the photo below is of the most amazing coffee machine I saw during a weekend away in Hepburn last month...and they also made good coffee
I made this "Orla Kiely" inspired cushion for a work colleague who moved into a new home some time back...she loved it....This photo was taken when a couple fo work colleagues who were in Sydney the week before me at their own conference and we met up for dinner on the Friday night at Red Lantern and then again when we visited Adriano Zumbo at "The Star"...for those readers from overseas, Adriano Zumbo is an amazing pastry chef who appears regularaly on the show here called MasterChef and presents incredible challenges for the contestants of the show....can I just say that this creation below tasted even better than it looks....it is called "Happy Birthday"...here is a description....
Flourless chocolate biscuit, chocolate sabayon mousse, ultimate chocolate brownie, caramel mou, milk chocolate chantilly and cocoa nib nougatine with a White chocolate and Passionfruit glaze.
...the boxes in the background are his "Zumbarons" ie....macarons....also delicious!
and finally a photo of the cake I wanted to buy Dad for his Birthday which was yesterday....but sadly, Zumbo's does not recommend excessive transportation of such a masterpiece
