Event: The Zumbo Files – Adriano Zumbo ‘unplugged’

On Friday 1st May we’ll be chatting with master patissier Adriano Zumbo (dubbed by most Masterchef contestants the ‘Sweet Assassin’) about his new book The Zumbo Files.

The Zumbo Files is Adriano’s third book and his most ambitious yet. Open it up and step inside.  It will blow your mind!  It’s sort of like Willie Wonka on steroids!

Adriano’s collection of 50 new recipes includes his latest creations; zonuts (his pimped-up croissant-donut), and some outrageous flavour combinations for his signature ‘zumbarons’ (think Lavender, Thyme & Strawberry, Burnt Toast and Banana, or Caramel & Balsamic). There’s also a chapter of savoury recipes to round out your pastry repertoire.  Try the Fish & Chips Pie or the Pork, Earl Grey & Lemon Sausage Rolls.

We’ll be serving a number of tastes from the book matched with something suitably sweet.  Thankfully, for the first time, Adriano has provided photographic step-by-step instructions for the master recipes; deconstructing the process and making these culinary works of art achievable for the home baker.

If you’ve ever dreamt of being a pastry chef, making your own macaron or just exploring your ‘sweet side’ this will be a chance to chat to one of Australia’s best patissiers.

Please join us for an intimate, fun & tasty evening!
