Johnny Iuzzini makes the most beautiful desserts I think I've ever photographed. Seriously, they were so stunning that as I left our shoot on the patio of Jean Georges, I couldn't wait to get home and look at them. It's dishes like these that really make me love what I do. (And they were DELICIOUS too! I got to try everything.)

Johnny Iuzzini (or as Kayoko calls him, "Hottie Iuzzini"), is the executive Pastry Chef at Jean Georges, in NYC. He has worked at both Daniel and Payard among other places, and in May 2006, The James Beard Foundation awarded Johnny “Outstanding Pastry Chef of the Year”.
Don't wait! Head on over to Columbus Circle for dessert. His creations are not only gorgeous, but completely innovative and sinfully delectable.
