Adriano Zumbo at the Good Food & Wine Show 2015:

Adriano Zumbo

Adriano Zumbo, now Australia’s most-celebrated pastry and dessert chef, is known for his croquembouche tower, V8 cake and fairy-tale house on MasterChef Australia. He opened his first shop in 2007, and began selling confectionary-as-art.

Zumbo became a regular on MasterChef “by accident”, he says. He was asked on to the show to help design a croquembouche challenge, but soon found himself in front of the camera and has been invited back nearly 15 times.

His latest book is the acclaimed The Zumbo Files.
