Summer time brings the start of the festival season – but, while some may choose to turn to music, others may choose to celebrate local, delicious food.
The Channel Islands – including Guernsey and Jersey and the surrounding islands of Sark, Alderney and Herm – are gearing up for a busy spell as they present a series of upcoming food festivals.
Guernsey’s new International Food Festival will take place from Friday, September 18 – Sunday, September 27.
The festival is based in the island’s beautiful and bustling capital of St Peter’s Port.
It promises to be dynamic and fun and will run with events ranging from cook-offs to live cooking demonstrations and gastronomic island tours.
You can sample delights from both local chefs and guest chefs – and you’ll no doubt leave well fed and possibly have your thirst quenched, too, with the selection of cocktails on offer!
The ever-popular Tennerfest food festival then follows. It takes place across the Channel Islands and lasts for six weeks, from Thursday, October 1 – Wednesday, November 11.
Tennerfest is a well-loved annual event across the Channel Islands and takes its name from the original concept of dining for £10.
The iconic food festival occurs every Autumn and throughout its duration, gourmet dining becomes accessible to all – with approximately 200 of the finest gastro-pubs, bistros, café’s, Michelin-starred restaurants and fine-dining establishments across the islands producing outstanding meals and menus in support of the festivities.
The diversity in local island produce such as fresh seafood, Jersey black butter and Guernsey’s dairy cream – combined with the culinary skill on offer – is very impressive.
Guests can take advantage of the excellent value-for-money deals around this season and enjoy the vibrant food scene for which the islands are so well known.
Partnered with breath-taking scenic views, and a wide range of charming accommodation or hotels to suit all budgets, the Channel Islands are an ideal location to holiday within the British Isles.
