Justine Schofield is one of Australia’s most recognisable culinary faces. And since Masterchef, she’s forged a reputation as an elegant cook with an Australian/French flair to everything she does.
With a passion for all things French (with credit to her heritage and upbringing) it makes sense that one of the world’s oldest Champagne houses Maison Lanson partnered with Justine on a new venture. Working closely with the brand, Justine created bespoke recipes that are a perfect match to two of Lanson’s blends – the Lanson Black Label and the Lanson Le Rosé, with the aim of disproving the misconception that champagne can’t be paired with food.
“It has been such an exciting experience to cook with Champagne as the inspiration for the dishes – it took me back to my Masterchef days! I am thrilled to be working with Champagne Lanson, creators of such special and unique champagnes that pair incredibly well with food, which is something many people find a surprise!”
When it came to creating one of the recipes, Justine went back to her roots, developing an Apple Tarte Tatin recipe to pair with Champagne Lanson Le Black Label Brut which is very delicate, fresh and elegant. Adding that “Champagne and dessert, it’s very French and one of the finest pairings of all time”.
