Eat Jersey Food Festival 2016 to unite renowned chefs in a gourmet island celebration

From Thursday 3 to Sunday 6 November 2016, Executive Head Chef Mark Jordan will be joined for a second year by a prestigious line-up of renowned chefs from the Channel Islands and Britain in a celebration of the gourmet produce and fine-dining in Jersey.


Over the course of four days, diners can choose to attend four fine-dining gastronomic events at The Atlantic Hotel’s Michelin starred Ocean Restaurant, as well as a relaxed beachside feast at sister restaurant Mark Jordan at the Beach.


On Thursday 3 and Friday 4 November, Mark Jordan and teams of visiting chefs will create five course menus of locally inspired dishes, with paired wines from Head Sommelier Richard Burton. Ocean Restaurant will be extending the celebrations into the weekend this year with an exclusive pop up restaurant on Saturday 5 November in partnership with Outlaw’s at The Capital. A collaborative menu of beautifully crafted seafood dishes will be available for both lunch and dinner service.

In addition, Mark will be joined by Jarek Nowakowski, newly appointed Head Pastry Chef at The Atlantic Hotel.


Guests will also have the opportunity to visit and meet the producers of the ingredients they will be enjoying and to track the minimal food miles on the island from coast and countryside to plate with behind the scenes access to key suppliers.


An exclusive ‘Lobster and Burger’ dining event at Mark Jordan at the Beach rounds off Eat Jersey 2016 on Sunday 6 November. Situated on the shoreline with breath-taking coastal views, the beachside bistro will showcase Mark Jordan’s signature Jersey beef burger and freshly caught lobster to guests in a relaxed and welcoming setting.
