48 hours in Jersey for a foodie…
Day 1: Browse vibrant local markets.
Wander around the historic Central Markets which are bursting to the brim with colour, character and local produce – they have served the community for over 200 years. Why not head to La Bouche for brunch where they utilise Jersey’s finest organic produce. You can also admire the master bakers at Vienna Bakery as they prepare their goods in the bakery station, then buy some to take with you for your BBQ or picnic. Walk directly across the road from the Central Market to the Fish Market where you can purchase Jersey lobsters, oysters and crab fresh from the pot.
Go foraging with Kazz from Wild Adventures and discover Jersey’s wild side. Let Kazz show you wild, edible and medicinal plants using his natural navigation skills then learn how to make cordial using plants and trees and the ancient art of creating fire by friction. A magical experience.
Cosy up at The Old Smugglers Inn.
The best pubs always have colourful heritage. The Old Smugglers Inn is only a short stagger away from the sand at Ouaisné. It serves a good selection of real ales, but these days with fewer pirates and more daily specials are on the menu.
Day 2: Indulge at The Hungry Man.
Marshmallow mountains, ping pong and pirates…. me hearties. The Hungry Man kiosk at Rozel doesn’t just serve great bacon rolls, you can indulge in an enormous ‘marshmallow mountain’ hot chocolate, topped with squirty cream, white chocolate buttons, sprinkles and – of course – marshmallows.
Stop off for Jersey Dairy ice-cream.
Heading west you’ll discover the iconic La Corbière Lighthouse. It’s not just the architecture of this striking white lighthouse that draws the eye. It’s also the location – towering over Jersey’s south-western corner, flanked by rocks and reached by a causeway. Also happens to be one of the top spots to enjoy a Jersey ice cream!
Number 10 Bar & Restaurant celebrates local, seasonal produce. Owner and chef Joseph Baker is a regular on the BBC’s Great British Menu and this family run restaurant and bar packs a gastro punch. Try the fried Jersey rock oyster with last summer’s hot sauce or the barbecued Jersey X Angus with Jersey asparagus. Totally fabulous.
