Tastes of Jersey

A half an hour flight from Heathrow took me to the island of Jersey recently and what a wonderful place it is. Besides the varied and constantly changing landscapes and the fascinating low tidal beaches, one of the aspects that I really enjoyed was the local produce and in particular the seafood I tried whilst I was there. On the day I arrived I was met at Jersey airport by my friends who took me for a whistle stop tour of the island which set the scene for things to come. When it was time to eat we arrived at St Brelade beach and there on the front was Jersey Crab Shack Restaurant and Bar. We arrived just on 2.00pm which is the end of lunch service however staff accommodated us to the deli

Another jewel at The Crown

H&D loved The Crown Inn when we reviewed it for the Newbury Weekly News's Out&About magazine. One quote from the review was 'But the minute you walk into this beautiful inn you kind of guess everything is going to be good.' And so when The Crown opened its new farm shop this weekend, we were nearby and popped in and yes it was very good, too. It's small but perfectly packaged with the majority of produce from its home county of Hampshire. There is fresh meat from steaks to smoked chicken breast, pates, terrines, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh tomatoes from the Isle of Wight, chutney, crab apple jelly, and jams. Local cheeses, eggs, vinegars, locally-produced oil, the best bottled tomato juice

No climbing boots needed...

So we tried out the Gurkha Chef in Newbury and it was delicious. As we say in the article for the Newbury Weekly News magazine Out & About, Nepalese cuisine is very different to Indian. Lighter and slightly more fragrant, this restaurant is worth visit. Check out what we wrote and photographed for the August edition.
