About the Tennerfest Food

Food and drink play an important part in the Channel Islands culture, and the Tennerfest festival is a perfect celebration of the fantastic produce the islands have.

Jersey has fantastic fresh ingredients that should not be forgotten. Think rich and creamy Jersey Royal potatoes, hand-picked and grown with care. You should also sample some of the island’s lobster. The tides surrounding Jersey bring the shellfish straight to the island’s shores so you can be certain that any shellfish you eat on the island would have been locally caught. And finally, Jersey cows produce authentic Jersey milk to make the perfect ice-creams, cheeses and creams that you must indulge in throughout your visit.
