Cornwall-born chef Jordan Bailey, formerly head chef at Aimsir, the fastest ever straight to two-star restaurant in the history of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland, which he ran with his wife and General Manager Majken Bech Bailey.
Jordan Bailey opened Aimsir in 2019 after a stellar career in the UK (Rosewarne Manor in Hayle, The Elephant in Torquay) and Scandinavia, gaining and holding three Michelin stars in Maaemo, the renowned Norwegian restaurant of chef Esben Holmboe Bang in Oslo.
Together with Majken, they made a home together in Ireland – both driven by a genuine idea of their own joint creation. Young, passionate, driven, ambitious, Irish food lovers watched the development of this exciting young couple with interest, from their arrival, to opening to winning their two Michelin stars. They bring a concentrated level of experience from working at a very high level in Scandinavia, a part of the world that cherishes the
hyper-seasonal and values the local larder. They also have the intriguing benefit of looking with a fresh eye at home-grown Irish ingredients, and what can be done with them by someone who has no expectations attached.
