Jordan is a chef, food stylist and author. Having trained at the Ballymaloe Cookery School in his native Ireland, Jordan was immediately picked up by the Michelin star chef Skye Gyngell, with whom he worked for years at Petersham Nurseries Restaurant in London. He went on to cook for high profile private clients where he gained a following for his naturally healthy, yet indulgent food. This led to the publication of his first book THE GUILT FREE GOURMET, and subsequently THE NATURAL FOOD KITCHEN, which was shortlisted for a Guild of Food Writers Award. His latest book, HEALTHY BAKING, was published by Orion in February 2017.
Jordan is also the UK’s leading authority on Korean cuisine. He was named the winner of the K-Food Festival, a competition searching for the UK’s best Korean chef and was subsequently awarded an honorary ambassadorship by the Korean Foreign Ministry to promote Korean food in Europe. He learned his craft in Korea from a number of the most respected chefs and food producers in the country. Together with his Korean wife Rejina Pyo they are the authors of OUR KOREAN KITCHEN, a bible of authentic Korean home cooking. In 2015 OUR KOREAN KITCHEN was shortlisted for the André Simon award for best food book and in 2016 it won best cookbook at the Fortnum & Mason Awards and best new cookbook at the Observer Food Monthly Awards
His work has featured in numerous national and international publications including Observer Food monthly, The Guardian COOK magazine, The Times, The Sunday Times, Vogue, Elle, Hello!, Delicious, BBC Good Food, Waitrose Kitchen and Food & Travel.
