Melbourne caterer Peter Rowland has joined forces with 2018 MasterChef Australia contestant Jess Liemantara, aka Jess Lemon, to develop a new range of desserts.
Known as MasterChef’s ‘dessert queen’, Liemantara has grown a cult following for her love and mastery of all things sweet.
She began baking at 13 years old, then honed her skills as a barista and waitress in her parent’s restaurant, before moving on to Nobu as a food and beverage attendant.
“I absolutely love pastry work,” said Liemantara.
“The glistening shiny cakes in a glass cake cabinet, freshly baked muffins or croissants, beautiful decorative cakes, and the never ending coloured macarons.”
Now, Liemantara has partnered with Peter Rowland to create a new range of individual desserts, titled Jess Lemon by Peter Rowland.
The range is available exclusively to order online from Packed by Peter Rowland, the company’s new online platform.
Desserts include chocolate coffee opera cake, passion yuzu meringue tart, white chocolate and raspberry rose tart and orange-infused chocolate mousse.
