Matt Jordan Biography – Matt Jordan Wiki
Matt Jordan is the head chef at the Michelin-recommended SHU restaurant in Belfast. He worked at the Ledbury in London when it held its two Michelin stars.
“I always had an interest in cooking. But I think I only really thought of it as a career after I started my first job in a small cafe,” he said.
Matt worked at the Ledbury (2*) for just under two years – it holds the reputation for being one of the hardest kitchens in the country, but he loved it and would do it all again.
Matt has been working at SHU (Michelin recommended) on and off for eight years. SHU kitchen has a very high turnover of food – he can do up to 200 covers on some services.
A self-confessed control freak, Matt wants every plate that leaves the kitchen to be at a high standard. His food is seasonal, clean on the plate, and packed with as much flavour as possible. He is not a fan of foams and gels that have no reason for being there. Everything on the plate must taste amazing, and work together.
Matt Jordan Great British Menu
Matt Jordan is one of four chefs competing for the Northern Ireland region on the Great British Menu 2023. He is ultra-competitive and hopes his menu is a winning one. He is paying homage to the Irish video game industry that produced games such as Earthworm Jim.
Matt said: “I’m definitely excited to be representing Northern Ireland in the show this year. Although with that comes a lot of nerves. I think I have got what it takes to get to the banquet. Ultimately, I’ll just the food do the talking.”
SHU head maestro Matt Jordan will battle it out with West Belfast-based chef Kerry Roper from city centre restaurant Stix, chef patron at A Peculiar Tea Gemma Austin and freelance culinary master John Hollywood for the chance to represent Northern Ireland in the new series finale of the popular show.
