visual representation of food. I am also inspired by his vision towards food evolution and progression. As a Development Chef, you must try a lot of things, what’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? Probably Jerk Style Chicken Feet in the Caribbean. Do you try out dishes on your family and friends? No not really, the best time for developing dishes is in the kitchen bouncing ideas off the other chefs. Feedback from the team helps me to fine-tune flavours and perfect the final presentation of the dish. What are you working on right now? A conceptual starter using salmon, bourbon and smoked honey with a lime dressing. Describe yourself in three words? Creative, passionate and energetic.

What attributes do you need to have to do what you do? Curiosity and creativity; to have the curiosity not just in pastry but in everything that makes me feel excited and to have the creativity to express this. www.appetite.je

Beautifully Swedish Born in Sweden, Rek-order-lig (as it is pronounced) was the labour of love of Swedish married couple Anders & Helén a little over 20 years ago. Today, Rekorderlig Cider is a truly global brand sold in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, China, Hong Kong and Singapore along with the wonderful Channel Islands where it sees the highest sales per capita globally! Whether you are drinking a Rekorderlig in Jersey, New York, Melbourne or Capetown, every drop is still made in a sleepy Swedish town called Vimmerby, the same place it has been made for over two decades. The ciders use the spring water from one of Europe’s most accredited natural springs, also located in Vimmerby, which is combined with apples or pears to produce the fine range of cider products.

Perfect Serve

The Perfect Serve ritual starts with a cold glass or pitcher filled with ice to which the cider is added, then garnished with citrus and fresh fruits to balance the sweetness and overall flavour profile.

Start the Swedish Way

This summer Rekorderlig is inviting consumers to ‘Start the Swedish Way’ by enjoying their favourite moments with a perfect serve of Rekorderlig. Whether it is treating yourself to a nice brunch, an after work drink with friends or enjoying a picnic spread, Rekorderlig Cider is the perfect refreshment to any social occasion.

“Whether you are drinking a Rekorderlig in Jersey, New York, Melbourne or Capetown, every drop is still made in a sleepy Swedish town called Vimmerby, the same place it has been made for over two decades.” Rekorderlig Cider was born in Sweden but is loved worldwide. It is the perfect juxtaposition of progression and tradition, of dependability and innovation and of Sweden and now the rest of the world. Rekorderlig Cider - Beautifully Swedish.

STEVE SMITH Head Chef Bohemia


How would you describe what you do for a living? I cook excellent, simply prepared food. Who’s been the culinary influence in your life? Too many to mention, pretty much anyone who I have worked with, alongside or for, have had an influence. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Powdered seaweed with Nugatine Ice-cream… it’s the only thing I have ever failed to eat. Do you try out dishes on your family and friends? No. What’s the modern kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without? A good value juicing machine. What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? Salt.

If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why? Sorry but you wouldn’t see me interviewing for a music reality show any time soon... but I do like Coldplay.

“I cook excellent, simply prepared food.” Who in the food world do you most admire? Raymond Blanc, Phil Howard and any chef who has managed to be at the top of their profession for 10 years or more. Would you rather have fingers as long as your legs or legs as long as your fingers? Haha, I’m happy with my current proportions, thank you!

Are there any foods you just don’t like? I’m not a massive fan of squid and octopus.

MARCIN CIECHOMSKI Executive chef La Chaire


How would you describe what you do for a living? I'm living the dream, cooking is my life. Who’s been the culinary influence in your life? My cousin Robert. He introduced me to the industry and helped me develop my skills. Thanks to him for that! What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Once in France in the Champagne region I tried a tripe sausage. Very smelly but apparently a delicacy. I'll probably think twice about doing it again though. Do you try out dishes on your family and friends? Always, although most of the time it’s my colleagues from work, but if it’s desserts it’s my wife. She'll always find a missing ingredient. What’s the modern kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without? There are a few gadgets but I think right now it'd be my dehydrator. What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? Without a doubt, it would be vanilla, chocolate, and butter.

If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why? Definitely a better chef than a singer but if I had to choose a song it will be Hakuna Matata, simply because it is one of my son’s favourite songs and I sing it with him all the time.

