This year, family-friendly five-star hotel The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali has welcomed renowned cookbook author and pastry chef Jason Licker to its exceptional culinary team. Jason is known for his creativity in incorporating sweet, salty, sour and bitter flavours, as well as combining textural and temperature contrasts to elevate pastries and desserts.
Jason started his career with an internship at Union Square Café in New York, while he was also studying pastry arts at the French Culinary Institute. His illustrious journey includes stints as pastry chef at Jean Georges Restaurant and Metrazur for Charlie Palmer, as well as being executive pastry chef at The Shore Club in Miami Beach and The Peninsula New York.
His adventures in Asia started with The Westin Bund in Shanghai, followed by The Venetian Macau Hotel and Resort, The JW Marriott Hong Kong, and Cé La Vi Restaurants in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore. His success continued beyond the kitchen with two accolade-laden published books, Lickerland: Asian-Accented Desserts and Baking With Licker.
As the executive pastry chef, Jason is taking care of all the sweet sections in all areas of the resort, including The Lobby Lounge & Bar where you can find most of his cakes, as well as the dessert menu at Hamabe restaurant.
Soon you will be able to order Jason’s signature birthday cakes, such as the white chocolate and matcha mousse cake, passion fruit and banana-caramel cake, and more. Enjoy more sweet delights at The Lobby Bar & Lounge daily from 8am to 11pm. Take up the lounge’s afternoon tea offer from 3.30pm to 5pm and bask in all the sweetness you deserve.
