Michelin starred chef Shaun Rankin is a renowned, published chef with TV accolades and a passion for the fresh produce of the Channel Islands.
Shaun has spent the majority of his career in Jersey, Channel Islands. He spent eight years at prestigious Relais & Chateaux Hotel Longueville Manor, followed by the establishment’s sister restaurant Sumas. He then opened Bohemia restaurant as head chef in 2003 and gained his first Michelin star in 2005. Shaun is highly acclaimed and ranked as “a chef at the top of his game” in the prestigious Good Food Guide and described as “masterful” and “a champion of Jersey produce” by Square Meal.
In 2009 Shaun represented the southwest in the fourth series of BBC Two’s Great British Menu. His winning dish was Treacle Tart with Jersey clotted cream and raspberry ripple coulis. Since appearing on national TV he has also made many further appearances on popular cookery show Saturday Kitchen and Meet What You Eat for Channel 4.
In 2010 Shaun launched his own food range in partnership with Cimandis in the Channel Islands. He also embarked on more TV work and filmed his first series ‘Shaun Rankin’s Island Feast’ with ITV.
Shaun’s launched his first recipe book ‘Shaun Rankin’s Seasoned Islands’ in 2011. The book includes over 75 of his recipes and stunning imagery of all the Channel Islands. His recipes also feature in ‘Yes Chef!’, ‘Nigel Haworth’s Obsession’ and alongside the calibre of Michel Roux Jr and Raymond Blanc in ‘The Good Food Guide Recipes’.
In May 2013 he opened the highly-anticipated ‘Ormer’ restaurant bringing a sophisticated restaurant, bars and private dining venue to the centre of St Helier, Jersey. The restaurant is commended in the Good Food Guide and received its first Michelin star only four months after opening in September 2014. In January 2014, Ormer was additionally accredited with 3 AA rosettes later on in the year the business was named ‘Best Newcomer’ at the coveted Food and Travel Magazine Awards 2014. The restaurant is currently shortlisted for Food and Travel Magazine ‘Restaurant of the Year – Outside London’ 2016.
In March 2016 Shaun began his partnership with the luxury Flemings Mayfair hotel as part of a £15million refurbishment programme.
Shaun and Ormer Mayfair played a starring role in 2017 Masterchef UK when the restaurant became a location for the programme. The contestants were put to the test in the professional kitchen under the careful guidance of chef Shaun Rankin.
His new venture with Flemings Mayfair hotel runs alongside his current Jersey restaurant Ormer and 12 Hay Hill in London.
