Adriano Zumbo's Strawberry and Vanilla Ganache Macarons.

Food fun in Sydney:

1. Secret Foodies
What for? Eating and meeting
Secret Foodies, hosted by Ms Darlinghurst, is Sydney's surprise dining experience for people who love food and meeting new people. Guests buy a ticket unaware of where they're going or who they'll meet until two hours before the event. They are then taken on a food journey with the chef, learning about the philosophy and passion behind their meal.

2. 2 Danks Street
What for? Food and art
There's an exciting urban renewal happening in the gritty buildings of Waterloo. One example is 2 Danks Street, a complex of 10 independent galleries in an old warehouse. Danks Street is also home to dozens of unique cafes and restaurants - one of the best is the French House, a cafe fully decked out in the style of an old-fashioned Parisian patisserie.
Details: 2 Danks Street, Waterloo.

3. Food trucks
What for? Snacks
Forget the greasy kebab or late-night burger; Sydney food trucks are dishing out some top-quality street food at all hours of the night. Two out of 10 trucks so far have hit the streets as part of the City of Sydney's 12-month trial. Drop by Cantina Mobil for scrumptious Mexican street food or Eat Art Truck for a pulled pork bun or a hot chocolate cake with dulce de leche.
Details: Locations are tweeted daily from CantinaMobil and EatArtTruck

4. Kitchen by Mike
What for? Breakfast or lunch
If you've only got a short time in Sydney you can't go wrong with Kitchen by Mike, a feast for the tastebuds and the eyes. This buffet-style cafe, run by ex-Rockpool chef Mike McEnearney, serves organic, biodynamic and just plain irresistible dishes. In the same warehouse space you'll find the showroom of Australian-made designer furniture group Koskela.
Details: 85 Dunning Avenue, Rosebery.

5. The Grounds
What for? A coffee-roasting class
If you love the caffeinated bean then this class is perfect for you. Coffee lover and expert Jack Hanna runs roasting and coffee appreciation classes from this heritage-listed warehouse.
Details: Building 7A, 2 Huntley Street, Alexandria.

6. Bentley Bar
What for? A wine or two
Hard-core wine nerds seek out this bar to pore over one of Australia's most comprehensive wine lists. Here you can savour a limited-edition drop from a choice of more than 600 drops recommended by award-winning sommelier Nick Hildebrandt.
Details: 320 Crown Street, Surry Hills.

7. Adriano Zumbo
What for? Dessert
If you're a lover of all things sweet then while you're in Sydney hunt down an Adriano Zumbo patisserie (Manly, Rozelle and Balmain) for the ultimate pig-out experience. Zumbo's latest venture is a sushi-style dessert train at The Star casino. Forget gambling at The Star - grabbing colourful macarons off a conveyor belt is much more fun.
