JESPER JULIAN MØLLER

BEHIND THE PROJECT

Jesper Julian Møller started his career in the kitchen as a 10-year old, where he worked as a dishwasher at Græsted Kro. Since then, his career has taken off with positions in several acknowledged restaurants such as Kong Hans, Olsen, Falsled Kro and the Danish National Museum in Copenhagen. He also had a longer stay in Verona to learn to master the Italian cuisine. In 2010, Jesper Julian Møller opened the doors to Restaurant Toldboden for the first time. The aim was to offer food and good experiences at eye level.  The same focus came about in 2014, when Jesper took over the old paper mills at Papirøen and introduced the Danes to street food. The vision was to create a destination that gave back the harbour to the people while helping experienced chefs become independent. It is still Jesper Julian Møllers vision today as he owns both Storms Pakhus in Odense, Broens Gadekøkken by the Inner Harbour Bridge in Copenhagen and Reffen on Refshaleøen. Including Toldboden, he has in Denmark supported 69 skilled chefs in their dreams of becoming independent; 35 independent chefs at Reffen, 15 passionate entrepreneurs in Storms Pakhus, 12 acknowledged restaurateurs serving world class street food at Broens Gadekøkken and now 7 first class chefs at Toldboden.  With Toldboden, Jesper Julian Møller adds another vision: He wants to establish a restaurant with big ambitions offering dining experiences at the highest level.
