Taste Jersey 2023

Showcasing The Best Island Produce

In association with Luxury Jersey Hotels, Taste Jersey returns for the third year from 23 March to 9 May 2023. March 2019 saw the launch of Taste Jersey through a partnership between Luxury Jersey Hotels and the Jersey Evening Post with the aim of showcasing the best of island food and drink.


Jersey’s land and sea offer such an abundance of excellent produce, from seafood to dairy to Jersey Royal potatoes and more. For a small island, Jersey offers far more than its share of local delicacies. In Cafe Zephyr there is a strong seafood element to Executive Chef, Inaka Weerasinghe’s menu with produce such as oysters, scallops, crab and lobster all on offer. We are extremely lucky to be able to access such fresh produce here in Jersey and our menu in Cafe Zephyr really showcases this.


‘The crabs, oysters and scallops are so fresh, they are incredible. When I was working in Dubai, we used to serve Jersey oysters but they had travelled thousands of miles to reach us. It was a similar story in London, where you might be lucky enough to get some fish on the day it was caught but you would often have to wait until the next day. Here, though, the produce only travels a couple of miles. The trawlers dock at Victoria Pier and, even if you walked to the hotel from the boat, it would only take ten minutes to get the fish into the kitchen.’ – Executive Chef, Inaka Weerasinghe


Exciting dishes that you will find on our Taste Jersey menu include Rockefeller Scallops, Jersey Seafood Linguine and Half Grilled Lobster. You can also enjoy Jersey Oysters 3 ways; Crispy oysters, pear, citrus mayo and fennel salad, Rockefeller oysters & Fresh with lemon.


What makes the Jersey Oysters so special? 

‘The Island has the third-largest tidal range in the world, which means that the oysters are out of the water for up to 12 hours per day, which strengthens them. When you combine that with the clear waters, warm temperatures and sunshine, you get a wonderful firm fish. Scallops benefit in a similar way and, while we may not have the biggest versions in the world, they are definitely among the sweetest that you will find.’

Sirocco Taste Jersey Beef

Restaurant Sirocco will be offering a five course tasting menu, designed to show off as many local products as possible.

Head Chef, Steve Walker, has taken inspiration from land and sea. A few highlights from his tasting menu include ‘slow-cooked Jersey beef cheek sitting on a bed of nettle and marrowbone risotto’ plus local ‘grey mullet served with smoked eel and pickled black garlic’.

Speaking about local grey mullet, Steve says “it is a beautiful fish, very similar to seabass and is present in droves around the island making it a sustainable alternative to some of the more commonly overfished species”