“I’m living the dream, cooking is my life.” Who in the food world do you most admire? There are so many chefs I admire like the Roux family, Phil Howard from The Square or Michael Cain but If I had to choose it would be Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley and one of the most well-known pastry chefs, Antonio Bachour from St.Regis Miami. Would you rather have fingers as long as your legs or legs as long as your fingers? Definitely fingers as long as legs. Otherwise using the ladders in the kitchen would take forever and I definitely don’t have time for that.

Are there any foods you just don’t like? I eat everything, I'm always looking for new flavour combinations and ideas.

How would you describe what you do for a living? Cooking is my passion. Working in a kitchen is like survival school. It’s manual labour and intellectual work. Being a chef is not only a job, it is a state of mind. I love what I do and that’s the most important thing. Who’s been the culinary influence in your life? My eldest brother. His passion for cooking has a huge influence on me. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Surströmming (pickled herring) from Sweden. A fermentation process of at least six months gives the lightly-salted fish a charismatically strong smell and somewhat acidic taste. Do you try out dishes on your family and friends? Yes, of course. I am always trying out dishes at home for my family and friends, but I also experiment a lot with my colleagues, as part of the Seymour Hotel Group we share many ideas and recipes and we learn from each other. What’s the modern kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without? Thermomix because it’s innovative and multifunctional. What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? I love using herbs straight out of The Greenhills garden. The fresher the better! www.appetite.je

Are there any foods you just don’t like? I am yet to find one! I love to discover new flavours and experiment with different foods. If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why? U2 - beautiful day. I’ve had a lot of practice singing this song in the kitchen!

“ Working in a kitchen is like survival school. It’s manual labour and intellectual work. Being a chef is not only a job, it is a state of mind.” Who in the food world do you most admire? All chefs that care about their kitchens and the food they serve, also because of their outstanding work and their constant devotion to this. Would you rather have fingers as long as your legs or legs as long as your fingers? I can’t image the food I serve looking very good if the dishes were prepared with fingers as long as my legs - So, I would have to choose legs as long as my fingers – with some very long stilts!

BEDE CORR Chef Lazin Lizard


How would you describe what you do for a living? I would say my job is mainly fun with a little stress thrown in for good measure. Who’s been the culinary influence in your life? One of the first and most important would have to be my grandma Bell Woodhouse, she was always making great cakes and let me help whenever I was at her house, my love of baking started there. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? It has to be a 19-day old duck foetus, it’s a local delicacy in the Philippines and I just had to try it. Do you try out dishes on your family and friends? I like to try new dishes out on my family, but I have to admit I like to be cooked for when I’m not working, it’s a real treat! What’s the modern kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without? There’s nothing that I couldn’t live without in the kitchen, a chef should always be able to adapt.

Are there any foods you just don’t like? I like just about everything but I really hate capers! If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why? “I did it my way” by Frank Sinatra, because that’s the way a-ha a-ha I like it.

“I would say my job is mainly fun with a little stress thrown in for good measure.” Who in the food world do you most admire? The other chefs in my kitchen, as they’re able to put up with me and my choice of music. Would you rather have fingers as long as your legs or legs as long as your fingers? If I had to choose one I’d say fingers as long as my legs, because I think it would get very uncomfortable having little legs.

What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? I would have to say salt and pepper they go in almost everything, good seasoning is essential.

ANDREW SODDY Executive Chef L’Horizon


How would you describe what you do for a living? Exciting, fun and creative combined with being stressful, hard work and long hours Who’s been the culinary influence in your life? Marco Pierre White, Anton Mosimann and Willi Elsener. These three great chefs have given me so much insight and knowledge over the years. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Working around the world on cruise ships I‘ve seen and eaten some strange and maybe disgusting foods, but the weirdest must be monkey brains in Indonesia. Do you try out dishes on your family and friends? Yes, as my wife is vegetarian I get to create new dishes for us, trying to move away from the stereotypical dishes you find. What’s the modern kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without? My hands, closely followed by a Thermomix. It’s a great blender/ mixer that I use to blitz my purées and soups down to a silky texture. What are your essential ingredients, the things you couldn’t live without? Ginger, I adore ginger and I’m growing it in the garden at home along with garlic and onions. These three items are a great base to a lot of my cooking.

www.appetite.je

Are there any foods you just don’t like? Not really, due to having to taste pretty much everything and anything. But and it’s a big but, sweetcorn nibs do nothing for me; they are plain, boring and remind me of my youth fishing on the canal in Cheshire for carp. If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why? Crazy by Gnarls Barkley, just sums up life as a chef.

