Cornwall-born chef Jordan Bailey, former head chef at Aimsir, led the restaurant to achieve two Michelin stars faster than any other in the history of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland, alongside his wife and General Manager, Majken Bech Bailey.

Bailey opened Aimsir in 2019 after a notable career in the UK (Rosewarne Manor in Hayle, The Elephant in Torquay) and Scandinavia, holding three Michelin stars at Maaemo in Oslo under chef Esben Holmboe Bang.

Jordan and Majken settled in Ireland, driven by their shared vision. Irish food enthusiasts eagerly followed their journey from arrival to the opening and subsequent Michelin success. Their extensive experience in Scandinavia, known for its hyper-seasonal and local cuisine, allows them to bring a fresh perspective to Irish ingredients.
