Jordan Bourke


Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Jordan Bourke has been based in London for almost 10 years where he lives with his wife Jina.

Having trained at the Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland, Jordan was immediately picked up by the Michelin star chef Skye Gyngell to work with her and her team at Petersham Nurseries Restaurant in London.

During his time there, Jordan was also working with his sister Jessica (a nutritional therapist based in Dublin), cooking privately for some of her London based clients, specializing in cooking for health, weight loss and nutrition.

Jordan’s first cookbook The Guilt Free Gourmet, which he wrote with Jessica, was a result of countless requests from clients, friends and family for the recipes to the indulgent, yet ‘guilt-free’, food they had tasted.

Jordan divides his time between cooking for private clients, food styling, recipe testing and also consulting for restaurants, food companies etc. Jordan also blogs for The Huffington Post.
