The goodness of sugary sweet pastries

The goodness of sugary sweet pastries

I had a pretty jam packed weekend. Hence the lack of blogs I suppose. Saturday was mostly spent with family. We had a lovely dinner at The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay where we had some of their infamous fish pie. If you find yourself there, you have to try the fish pie.

Yesterday was more relaxed. H and I decided to take a stroll down from Glebe to Haymarket, then from Haymarket to Darling Harbour, then Darling Harbour to Pyrmont, where we found ourselves at The Star. Now I haven’t visited ever since the unveiling of the ‘new’ casino, but let me tell you, I was impressed. It reminded me of Crown Casino in Melbourne. It was very much a foodie playground. I’ll have to go back there one day to try everything out, but amongst my favourites from yesterday are Adriano Zumbo’s Pattiserie, Flying Fish and Messina Gelato Bar.

I got some take-away pastries from Zumbo. They had a sushi-train full of desserts, known as the dessert-train (duh). That was INSANE. I will definitely be going back for some of that.

Can you guess what I got?

Adriano Zumbo Macarons

Did you guess macarons correctly? Adriano Zumbo has made a name for himself with innovative sweets and cakes, especially those wild and wacky macaron flavours. I’ve only tasted two of them: caramel raspberry and lime and mint mojito. All so perfect and delectable!
