Shaun Rankin

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 and Grantley Hall, hoping to provide some inspiration to young chefs at the beginning of their careers.
