Australia’s very own Willy Wonka - Adriano Zumbo – has been confirmed as host for Channel Seven’ newest cooking reality series.

Zumbo’s Just Desserts will search for Australia’s sweetest home cooks. Under Zumbo’s watchful eye, amateur dessert makers will put their sweet making skills to the test. Who will rise to the challenge? And who will crumble?

After The Great Australian Bake Off broke ratings records for Foxtel last year, its no surprise that a commercial network would try a series focused on desserts.

Adriano Zumbo is one of Australia’s most celebrated patissiers. He has previously hosted his own series on SBS and made regular guest appearances on Masterchef.

From his melt-in-the-mouth Zumbarons to his show-stopping croquembouche, his sweet creations are legendary.

The Prince of Pastries says he’s looking forward to unearthing the country’s best sweet makers.

“Who doesn’t love desserts? It’s everyone’s favourite course and this show will be a trip into my wonderful world of pastry,” Zumbo said. “I can’t wait to share my latest sweet creations – they’re out of this world!”

Zumbo’s Just Desserts - an original concept from the makers of My Kitchen Rules will commence production in May and will air later this year on Seven.
