Amateur Australian chefs compete to impress patisserie chef Adriano Zumbo with their sweet creations. Those who don't fit the brief go head to head in the 'Zumbo test' to replicate his unique desserts.
Competition based series where amateur cooks progress through by successfully creating dishes that show off their technical skill and understanding of flavour. Guest judges include food critics and Mitchelin star chefs.
Quite a fun and entertaining show to watch with amateur bakers squaring off against each other in challenges that even a seasoned baker might contend with.
**The only reason it doesn't highest marks (down a full two points for this) is that it seem every episode the editing telegraphs who is going to lose just moments before it's announced because it's cut nearly the same way every time. Too bad, because that loses the suspense and surprise of it all. I almost want to close my eyes for those last few shots so I don't know who is being cut before they say it.**
Aside from that, it's a wonderful show that I learn from and inspires me to want to go out and try new things to add to my arsenal of baking sweet and savory treats.
