About the Author

Adriano Zumbo is no ordinary patissier. His playful approach to food, far-ranging imagination and cheeky attitude have made him one of Australia's best-known chefs. On his way to mastering the art of pastry, he has trained and worked in Australia and France with Australian culinary greats such as Neil Perry and international heavyweights Ramon Morato and Pierre Herme. Sydney discovered his magical macarons, pastries, cakes and chocolates when he opened his first patisserie in Balmain in 2007. His appearances on ‘MasterChef' have since won him a national following.

Adriano has appeared in his own television series on SBS TV, has three Sydney stores with plans for another interstate, and is a popular presenter at food festivals. This is his firstbook.

"I freaking love this book. It's like Willy Wonka plus Pierre Herme, times rainbow awesome." --CakeSpy.com

Adriano Zumbo

Adriano Zumbo is one of Australia's most celebrated patissiers. His love affair with confectionery, combined with his Parisian training at institutions that include l'Ecole Lenotre, Bellouet and stages at Pierre Herme and Damiani, have resulted in a sensibility as delicious as it is irreverent. 

His swiftly expanding empire started out in 2007 with a Balmain shop front, then an appearance on the first series of MasterChef Australia helped introduce croquembouche to an even wider audience and made Adriano - and macarons - a household name. Adriano has opened five stores throughout New South Wales and Victoria including a concept store at The Star Casino. 

In October 2011 he released his first book, Zumbo, allowing anyone with a sense of adventure to try their hand at his desserts. In October 2012 Adriano released his second book Zumbarons, which celebrates his most popular creations, macarons, with 40 flavours to delight and inspire. With his third book The Zumbo Files, he is well on the way with his mission to caramelize the nation!