“Working around the world on cruise ships I‘ve seen and eaten some strange and maybe disgusting foods, but the weirdest must be monkey brains in Indonesia.” Who in the food world do you most admire? Marco Pierre White, he is a great man, great chef and a great mentor. Would you rather have fingers as long as your legs or legs as long as your fingers? Well if my fingers were as long as my legs, I would just drop everything, plus trying to use my chef’s knife would be a disaster. If my legs were as long as my fingers, please don’t put things on the top shelf!

Who’s been the culinary influence in your life? My wife… She makes and organises the best meals and parties for family and friends, they’re about both the food and the company. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? Not eaten, but I have drunk Poncha a traditional Madeiran alcoholic drink made from sugar, honey, lemon rind and various juices.

“I’ve worked here for 20 years now. It’s more than just a living.” Who in the food world do you most admire? It would have to be Abbie Hosegood.

Throughout the world there are dishes I have tried that are unique to different cultures, countries and customs and although they may seem weird it’s those that are the most delicious and you want to try again or recreate when home. Do you try out dishes on your family and friends? Yes regularly, they really enjoy trying new dishes and flavours with the influences of the countries I have visited and worked in and the new ingredients and produce I am lucky to be introduced to. What’s the modern kitchen gadget you couldn’t live without? I’d have two; my Vac Pac and Thermomix.

Are there any foods you just don’t like? Pork belly. It’s just not for me. If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why?

be my take on ‘Love is all around you’ by ‘The Troggs’ released in the 60’s and covered by Wet, Wet, Wet in the 90’s. I love the song and I’m old enough to remember it! Who in the food world do you most admire? Marco Pierre White – I’ve read his amazing life story and I’d love to meet him.

Fingers as long as my legs! I’d struggle in the kitchen with three-inch legs and I used to play football in the second division of the Bulgarian league so long fingers would have helped me in goal!

La Cantina

Cocorico

Many people these days adopt a gluten-free diet in the same way they might take up a new gym membership, because of the perceived health benefits. But there are over 1,000 registered celiacs in Jersey who are “gluten free because they have to be” and eating something containing gluten can have serious consequences for their immediate and long term health. A Jersey resident set up the “Gluten free friend” Instagram account in July 2016 in order to share the best, celiac-friendly, gluten-free experiences and delights from the places they have visited in Jersey and on their travels. The approach is “vigilant but adventurous” helping to share with celiacs and restaurateurs that gluten-free need not be fun-free. Here are just a few of the GFF recommendations;

168

33 Broad Street, St Helier T: 866607 Buckwheat does not contain wheat (let’s just clear that one up) therefore the galettes at Cocorico are GF. Score.  Celiacs can pretty much run amok with the most tantalising of salad options, baked potatoes, and those gorgeous galettes.  The puritanically French approach to the macarons means they are GF too, but back to those salads: wow. www.cocoricojersey.com

West Park, 7-9 Pierson Road, St Helier T 724988 Finding good gluten free pizza is like the holy grail for celiacs. Some of the big chains promise lots and deliver bland substitutes.  La Cantina were one of the first restaurants to indicate GF items on their menus.  More importantly, their gluten free pizza is on another level of gorgeousness; the thin and crispy bases with your choice of Genuine Jersey toppings covered in gooey Italian mozzarella are to die for. There are a number of other GF items on the menu.  I just can’t stop ordering the pizza! www.lacantina.co.uk


Bohemia

Green Street, St Helier T: 880588 Michelin-starred gluten free meal? Bohemia has it covered.  A basket of three different types of GF rolls arrives before dinner is served.  This NEVER happens to me anywhere else in the world.  Every Bohemia dish can be amended to cater for celiacs. The pescatarian tasting menu involves a crab and custard tart and a salt baked celeriac with quail egg, eel and morel; they were fabulous. Bohemia is high on my list of favourite gluten free experiences.  The restaurant team, specifically Dimitri, are brilliant and tell you how your dish was amended to be GF so you feel reassured and pretty special. www.bohemiajersey.com www.appetite.je

