    Acting as head judge of Just Desserts will be James Beard award winning pastry chef, Johnny Iuzzini. He’s known for his tattoos and his good looks, which will certainly attract female fans. Johnny brings years of pastry experience in kitchens to the judges’ table. He is currently the pastry chef at Nougatine.

    Joining Johnny as a judge is Hubert Keller, who started his career as a pastry chef. Fans of the series will recognize Keller from his appearances as a judge on Top Chef and as a contestent on Top Chef: Masters. This award-winning chef currently runs Fleur De Lys in San Francisco and Las Vegas.

    Rounding out the Just Desserts judges’ table is DailyCandy editor-at-large Dannielle Kyrillos.
