Sweet Street


This title will ship upon release.

Anna Polyviou is a bright star of the dessert world and head pastry chef at Sydney's Shangri-La Hotel. Easily recognisable with her trademark mohawk and big smile, Anna injects a sense of fun, irreverence and youthful energy into the sometimes-stuffy world of high-end patisserie. With Sweet Street, her first book, Anna brings classic techniques and flavours out of the commercial kitchen and into the home kitchen in a way that invites rather than intimidates. Home cooks with a sweet tooth will find plenty of inspiration, instruction and encouragement in the 80+ recipes here. With guest recipes from a few of Anna's famous contemporaries and friends (Adriano Zumbo, Kirsten Tibballs, Andy Bowden and Gelato Messina), Sweet Street is a book you'll return to whenever there's a celebration on the horizon.
