If you follow a few Sydney food blogs, you will be wondering why we are simultaneously posting about a man called Adriano Zumbo. Thanks to Reemski, another Sydney food bloggers meet up was organised. This time though, we converged at Adriano’s new Cafe Chocolat so we could sample his new Summer collection, catch up with a few familiar faces, and also meet up with some new faces.
If you were a regular customer at Adriano’s Cafe, you probably could have mistaken us for tourists. Cameras of all shapes and sizes were frantically snapping away at each of Zumbo’s creations as the lovely waitress was bringing them out to our table. She couldn’t believe that we could hold such strong restraint by leaving all the cakes untouched so that each of us could get that perfect shot on our cameras. Such an intriguing species we food bloggers are.
I’m not going to write too much, as a few other bloggers have done a better job at capturing exactly what was eaten. But I will say that we had a fantastic time meeting and chatting with everyone. It seems that we all get along pretty well and we had some great conversations with some familiar faces and also with the new bloggers which we met for the first time.
If you haven’t been to Adriano’s cafe or patisserie, maybe these pictures will convince you to (Thank you Helen for the names of the cakes).
Copious amounts of cameras were snapping away at this make shift food photography studio.
This one involved injecting a syringe full of vanilla anglaise into the chocolate fondant. The peanut butter gelato was amazing. If your only going to try one thing at Zumbo’s, this would be it.
Named after one of the blokes who works behind the counter.
Adiano Zumbo is a man who I greatly admire. At the tender age of only 26, it seems he has already mastered his art. It makes me wonder what I have achieved in my career when this guy already has two stores to his name and his own facebook group.
What next Mr Zumbo ? Please continue to wow us with your never ending production line of goodies and maybe even another cafe in the CBD ? There is no doubt you will give the likes of Lindt , Max Brennar and Guylian a run for their money.
