Introducing MasterChef: Dessert Masters, a series that takes the MasterChef Australia formula and applies it to desserts. In this season, 10 Aussie bakers, pastry chefs, and chocolatiers all compete for the title of being Australia’s first-ever Dessert Master. Oh, and one chef will also win $100,000.

One of MasterChef: Dessert Masters competitors goes by the name Adriano Zumbo. If you want to learn what he’s all about, then you’ve come to the right place!

“Cooking and competing against 9 legends from the Aussie Pastry scene is the best time to write Desserts backwards!” Adriano wrote. “Or call the park ranger for giving Koalas chocolate!”

Of the upcoming season, he teased that there would be “fun, laughs, running, lots of desserts, and no burnt fingers” in store for viewers.

While we don’t know if Adriano’s prankster energy will pay off this season, we can’t wait to see how it plays out.

If they are still taking suggestions, then we reckon it should be Croissant.
