I finally got the chance to experience the most wonderful and extraordinary desserts by Adriano Zumbo. If you have been following the sydney foodbloggers then I am sure you are no stranger to the name Adriano Zumbo anymore. Adriano is currently the most talked about youngest award winning patisserie chef and everyone is raving about their luscious affairs with Adriano’s creation. A tiny little patisserie tucked in the busy strip of shops in Balmain, vividly colourful gateaux and pastries in the glass cabinet; patrons are seduced effortlessly.

I admire Adriano’s creativity and talent, and no doubt his vision of creating the most divine desserts are indescribable. Hence, I’ve decided not to review the desserts I’ve tasted (I am sure you have read enough about it on the other blogs). To show my admiration towards his creativity, I’ve spent some time to photoshoot some of the desserts and make them look the best as I can. I hope my images are as good as Adriano’s work, I’ll let the desserts speak for themselves.
