Adriano Zumbo enjoys the sweet life
Adriano Zumbo is no ordinary patissier. His creations elicit admiration from critics and the public alike and for good reason; they're unique in concept and execution - quite simply, you won't find anything else quite like them in Australia.
This country boy's first taste of the sweet life was raiding the lollies and cake mix from his parent's Coonamble supermarket. In his pursuit of mastering the art of pastry, he has trained and worked both in Australia and France with Australian culinary greats such as Neil Perry and international heavyweights Ramon Morato and Pierre Herme.
Inspired by the world around him, his desserts tell a story or take on the personality of their namesakes. Adriano's fertile mind, exceptional skill and natural curiosity for unlikely ingredients are his biggest assests.
"Zumbo" is a delectable mix of behind the scenes kitchen reality, mouth-watering desserts and core-cast driven story lines. Tied together by an over-arching journey towards a stunning end-of-show gastronomic extravaganza.
Adriano has long said that his goal is to 'caramelise the nation' and he is well on his way to achieving this.
