Shayne Mansfield

Executive Chef, Jana Restaurant & Bar, QT Newcastle

With a daring nature to push the boundaries of modern Australian dining, Shayne Mansfield, Executive Chef of QT Newcastle, has a virtuosic vision without veering far into the pretentious.   

With a key focus on sustainability, pickling and preserving, Shayne plates up modern renditions of recipes passed down through generations. He pays homage to the lessons instilled by his grandmother, as his ardour for food became evident from his time with her from an early age.  

Under the tender leadership of Phillip Johnson at e’cco Bistro, Shayne commenced his culinary career before intrigue led him across the globe to widen his horizons. From Michelin star mentorship with Paul Walsh and Jason Atherton at Pollen Street and City Social, Shayne’s experience spans both Europe and North America. Mansfield made the move back to home soil and continued his run with star-studded leadership under Cameron Matthews at 2-hatted restaurant, The Long Apron.  

Boasting a string of accolades, Shayne was awarded One Hat by Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide 2022, attaining the hat in 2023, during his appointment as Executive Chef at local restaurant Flotilla. Shayne has been a leading figure in establishing the steel city as a world-class dining destination and continues to do so at the helm of Jana Restaurant & Bar.
