He became head pastry chef just before Christmas and is now pioneering plant-based desserts.

The 31-year-old wants the world to know that plant-based food should not be overlooked at the counter.

“There’s a negative bias around vegan desserts that they are less than or inferior to their traditional counterparts and I think to a certain extent this is to be expected,” he told Sydney Morning.

“It is unfortunate, but it is such a new area and the knowledge and techniques are so new.
