We’ve all heard about the ‘cronut’, that croissant, doughnut mash-up that spawned imitations worldwide, including Adriano Zumbo’s own ‘zonut’. But how about the 'chouxmaca'?
This latest 'frankenfood' combo launches today at Zumbo’s pop-up shop in Prahran's Cullen Hotel. Zumbo has taken the sweet treat he is most famous for, the macaron, and merged it with a choux bun, injecting it with curd, fruit gel and in some cases, chantilly cream. Running for eight days only, the pop-up store will be selling chouxmacas in pina colada, Milo and raspberry, and banoffee pie flavours.
Gramercy Bistro, 164 Commercial Road, Prahran, 9098 1155, August 28 to September 6 (closed Saturday and Sunday), 3pm to 5pm.
