Pierre’s Dessert Evenings are back!


We’re heading southside to Adriano Zumbo’s beautiful high tea salon Fancy Nance. It’s an amazing space and we feel honoured to call it our new home.


We’re sticking to Thursdays, however this time around you can book ahead and the venue is licensed.


Each night Pierre will offer a unique 4 course dessert degustation, including the iconic dessert tube.


We’re super excited to be back up and running and look forward to seeing you soon.

The next Dessert Intensive will run from the 27th September – 1st October 2015 at The Essential Ingredient Cooking School in Prahan, Melbourne.


The course is an opportunity for young Pastry Chefs to work alongside Pierre, to explore the ins and outs of modern desserts, workshop ideas, as well as learn about new techniques, flavour, creativity and a whole lot more. Pierre will also share his thoughts on the creative process, developing a distinctive ‘style’ and what it means to be original and authentic.


The course concludes with a Pierre Roelofs Dessert Evening, where the dishes that you and the rest of the team have created will be served to an appreciative group of diners.
