Jesper Jonsson, chef of Randolph's: "Fingerprints on my plates really get me fired up"

Jesper Jonsson Randolph's at the Warwick Hotel 1776 Grant Street 303-318-7272 randolphsdenver.com

This is part one of my interview with Jesper Jonsson, executive chef of Randolph's at the Warwick Hotel; part two of our chat will run tomorrow.

Bill Cosby, Clint Eastwood, Victor Borge, Caroline Kennedy, Yoko Ono, Kevin Kline, Mel Brooks, Sylvester Stallone, Isabella Rossellini, Roger Moore and Greg Norman. That's a short -- very short -- list of some of the celebrities for whom Jesper Jonsson has cooked during the twenty-plus years he's been a chef. Add to that a wealth of Danish ambassadors, prime ministers, queens, princes and princesses, including princesses Stéphanie and Caroline of Monaco, and you kind of wonder what the hell he's doing in Denver.
