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.
It's wild, it's wacky, it's whimsical and it's very very Zumbo. You may not be able to cook it but you can have have a great time looking.
