Chocolate Sculpture from Bujinlkham Chuluunbaatar

Known to friends and many others as Bujin, Bujinlkham Chuluunbaatar, born in Mongolia, currently works at the Palazzo Versace in the Gold Coast as the pastry chef.

Bujin began to work in the hospitality industry from 2012, beginning her baking career in 2015. Bujin quotes her then 3 month old son as her inspiration and motivation behind her career choice.

She sees making chocolate sculpture as one of the hardest category in the pastry industry, because of the way it melts and breaks down very easily… and even though she finds it challenging, there’s nothing that Bujin loves to do more!

Bujin is honoured to represent Australia next year in Milan (Italy), representing Australia at The “World Trophy of Pastry, Gelato, and Chocolate“ by the International Federation Of Pastry FIPGC.

Bruna Forlin Trevisanuto is the nationally recognized pastry chef of the Australian team in Sydney, NSW. Born in Curitiba, Brazil and raised in São Paulo, she moved to Australia in 2014.

With a strong belief that design and creativity play a big role in her career, Bruna endeavors in the growing and development of her skills in sugar art. The result is an intensely personal creations that is both technically polished and soulful.

Pastillage creations from Jo Barrett 

Jo Barrett grew up in Melbourne and can’t remember a time when she didn’t love cooking. As an award-winning apprentice, Jo studied in Canada in 2007

Back in her home town she’s been an impressive sous chef in a variety of settings, notably Movida Bakery, alongside Shaun Quade at Collins Square (think Bar National, Long Shot & Web Catering) and Tivoli Rd Bakery.
Jo’s seamless transition to artisan bread and pastry added artistry to Matt Stone’s progressive team at Stanley Street Merchants, Sydney’s first people’s choice/crowd funded restaurant.

The collaboration worked well and Jo’s passion for local, seasonal produce that’s sustainably sourced saw her at Brothl, another Stone/Joost project. Jo draws her inspiration from Australian Native ingredients and the natural beauty that surrounds her current location, Oakridge Winery in the Yarra Valley. As co-executive chef (with Matt Stone), Jo strives to minimize waste, employing creative methods to get the most from every ingredient.
