Happiness, originally the most elusive state of
being in existence, was once regularly seen floating through the air
carelessly, waiting for someone to nab it. The first pastry chef to stumble
upon the melt-in-the-mouth macaroon recipe, decided to acquire the
aforementioned happiness in bulk and add it to the macaroon as the final touch.
Bite into your own little circular mouthful of happiness with today’s deal: $9
for a pack of six gourmet mixed macaroons from highly acclaimed head chef
Leanne Beck at Sweet Infinity in Wooloomooloo ($18 value).
Sweet Infinity was voted in the top ten sweet destinations by the Sydney Morning Herald and was the winner of the Foodies Achievement Award in 2009. These delectable macaroons come in a package tied up with ribbon. Sample the sumptuous and delightful flavours of apple, pistachio, caramel, strawberry and vanilla. Or, if patrons can resist eating them all up, they’re a wonderful gift idea.
A-list celebrities like Russell Crowe regularly
flock to the store in search of their signature crisp lemon meringue tarts, a
wafer-thin darkly cooked pastry that holds a soft, tangy citrus filling as well
as the white chocolate mousse, caramel slice, tiramisu, the highly acclaimed
brownies (Sweet Infinity make 400 a week) and raspberry tortes. The
shopfront is artfully decked out in tasteful, handmade French-inspired pastries
and pies. Sweet Infinity is now branching out into the corporate catering world
as well as weddings, private parties and events.
“A true pastry master, Leanne Beck has caused an excited stir with her long list of pastry creations.”
‘My favourite bakery/pastry shop! I discovered sweet infinity by accident last year as I was working around the corner on William St. I have never been disappointed by anything that have come out their oven, from freshly baked muffins, scrolls, to my all time favourite lemon meringue tart (which goes very quickly!)”
