Macaron Day at Adriano Zumbo
It's Macaron Day at Adriano Zumbo in Balmain.
Here's a quick lunchtime post.
I arrived at the patisserie at 8.30am and the line was ridiculous and (unencouragingly) not moving at all. But, 40 minutes later (a lot of it spent snooping on other people's print-outs of the 45ish flavours on offer), I ended up with a box that had these following macarons:
-Burnt toast and butter
-Strawberries and cream
-Blue cheese and pear
-Olive oil and rosemary
And, the microsecond after a bowl-full was plunked onto the counter, a Chupachup-flavoured one.
I've just had the olive oil and rosemary one and it was insanely good (as nutty as that sounds).
More updates when I can spare a second.
Here are some pics I quickly snapped during lunch, with a fabric sample borrowed from the kindly Hello Sandwich.
