The quality of local seafood, too, is exquisite, with a varied selection of fish available due to Jersey’s famous tidal movements. Shaun Rankin is a keen fisherman himself and he has been sourcing quality seafood from the Fresh Fish Company for over twenty years. He maintains an excellent relationship with a number of other Jersey producers including Fungi Delecti, the scientific suppliers of mushrooms who practise sustainable methods. Shaun even employs the services of a forager to provide his restaurant with sea herbs and other delicacies.

Despite his high levels of success Shaun has not forgotten the journey it took to get there. As a young chef he was given the chance of a three-year apprenticeship, citing this as the opportunity that changed his life. In turn, he is always taking on apprentices at Ormer Mayfair, hoping to provide some inspiration to young chefs at the beginning of their careers.
