Jordan Bailey

Cornwall-born chef Jordan Bailey and Danish front of house manager Majken Bech Christensen married recently are the couple behind Aimsir, the exciting new restaurant opening later in the year at Cliff at Lyons. Previously a key member of the team in Restaurant Sat Bains, 29-year old Jordan is now opening his first restaurant as head chef 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.

He brings 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 in a way that hasn’t quite become commonplace here yet. Aimsir, the weather, is the heart of what happens at Aimsir, the ingredient-led, sophisticated restaurant.
