Jeff and Kate Fournier are the Chef and Owners of Thompson House Eatery in Jackson, NH.
When you walk through the doors of Jackson House Eatery, you walk into their home, which is also a working farm, restaurant, and beautiful cocktail bar. A lot of the decor you’ll find in the room are pieces they’ve gathered along the way, like Jeff’s cookbooks, and a sailboat made by Kate’s father. If the artwork on the wall isn’t an antique sign, then it’s a painting or print done by Jeff.
The menu changes daily at Thompson House Eatery, using resources from local farms. The Fournier’s grow about 80% of the produce during the season themselves.
Of the offerings you may find pan seared yellow fin tuna with a beet puree; Umami cucumber, and housemade Kimchi, which really elevates the vegetarian and vegan offerings.
Another exciting dish uses raw milk to make a polenta, topped with a miso fried egg, and micro greens. As you dig in, the yolk mixes with polenta creating a really dynamic combination.
The front of house staff are a hardworking group, and are drawn to the atmosphere that the Fournier’s have created. They offer amazing hospitality with real authenticity and a smile.
T.H.E. prides themselves on having a really excellent bar program with seasonal inventive cocktails, and a meaningful wine list. The Fournier’s have a story most every bottle of wine on the list. From either a bottle from their honeymoon or just a bottle that they like to enjoy on a quiet night in.
Jeff has spent 30 years developing his culinary voice and finally feels like he’s doing the best food of his life. Part of the reason is because he feels at home, plus the kitchen team is one of the best he’s ever had.
Head in for dinner Wednesday through Saturday for most of the year, and Tuesday through Saturday in the summer plus a Farmer’s Market.
In Jackson, New Hampshire, every season has something beautiful to offer.
