Limited tickets still available for top chef event
Wednesday 4 November 08:45
There are still limited tickets available for the inaugural Eat Jersey Food Festival, which could see islanders sitting down to dinner next to an internationally acclaimed chef.
Renowned chefs from across the British Isles and France will join Executive Head Chef, Mark Jordan, for the three-day gourmet event designed to celebrate the island’s finest produce between 5th-7th November.
As part of the continuing efforts by The Atlantic Hotel and owner, Patrick Burke, to help put Jersey firmly on the map internationally, this high-profile event will offer an array of opportunities to taste the island’s fantastic produce at its very best through the talent of some of today’s most renowned chefs.
‘Tickets have been selling quickly but we do still have some limited availability,’ said Patrick Burke, owner of The Atlantic Hotel. ‘We’re very excited about the event as it really has been many years in the planning and we have some incredibly talented chefs coming to Jersey to cook for our guests. Their talent and creativity, combined with the very finest and freshest of local ingredients promises a spectacular weekend of gastronomy. What’s more, at the opening event islanders will have the opportunity to sit amongst these talented chefs as when not cooking, they will be sitting down to eat with our guests.’
Over the course of the weekend, guests will be able to attend one of two gastronomic evenings at the Michelin starred Ocean Restaurant with an all-day dining event at beachside bistro Mark Jordan at the Beach.
The renowned chefs joining Mark Jordan are:
- Russell Brown, chef consultant, formerly of Sienna (One Michelin Star, Three AA Rosettes)
