Adriano Zumbo is one of Sydney’s most celebrated pâtissiers. Born in the central plains of New South Wales and self-made in the city, Adriano’s swiftly expanding empire began in 2007 with his Balmain shop front, where sugared-up locals couldn’t get enough of pastries.
An appearance on the first series of Australian MasterChef helped introduce croquembouche to an even wider audience and made Adriano – and macarons – a household name.
It’s Adriano’s love affair with confectionery, combined with his Parisian training at institutions that include l'Ecole Lenôtre and Pierre Hermé, that has resulted in a sensibility as delicious as it is irreverent. Constantly evolving and always considering his next move, cake, or idea, Adriano’s infectious energy keeps his fans on their toes. They love it that way, and so does he!