Rozel Bay Tearoom La Brecque du Nord, Trinity T: 867150 An incredible treat for celiacs and Marie at Rozel Bay bakes all of the GF cakes herself.  Her light-as-air Victoria sponge and seriously good scones are wonderful, but make haste as the GF cakes run out quickly on a Sunday afternoon.  Gluten free Scottish breakfast and sandwiches are also on the menu as is sitting on the little sun terrace in the summer.  They even bake gluten free cakes to order and deliver them.  I have “faked it” with the banoffee pie for many a dinner party. www.rozelbaytearoom.co.uk

La Belle Gourmande

St. Aubins T: 888252 My favourite place for brunch. A number of dishes can be altered to be GF, my particular favourite is the smashed avocado (although Instagram is quickly becoming avo-gram) with slow roasted tomato, feta and harissa oil on GF toast.   They also do GF chocolate fondues #justsaying. Some absolutely stunning GF items in the deli shop. www.labellegourmande.com

Unawatuna

8 Caledonia Place, St Helier T: 888430 Nearly the entire menu is GF in this Sri Lankan restaurant. Think spicy marinated chicken with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and clove (“Kukul Mas”) beetroot vegetable curry and shredded coconut and green chilli salad. This restaurant has loads of vegan and veggie options too. www.unawatuna.je

INSIDER TIPS FOR VEGETARIANS... Once upon a time vegetarians had only a few bland dishes to choose from on most restaurant menus, but such limitations have all but disappeared in most eateries. Gone are the days when veggies had to endure yet another vegetable lasagne or over cooked mushroom risotto.

WORDS Selina Jones

Every veggie worth their chickpeas knows there is no need to compromise on taste with a well created vegetarian menu. Selina Jones has been a vegetarian for over 30 years and here are a few of her favourite places whose veggie offerings promise to rewire your thinking and there’s not a bland mung bean or rubbery piece of tofu in sight.

Best Brekkie out of town…. The Hungry Man, The clue is in the name, HUNGRY man.

Go hungry, the portions are generous. This casual little harbour-side cafe enjoys a legendary status amongst locals, it’s a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by. For me they make the best veggie breakfast roll in Jersey, no rubbery tasteless veggie food here. If you have room try the mega hot chocolate marshmallow mountain - it’s magnificent! They also serve amazing veggie burgers and of course have a huge selection for meat eaters too, including locally caught crab sandwiches. They also have a fabulous selection of homemade cakes, all served with a friendly smile.

Coco Rico

A charming café which offers good honest home cooked French food, everything is lovingly freshly made that day. My personal favourite is their thin French tart, perfectly buttery and crisp pastry with a generous topping of goats cheese and mixed veg served with a choice of one of the lightly dressed salads on the side. If you have time then eat in, the mis-matched crockery, handpainted chairs and quirky interior add to the ambience if you need something delicious on the run they also do takeaway.

33 Broad Street, St Helier

Whatever the occasion, in town…

n… Whatever the occasion, out of tow

The Salty Dog

The Green Olive

Tucked away on a quiet lane in St Helier it offers excellent food in a friendly and intimate atmosphere, at very fair prices. Everything is lovingly made with inspiration drawn from the chef’s travels around the world. The menu is an exciting fusion of flavours, many dishes having a Mediterranean or Asian influence. The vegetarian dishes pack some serious punch in the flavour stakes, I can recommend the oven baked samosa bursting with Rendang curry, on a bed of spiced dhal and topped with a cooling cumin scented yoghurt. There is also a good selection of dishes made with locally caught fish and all but red meat if you happen to be dining with a non-veggie.

Set right in the centre of the picturesque harbour in St Aubins. The food is a wonderful mix of flavours, both traditional and exotic, with the emphasis on locally sourced produce and beautiful presentation. The full a la carte veggie menu has some inventive vegetarian choices, including some amazing curries from Thai to SriLankan. I would also recommend the grilled Halloumi kebab served with a delicious hazelnut and apple jam, make sure you save room for their gooey Jersey black butter and banana toffee pudding, pure indulgence and worth every calorie.

