One of the places on my wishlist to visit in Sydney has always been Adriano Zumbo Patissier. After watching episodes of Masterchef and being wowed by Adriano Zumbo’s creations, I decided that it is a must visit for me to one of Adriano Zumbo’s patisseries. We took a short walk all the way to The Star from Sydney Fish Market for desserts at Adriano Zumbo.
When we arrived, there were so many sweet treats on offer from macarons, tarts to pastries. I felt like I was a kid in a candy store. We decided to shared quite a few cakes and tarts among the four of us. First, it’s the Mylo in Life ($10) which comprises of Milo milk, milo chantilly, milo powder, milo cremeux, choc malt mousse and a chocolate milo disc. If you love Milo, you will definitely love this! The non-edible straw is there for you to drink up the milo milk first and then you can enjoy the rest of the layers. It’s just oh so amazing!

Next up was the Blackcurrant and Mandarin Zonut. The zonut was soft and fluffy with a bit of a crisp on the outside. The flavours of the blackcurrant and mandarin are so lovely that it complements each other well.

We also shared a Peter, Bob and John tart ($9) and Passionfruit Tart ($6). The Peter, Bob and John tart consists of a delicate pâte friable base, milk chocolate namelaka (a luscious soft ganache), raspberry gel, peanut brittle butter and an irresistible caramelised peanut roacher glaze. If you love peanut butter, you will love the Peter, Bob and John tart. There was a great combination of saltiness from the peanut brittle butter and sweet flavours from the caramelised peanut roacher glaze. The milk chocolate namelaka on top was smooth and irresistible. YUM!
The passionfruit tart comprises of a pate friable base and passionfruit curd with a striking red and yellow airbrush finish. It was fresh in flavours and the passionfruit curd was smooth and creamy. Absolutely delicious.

Before heading to the airport to board my flight back to Perth, I decided to purchase some treats home while shopping at QVB which luckily, survived the 5 hours flight! I bought the Jaffa cake ($9.50) and an assorted 6 pack zumbarons for $15. There were so many different flavours of zumbarons on offer and being the indecisive me, it took me a while to come to a decision. So, I ended up going for the Grape Hubba Bubba, Francesco Brownie, Fingerbun, Caramel au beurre sale, Bread and Butter Pudding, Berry Brulee.

If you are ever at Sydney, do visit one of Adriano Zumbo’s stores and give some of their cakes, pastries or zumbarons a try. They are oh so good and trust me, you will be taken to dessert heaven!
Dear Adriano Zumbo, please open a store in Perth.
