JUSTIN LEE

Born in South Korea, Chef Justin Lee started his culinary career in 2003. After working in Korea, he decided to leave to experience life overseas. Therefore, Chef Justin decided to move to Brisbane, Australia, and worked at Il Centro. In 2012, he then moved to Auckland, New Zealand, working at Clooney, which is rated "3 Hats" by Cuisine Magazine's "Cuisine Good Food Awards". It was then that a different path was destined for Justin. When the restaurant was in need of someone to man the pastry kitchen, the head chef, Des Harris, assigned Justin for this role. It was then that Justin fell in love with the world of pastry.


Sosa Modern Gastronomy Ingredients Asia Pacific Ambassador chef

After a quick stint at the Park Hyatt Busan, he returned back to New Zealand to work for Miann, renowned for their creative takes on many types of pastries.

After sometime Justin has returned back to Korea, setting up his own new concept, "JL Dessert Bar" in Seoul since 2016. Using the finest chocolates and seasonal local ingredients, the concept of JL Dessert bar incorporates refined plated desserts, macarons, petit gateaux, with a wide array of drinks to pair.


His passion for pastry culminated in 2018, when he entered, "C3 <chef, chocolate, competition>" a competition by Valrhona chocolate for Asia-Pacific side. Although Chef Justin entered the competition just for the experience and did not expect to win anything, but he ultimately won the 2nd place.

Recently, Justin became representative Asia Pacific Ambassador chef of SOSA modern gastronomy ingredients and VALRHONA Chocolate.
