The 1st October sees the start of the 2013 Tennerfest event with an anticipated 184 Jersey and Guernsey restaurants (the majority in Jersey) signing up. For six weeks they’ll be showing off their culinary expertise across varied cuisine from traditional English recipes to French, Italian, Chinese and Indian and a nix of establishments from restaurants to bistros, cafés and gastro pubs. The menus will be available from the 26th September so check out what’s on offer.
The aim is to ensure visitors experience a great meal for a great price. The concept of Tennerfest, which started 16 years ago was that you could enjoy an all inclusive meal for a tenner. This is still the case today although there are now a range of alternatives at different prices – that’s inflation I’m afraid but you can still eat for a tenner if you so wish. Other menus will cost £12.50, £15 & £17.50 and £20 so still great value and an excellent choice.
Most of the produce used is all local to the island. After all Jersey is renowned for its great fruit and vegetables, such as Jersey Jewel tomatoes and Jersey Royal potatoes, as well as other foods such as dairy – we all know and love the doe-eyed Jersey cows but have you tried Jersey Black butter?
