Eat Jersey Food Festival 2020
Renowned chefs unite for a gourmet celebration
The Eat Jersey Food Festival returns to The Atlantic Hotel from 12 to 14 March 2020. In an extra special year marking The Atlantic’s 50th anniversary, this celebratory three day event will see the hotel’s Executive Chef Will Holland joined by a stellar line-up of renowned chefs. Three distinctive events will highlight Jersey’s finest produce and dining.
On Thursday 12 March, an outstanding brigade of chefs will collaborate to create a five course dining experience with sommelier pairings. Joining Will Holland on the night will be:
- Lee Westcott, Chef Patron at Pensons at the Netherwood Estate, Worcestershire
- Simon Hulstone, Chef Owner at The Elephant, Torquay
- Joe Baker, Chef Owner at Number 10, Jersey
- William Curley, Patissier Chocolatier Owner at William Curley
On Friday 13 March, The Atlantic will welcome Daniel Clifford, Chef Patron of the two Michelin-starred restaurant, Midsummer House in Cambridge, for a one off event. As one of the UK’s leading and most creative chefs, Daniel has his own style of cooking which focuses on allowing ingredients to shine for their individual worth.
On Saturday 14 March, diners will enjoy a pop-up chef collaboration between Kuba Winkowski and Will Holland, who will be joined by his sous chef Adam Braithwaite. Formerly of Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and The Feathered Nest, Kuba was awarded the title of National Chef of the Year 2019. In August 2019, he turned his attention to his new project Kubarn which is focused on a small plate concept using ingredients sourced exclusively from local farmers.
International charity Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust will again be the Festival’s philanthropic partner. Headquartered at Jersey Zoo, Durrell has a mission of saving species from extinction and focuses on the most threatened species in the most threatened places. Through their work, at the zoo and in the wild their aim is for more diverse, beautiful and resilient natural landscapes in which species can thrive and people can enjoy a deeper connection with nature. To date, The Atlantic Hotel has raised more than £20,000 in support of Durrell.