And now for something special…

Value for Veggies... Cafe Jac

For a substantial sized portion that’s great value for money and freshly cooked then head to the casual Café Jac at the Jersey Arts Centre. If you are watching your calories then try one of their great selection of colourful vibrant superfood salads or vitamin-packed fresh juices. Other favourites to tempt your taste buds include the veggie Nasi Goreng or Pad Thai. Their changing monthly specials always feature at least one delicious seasonal veggie option too. Enjoy breakfast or brunch here too, breakfast burritos, the veggie monty breakfast or a stack of homemade pancakes, choices... choices…

Phillips Street, St Helier

Get your LBD out and head to Banjo

It is a European-style grand brasserie, set in a restored former Victorian Gentleman’s club. With stylish décor, a cool ambiance and an amazing cocktail bar; I would suggest the passion fruit mojito, the perfect cocktail to start your evening. The everchanging menu usually offers at least three imaginative yet unpretentious veggie choices, the cauliflower and lentil curry with crispy cauliflower fritters, fragrant rice ,and mini poppadoms is seriously delicious and the portion sizes are generous and won’t leave you feeling hungry at the end of the night, you know what I mean! To end your night try the decadent dark chocolate bomb, as the hot chocolate sauce is poured over, the bomb tantalisingly melts, an unforgettable dessert.

Don’t let the stature of this little health food hub fool you, what it lacks in size it makes up for in character, creativity and serious flavour. If you like your food organic, your juice cold pressed and your rap gangster then go no further. Ready to grab chia pots, noodle salads, juices and organic coffee to go, it’s the lunch stop of the locals. Offering the most unique menu from algae and almond ‘mylk shakes’ to smoothie bowls topped with bee pollen, these nutrition mavericks were also the first to take the plunge into bone broth. Everything that’s served up is delicious, made with a lot of love and all the nutritional knowledge you could ask for by the passionate staff. The ethos at MOO doesn’t just emanate from their insanely ‘fresh to death’ food, the energy in this pick up place leaves you feeling king of the crop before you’ve even got the wheatgrass in you.

If it can be juiced, blended, shot, squeezed or pulped you’ll find it at Barannes health store and juice bar. With two stores in St Helier, they’ve got our streets well quenched with their delicious juices, new smoothie bowls and healthy snacks. As advocates of health beginning from the inside out, not only do they specialise in nutrifying juices but they’ll also serve up guidance on their extensive range of vitamins, minerals, herbal probiotics, gluten free and vegan friendly supplements on offer. Try out their ‘Flu shot’ and ‘Winter Reviver’ juice full of the good stuff to boost the immune system, stifle the sniffles and make juicing so much more than just crushing a carrot.

Unawatuna You can expect a warm welcome from Jersey’s only Sri Lankan restaurant. Unawatuna offers you a relaxed and informal dining experience in their Sri Lankan inspired environment in the heart of St Helier. Whilst Chef Sudu’s authentic recipies combine local Jersey produce with Sri Lankan specialities. Bringing a slice of Sri Lanka, and the cuisine he loves, to foodies around the island Sudu is armed with his mother’s hand blended curry powers, which she blends and then sends over to the island once a month. He learned the majority of his cooking skills at his mother’s side helping her to prepare family meals at home in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. Since then he has developed these skills working alongside other chefs and on his own (with the occasional call to his mother for tips). Sri Lankan cuisine is a very healthy diet with the staple foods being rice and pulses. Many of the dishes were originally created for their health benefits and these foods are commonly used in Sri Lankan cooking to this day. The majority of Sri Lankan’s are Buddhist and a large percentage are vegetarians and therefore many Sri Lankan dishes are vegetable based. When preparing a meal for her family a Sri Lankan mother would ensure she served a balanced meal consisting of a selection of vegetarian dishes, (optional meat/fish dish) and rice. This is the way Sudus mother always prepared his meals and he recommends you choose your dishes from the menu in this way too.

A changing cast of individual characters over time gives the Central Market in St Helier part of its charm - they all know each other and many of their regular customers too which all adds to the friendly banter. It can be chilly in winter, despite the addition of some windbreaks along the railings, so the stallholders wrap up well - hats and mittens are in evidence, and no doubt there are hidden thermal layers too!

by its hard-working fishmongers. Both the Beresford and Central Markets have cafĂŠs and fast, fresh food counters, and naturally, there are a number of pubs, wine bars and restaurants in the vicinity.

The more modern Beresford Market (or Fish Market as it is more commonly known) is justly popular for its high-quality produce and the atmosphere generated

We asked these market traders:

Market Opening Hours:

Monday to Saturday 07:30 - 17:30 (but closes at 14:00 on Thursdays)
