Il Fornaio cafe in Melbourne

If you were counted among the over one million Australians that obsessively tuned in to Masterchef each week, recounting the details on Twitter and biting your nails along the way, then you may indeed be experiencing the emptiness of withdrawal. Well, we’ve got a cure: supremely satisfying sweets made by award-winning Melbourne-born pastissier and Masterchef guest chef, Philippa Sibley.

These days, Sibley is heading up Il Fornaio, just outside Melbourne, where her infamous Snickers dessert, honey panacotta, meyer lemon tarts, and a whole host of other fabulously indulgent sweets are available from their newly conceived dessert bar. That’s right. A bar you can walk up to, order only desserts, and walk away — happy and full. Breakfast and lunch dishes are also on offer as is wine, but with pastries this tempting you’ll want to skip straight to sweets — you’re in withdrawal after all.
