This week, The World Loves Melbourne was invited to a sneak preview of celebrity patissier, Adriano Zumbo, Zumbo Dessert Bar at Fancy Nance in South Yarra.

From January 15 the Zumbo Dessert Bar is open between 6pm -10pm Fridays and Saturdays and will serve a selection of regularly changing desserts, soft serve ice cream, freshly made popcorn and innovative cocktails, alongside a live DJ.

The first dish of the evening was a beautifully presented ‘lemon tart with buttermilk thyme ice cream’, incredibly refreshing and almost too pretty to eat!

This was followed by ‘cherries, parsley, kirsch & some chocolate’, a bold, full bodied dessert that was a colourful mix of striking green and dark red hues.


We then tried the evening’s showstopper - ‘milk, milk, milk & figs’, which was deliciously sweet, bursting with unbelievably intriguing flavours and textures, and quite simply brilliant.

Before being served a unique Petit Fours of: fresh nougat (the most delicious we've ever tried!); Ice cream sticle; and strawberry popcorn (incredibly moorish).

And as if we weren't full enough…we made a quick dart for the soft serve machine.
