“So Traci I’m going to be heading over to Sydney, do you want to meet up while I’m back?”
“Sure, let’s ‘Zumbo’!” was the reply and with that, I met up with a fellow cook and backer a the new Adriano Zumbo restaurant at the newly renovated ‘The Star’ Casino. At the time of our visit the restaurant wasn’t completely opened.. the desert sushi train concept was working but not yet for public use, everywhere we looked we just saw macarons, macarons and more macarons!
We took a quick look at each other and we decided on ordering every single item in the shop (minus the mountain of macarons). The poor attendant in the shop looked at us dumbfounded when we asked for one of everything, even more gob smacked when we informed her we’d be consuming them then and there!
With out booty obtained we scurried off to a little table in the eatery and began devouring our feast (not before documenting everything first mind you!)
Ssnowmanorr – Pate a choux, bubble tea custard, lychee coconut cream legere, lychee gel and coconut crunch
Whizz Fizz – pate sable, raspberry compote, liquorice crème, raspberry sherbet meringue
Ping Pong Show – coconut rice pudding bavaroise, lime jelly, chili brulee, lime dacquiose
Grandma’s Soap – pate sable, blueberry compote, fresh blueberries, lavender Chantilly, almond crème
Citron Tart – Pate sable, citron crème
Man Goes Peanuts – peanut butter crunch, mango compote, mango burnt honey mousse, pain de epice
Lemon Carpet Crush – citron crème, flourless lemon cake, lemon crush liquid, vanilla Chantilly, lemon crush jelly, lime marshmallow & sable
Xiwt – pate sable, shortbread, caramel and milk chocolate ganache
The deserts were pretty hit and miss for the both of us; the ones that stood out and craved to be ordered again were the “ping pong show” and the “whizz fizz” it was just a shame that we were not able to eat in the premises itself.
If all those deserts / pastires from Adriano was not enough I got a little goodie bag from the cookie diva!
Thanks again Traci for the cookies (which looked and tasted great!) and meeting up and for the Zumbo experience. I had a blast! For those of you looking to have come cookies / cakes made.. swing by Traci’s FaceBook page: Cookie Queen Kitsch’n
