ATLANTIC GROUP: ALL THE SWEET STUFF!

ATLANTIC GROUP: ALL THE SWEET STUFF!

ALL THE SWEET STUFF – by Atlantic Group’s Lisa Van Zanten >

Let’s all take a moment to pause and reflect on these wise words – “A party without cake is just a meeting”, Julia Child. Thank you Julia, your words are not only insightful all these decades on, but so very ON-POINT TOO! Today’s post is my online shrine (in the non-creepiest way possible!) to Lisa Van Zanten, the Executive Chef at Atlantic Group and Melbourne’s Sugar Queen! Ok, I made the last bit up, but you may as well be.

In the early stages of planning MG’s second birthday this year, I was so desperate for a beautiful and momentous distraction after losing Charlotte. After I created about 78, 452 mood boards for the event, I knew we had to have the amazing Lisa Van Zanten on-board once again. Lisa was the brains, beauty and sweetness behind MG’s baby shower at Mill & Bakery (14th Feb 2015 – more pics below) and she exceeded all of our expectations and then some with her creations. It’s safe to say that she’s done it again! T H A N K  Y O U  you so much Lisa, you really have a gift and although I cannot bake or cook to save my life, I CAN EAT! Here’s to our next function?!


A B O U T  L I S A  V A N  Z A N T E N :

Lisa’s career began in Perth where she completed an apprenticeship. Her goals soon grew into big dreams, as she followed her passion for the pastry knife all the way to London. After a year working in London, Lisa returned to Australia and headed straight to Melbourne where she worked for Atlantic Group (the first time around). Lisa’s next step was just up the road at George Calombaris’ The Press Club, where she worked as Head Pastry Chef. However, the most defining role came after this when she returned to London to work in Claridges as Pastry Sous Chef. This was a stand out role, as Lisa learnt to refine all her skills to suit the Claridge’s customer – one whose standards and expectations are very high, to say the least! This was a different level of service that equipped Lisa with a totally new set of skills and talents. During this time Lisa also worked for a pop-up restaurant for Noma at the London Olympics in 2012.

Soon after her European takeover, Lisa settled back in Australia with a place that was close to her heart, Atlantic Group. Working as the Executive Pastry Chef, she leads the pastry and baking team to achieve the same high standards that she learnt in her travels. Lisa loves to create spectacular Mill & Bakery cakes, pastries, delicate sweet treats and her famous and highly sought after celebration cakes.
