“Baby Lifeline is a unique charity and I am proud to be supporting them in their mission to provide support, training and essential lifesaving equipment. The charity is important to both myself and my wife Cheryl and we will do all we can to draw attention to the amazing work done by Baby Lifeline.”
Shaun Rankin is Jersey’s most renowned and accredited chef. He has spent the majority of his career in Jersey, Channel Islands, and has held a Michelin star since 2005. After being named British Chef of the Year in 2006 by the Independent, he shot to culinary fame in 2009 in BBC Two’s Great British Menu with his now famous Treacle Tart, and in 2010 launched his TV series ‘Island Feast’ accompanied by the book ‘Seasoned Islands’.
In May 2013 he opened the highly anticipated ‘Ormer’ restaurant bringing a sophisticated restaurant, bar and private dining venue to the centre of St Helier, Jersey. The restaurant received a Michelin star only four months after opening and has since received 3AA Rosettes and won ‘Restaurant of the Year – Best Newcomer’ in the coveted Food and Travel Magazine Awards 2014. In June 2017, Ormer Jersey was crowned ‘Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year’ at the inaugural Jersey Style Awards.
In December 2013 Shaun opened his own delicatessen ‘Don Street Deli’ adjacent to Ormer. The Deli offers luxury retail products, items from local Island producers and fresh artisan food offerings.
In March 2016 Shaun began his partnership with Flemings Mayfair Hotel. He was signed to the hotel as part of their £14million refurbishment programme. His new restaurant within the hotel, Ormer Mayfair, launched with great fanfare in September 2016.
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 Shaun’s careful guidance.
Shaun is a celebrity ambassador for Teenage Cancer Trust, Caring Cooks of Jersey and Baby Lifeline.
