Paul Rankin

Paul Rankin’s restaurant Roscoff, was the first restaurant to win a Michelin Star in Northern Ireland. People travelled far and wide to experience what was considered to be the best cooking in Northern Ireland. Paul is famous for being one of the longest standing and most successful chefs on the massively popular Ready Steady Cook, which pulled in millions of viewers.
Since 2011 Paul has presented Paul and Nick’s Big Food Trip, with fellow chef Nick Nairn, traveling around the coasts of Northern Ireland and Scotland by boat to explore their Ulster-Scots culinary heritage.  The third and fourth series were filmed in the USA, following the trail of Ulster-Scots settlers who sailed to the New World three hundred years ago. Paul has had several of his own series, including The Rankin Challenge, which won two coveted Glenfiddich awards, and Gourmet Ireland (BBC1) which was also transmitted on the PBS network in the USA and the accompanying book was published by KQED (USA). The series has also been sold to SBS in Australia, TVB in Hong Kong, TVNZ Pacific and TV2 in New Zealand, and to CBET Windsor in Canada.  In 2013 Paul appeared in Chefs: Put Your Menu Where Your Mouth Is, and in 2014 on series 4 of Pointless Celebrities on BBC One. In 2014 he appeared in three episodes of Win It Cook It on Channel 4, and as a panellist on BBC Two’s The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice.
Paul is also a very successful author, having written books including New Irish Cookery, Dublin Dining, Hot Food, Gourmet Ireland, and Gourmet Ireland Two as well as contributions to books for BBC programmes Ready Steady Cook, and Saturday Kitchen.
