Executive Chef Jan Kaplan

Executive Chef Jan Kaplan

Jan´s journey to become a Master of Gastronomy was not very straight forward compared to other Chefs. Jan mastered Social Anthropology in the University and started cooking as a hobby only a few months after that during his Work & Travel program in the US. Throughout his presence there he experienced all line staff positions in the kitchen and learned a lot on his journey - nowadays he is a well respected Executive Chef and it shows that the hard work paid off. We are extremely delighted to have Jan Kaplan as an Executive Chef at CODA Restaurant. We are very confident this was a great choice in order to provide our existing and future customers an unforgettable dining experience, thanks to his creativity and skill set.

Most importantly he was side by side for 3 years with Executive Chef Jonas Karlsson at Harvey Nichols Restaurant in London and this is where he gained the most of his experience and creativity. After returning home to Czech republic, Jan worked at renowned Restaurant U Kastelána with Executive Chef Michal Goth for a few years and after that his journey led him to one of the best restaurants in Brno - Pavillon, where he became an Executive Chef.
