The colours are bright, the flavours unexpected. The experience of recreating 50 Zumbo recipes is a complete delight.
The Zumbo Files reveals the recipe secrets of master patissier Adriano Zumbo, dubbed the ‘Sweet Assassin’. This collection of 50 new recipes includes Adriano’s latest creations, Zonut (his pimped-up croissant-donut), plus some astonishing new flavour combinations for his signature Zumbarons (think Lavender, Thyme & Strawberry, Burnt Toast and Banana, 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.
For the first time, Adriano provides photographic step-by-step instructions for the master recipes in each style of patisserie, deconstructing the process and making these culinary works of art achievable for the home baker.
The Zumbo Files is Adriano’s third book and his most ambitious yet. Open it up and step inside – it’ll blow your mind.
