Jersey Royals are often referred to as the Champagne of potatoes and their arrival is just around the corner. The Jersey season is short and runs from the beginning of April to the end of June, announcing the end of dark winter days and the arrival of springtime.
The Jersey has something unique in its combination of earthiness, butteryness and sweet digestibility. They also have wonderfully thin, flaky skins which need only the lightest of rubs to clean them.
This week we’re serving a Grilled Grey Mullet, Crushed Jersey Royals and “Acqua Pazza” on our fixed price menu.
