Fried Chicken Macaron???

Share

Today is Lulu’s pâtissier friend Adriano Zumbo’s “Zumboron” day. Every year Adriano celebrates his birthday by baking up around 60 types of crazy flavour of macarons.

Last year he had Fish & Chips, Tabaccoroon, Toothpaste, Sichuan pepper etc….This year is even more crazy – Fried Chicken, Salt & Pepper Calamari, Banh Mi Burger macarons.

Believe it or not, they taste quite yummy and it is like eating a savory snack with a hint of sweetness.

Both Fried Chicken and Salt & Pepper Calamari are crunchy as you can tell from their look. The Fried Chicken one tastes like grill chicken with herb stuffings and the Banh Mi Burger one tastes like McDonald’s cheeseburger!

Lulu arrived pretty late and missed out a couple of interesting ones – Margarita pizza, ramen and Green apple pie…

Lulu’s foodie friend Lily’s choice was relatively “conservative”  (Haha) – Pandan & Coconut, Passionfruit & yoghurt, Blueberry lavender and Salted butter caramel.

Still have Blackened Vanilla and Peach Ice Tea in the box and can’t wait to try them tomorrow. :)

Lulu x Visual Merchandising

Share

2 weeks ago Lulu was so surprised that a renowned health food and skin care company asked for her help on visual merchandising for their lanolin products at the Sydney International Airport. There were 3 windows that needed to be displayed. They told Lulu that they wanted to create a sheep farm with imageries of Australia, and Lulu instantly visualised a few scenes in her mind and agreed to help.

Thanks to this opportunity Lulu remembered that she had actually studied visual merchandising at the fashion college!

The most important aim for the vendor is to ensure that the window display could bring out their products, and only an eye catching display would attract the customers’ attention. Lulu had to balance these two things and decided to use a cute cartoon sheep image for the sheep farm. She also thought that the sheep farm should be “outdoor” and hence the sheep are on the grass and with clouds hanging from the top.

It has been very exhausting preparing all the materials and travelling here and there, and there were so many challenges not to mention here. However it has been a very good experience and a lot of people like the window displays. Thanks so much for K, J, D’s help on the day and without you guys Lulu could not make this happen.

Why Sydney is still so cold in October? Lulu needs some nice hot food to warm herself up before summer arrives. Hotpot would be a good idea! There are so many choices: thin fat beef slices, veggies, different types of meat balls, mushrooms, tofu and more! Even the cat is drooling on the yummy food. Waiter, please give me a bottle of Tsingtao beer!

If you want to pig out with Lulu, workshop is available now > see here

Lulu’s friend “L” is now at France enjoying her trip, sure that she had already conquered the nice desserts and breads at Ladurée :)
