Chef Biography

Chef Jan Jorgensen was born and raised in Denmark, and trained at a local restaurant.  After graduating from school, he apprenticed at MS-M-Rakel in Greenland, and then Schweitzerhof in Zurich.

Chef Jan was interested in a warmer change of scenery, and moved to South Florida, where he began working at Secret Garden.  Then the call came from Great Chef Jeremiah Tower to come to San Francisco, where he sharpened his skills at Speedo 690 and Stars, one of the legendary California-style restaurants.  He then left to return to Florida to open JanJo’s in Coconut Grove and later linked with fellow Dane, Soren Bredahl, to open Two Chefs Cooking School in South Miami.

He continues to operate “Two Chefs” and recently opened “Two Chefs Too” in former Great Chef Mark Militello’s “Mark’s Place” site.
