Eat Jersey Returns in 2019 for a Gourmet Celebration
12 December 2018
Eat Jersey Food Festival will return to The Atlantic Hotel, Jersey from 22nd to 23rd March 2019. Executive Chef Will Holland will be joined by a line-up of acclaimed chefs from Jersey and Britain to celebrate the finest island produce and dining.
The gourmet weekend offers diners the chance to join two events at The Atlantic’s Ocean Restaurant. On Friday 22nd March, Will Holland will be joined by a brigade of notable chefs from across Britain. They will create a spectacular five course menu of dishes inspired by local ingredients, served with a paired wine flight.
At this event, guests will enjoy dishes from:
- Lee Smith, Head Chef at Samphire, Jersey
- Paul Leonard, Head Chef at Burlington Restaurant at The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa, North Yorkshire
- Chris Underwood, Head Pastry Chef at Frog by Adam Handling, Frog Hoxton and Belmond Cadogan, London
- Richard Davies, Executive Chef at Calcot Manor, Tetbury
- Adam Reid, Chef at The French, Manchester
On Saturday 23rd March, Ocean embraces ‘Social Saturday’, an exclusive pop-up restaurant for one day only in partnership with the renowned Social Eating House, London. Will Holland will be joined by Chef Patron Paul Hood for a collaborative ‘four-hands’ menu of dishes for lunch and dinner service. Guests may choose between four, six and eight course menus. Wine flights will be available, expertly paired by The Atlantic’s sommelier team.
Ingredients featured throughout Eat Jersey will be sourced from the land and waters surrounding Jersey. Minimising food miles, the menu will highlight the freshest seafood and vegetables, most tender meats and creamiest of dairy products available on the island.
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.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the event, Patrick Burke, owner and managing director of The Atlantic Hotel, said: “When we founded Eat Jersey in 2015, it was with a desire to celebrate the exceptional produce found on our beautiful island, as well as the remarkable dining it offers. As we plan for Eat Jersey 2019, we are excited to welcome another talented line-up of chefs who will demonstrate their expertise in a series of menus which are sure to delight. We are proud to continue to help place Jersey on the gourmet map.”
