About Tigerlily Pastissarie
Chef Maxine’s love for baking began in her family kitchen, where she would earnestly follow her mother around, intrigued by the sights and smells of baking. But it wasn’t until her university years in Australia, when she got inspired by the readily available fresh produce, that she took up the art of baking. With no prior culinary education, she first put on her chef’s hat in the two Michelin-starred Les Amis restaurant under the mentorship of renowned pastry chef Cheryl Koh, who she subsequently worked with to launch Tarte by Cheryl Koh.

With a passion for discovering new flavours and experiences, Maxine has travelled around Australia to work at Brae, listed in the World’s 50 Best, and Masterchef Australia Reynold Poernomo’s Koi Dessert Bar. When the opportunity to launch her very own concept presented itself, Maxine believed that it was the perfect chance to fulfil her dreams, and so Tigerlily Patisserie was born!
