Weekend Cooking – Tennerfest

We recently returned from our second trip to Jersey. Boy, I love the island! As we checked into our hotel, incidentally,the same as the last trip, we were advised it was TennerFest.

So what is Tennerfest? It is an opportunity for hotels and restaurants to show off their food, premises and delights by offering a cheaper set priced menu. Initially the price was £10, but we found that those restaurants that took part offered a two course meal for £12.50 and a three course meal for £15.00.

We visited several restaurants that were taking part in the event, including The Candlelight Restaurant at the Revere Hotel where we were staying. The food was delicious and the service excellent and was in no way compromised by the cheaper price of the menu. Everything was exactly as it was when we ate there back in July.

The meal that I ate at the Revere was Leek and Potato soup for a starter, which was wonderful and a favourite of mine. Hubby had a huge bowl of mussels and everyone who walked passed the table could not resist a peek! For the main course I had a very tender Lamb Shank with onion mash potato and vegetables. Hubby had a medallion of steak with saute potato and vegetables. I missed desert, but had coffee, hubby had desert – Eton Mess with fresh berry compote. No pictures I am afraid, but it was delicious!

On the day we checked in it was my birthday. We had unpacked and headed off for the day. When we returned to our room was a wonderful surprise.

Isn’t that lovely?

    Lovely!!! What a great hotel.

    When I lived in Guernsey they didn't have Tennerfest (at least not when I was there. Booo. I'd have taken a ferry over for Jersey just to eat.

    Happy birthday!!!!!

    How very, very kind! When we got married in London many years ago, the hotel we stayed in gave us champagne, and the taxi driver gave us a free ride as our 'first wedding present.'
