I’ve been following the team now for a few years, and in the latest escapade Justin is heading to Japan in a couple of weeks for two days of intensive competitive pastry making. A world away from the glamor of the competition, here he is practicing his chocolate showpiece in the demonstration kitchen of his boss at South Strathfield. Around this period the air-conditioning in the kitchen was playing up, and to counter the possibility of his sculptures’ structure being weakened Justin started his work on this day at 3am.
Suffice it to say that I was not on site at that hour, these pictures were made somewhere around 9am, several hours into Justin’s allotted time. He also had to make a raft of exquisite chocolates during the time allotment.
