One of the oldest Champagne houses, Maison Lanson, has announced a new partnership with former Masterchef Australia star Justine Schofield who becomes an Ambassador for the brand.

The partnership sees Schofield create a number of bespoke recipes, pairing dishes with the Lanson Black Label and the Lanson Le Rosé, helping to disprove the misconception that champagne can’t be paired with food.

Schofield said: “My decadent Apple Tart Tatin pairs perfectly with the freshness of Lanson Black Label, and the delicious Salmon and Pink Peppercorn Rillettes dish I’ve created is not only a perfect match for the pink hue of Le Rosé, but also perfectly complements its fruitiness.”

“It has been such an exciting experience to cook with Champagne as the inspiration for the dishes – it took me back to my Masterchef days. I am thrilled to be working with Champagne Lanson, creators of such special and unique champagnes that pair incredibly well with food, which is something many people find a surprise.”

Lanson Brand Development Manager Oceania, Laurent Valy, added: “Lanson is thrilled to partner with the delightful Justine Schofield. The perfect embodiment of Lanson’s core values of openness, kindness, humility, authenticity and elegance, Justine and Champagne Lanson fit together seamlessly.

“Her enduring love affair with all things French and her rich French heritage makes her a compelling match for our wonderfully French Champagnes.”

Lanson was established in 1760 and is situated in Reims, the capital of the Champagne region.
