Earlier this week, the patisserie Miann quietly opened its doors to the Auckland public.
Throughout this year, dessert mastermind Brian Campbell and wife Roselle have been popping up at Auckland restaurants under the name Sweet Cuisine. Now their dream restaurant is a tangible reality, in the form of gleaming cabinets filled with all sorts of pretty things you’d find in your dessert dreams, from gelato sticks, beautiful chocolates and cakes.
I went a little trigger happy at Miann last night, and a little naughty ordering “one of that…oooh this and THAT…and OMG the mushroom!”
It’s Brian’s signature balloon dessert given a trendy makeover. Is it just me or do I hear Super Mario music in the background?
I thought I was immune to macarons but their macarons are to die for, with flavours like eight thirty coffee – delicious as a pick-me-up treat the next day.
These are my two favourite petit pateaux: the first being sticky toffee pudding, salted caramel and raisin, and coconut, banana and mango. If you can see them in the cabinet next time, I’d highly recommend you to order them!
The rest of the night was spent in my dessert fantasy, enjoy the rest of the photos – hopefully I’ve done the beautiful creations justice!
Ending with this picture of the Campbells, it’s Roselle’s “I still can’t call this shop OURS” face 🙂
