About the chef
A household name in Sweden, 1 Michelin star chef Sayan Isaksson was originally born in Thailand. He was raised in Sweden after being adopted at only 3 months old, and the country soon became his home.

Chef Sayan holds wide acclaim for his 1-Michelin- Star Esperanto restaurant, formerly in Stockholm, which he opened in 2005. He won his first star in 2007, retaining it until the restaurant closed earlier this year.

His unique style brings together global culinary influences, together with contemporary Scandinavian flavours and styling, adding theatrical visual drama, underlined by technical excellence.

“I’m really honoured and moved by this gift, given to me, to cook in my birth country. My wish is to infuse Scandinavian flavours with the very sophisticated and brilliant food culture of Thailand,” commented Chef Sayan Isaksson.

On the dinner menu at Jojo, highlights include: lightly grilled prawns in nasturtium leaves; tartar of flash-grilled dry-aged beef, emulsified oysters and seaweed crisps; mushroom and grain porridge with aged butter and yuba; softshell crab cooked over glowing embers with organic waste-XO; celeriac petals and white truffle; and many more tantalizing dishes.

The 3-course set lunch at Jojo sees an indulgence of oriental garden salad, buttermilk fromage blanc and a poached pullet egg, followed by black garlic pigeon, Nordic ‘five spice’, potato and herb bundles, finished with autumn leaves and frozen sunchokes and grilled apple tea.
