The Jersey Wonderer

Collette started her Jersey Wonder business in May 2017 from her porch in Grouville.

She also supplies for any events including office birthdays, weddings, fetes, anywhere really where you would like a taste of Jersey TraditionThe Jersey wonder recipe is a local tradition handed down through the generations to Collette. Wonder recipes can differ from family to family on the Island and are not quite the same from one side to the other. Tradition has it that housewives only cooked their wonders as the tide went out. If they cooked them on the incoming tide, the fat in which the wonders were cooked would invariably overflow the pot. Collette doesn’t go with the old Wives Tales and only cooks on a Saturday morning or whenever anyone wants a large order for a special occasion. The closest equivalent to the Jersey wonder would be a doughnut, however, wonders should never be coated in sugar nor filled with jam!
