About Adriano Zumbo
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 Australia have since won him a national following. He has also starred in his own television series, has three Sydney stores with plans for another interstate, and is a popular presenter at food festivals. This is his first book.
Our customer reviews
This is one of the most amazing cookbooks I have ever seen. It's so colourful and radiant. Though I don't know how many of the things in the book I will actually be able to cook, it'd heaps of fun to give them ago. The pictures are amazing even just to look at and admire. Even if your not a fan of cooking but admire Zumbo, this book would be woth it just for the read. I highly recommend it.show moreby Zoe Tong
