If chocolate is your vice then The Choc Pot’s for you. Power couple Ash and Deirdre have taken the plunge and are dipping into all things chocolate, serving up home made desserts with quality wholesome ingredients. You can experience things like callebaut chocolate in their molten choc pot (worth selling your soul for) home made waffles, home made marsh mellows, deliciously mouthwatering salted caramel hot chocolate or a red velvet one if you fancy. You can also expect to see cold drinks served with a twist. Mmmm… make that everything else that’s on the menu. Crowds are already coming far and wide and making the pilgrimage to The Choc Pot home in Burwood. With their star quickly on the rise, I can only predict a bigger and bigger future for 2014.


Now that the silly season is nearly upon us. I thought I would share with you one of my favourite desserts of all time.

It is considered the mother of all patisseries. Hoards of loyal followers gather outside in anxious uniformity just to taste the legendary Baked Ricotta Cheesecake at Pasticceria Papa.

People across Sydney have cooed, gushed and fawned over this beautifully baked specimen. With it’s freshly baked doughy exterior delicately protecting a luxuriant fluffy ricotta filling. The cake is blanketed with a dusting of cinnamon and icing sugar in patterned formation.

Completely unassuming, to experience one is to come up against food porn in motion. So set yourselves on to quiver mode.

The cannoli is just one of the other desserts that I can’t seem to pass up. It also has the glorious ricotta filling but this time it spills out of the edges of the concrete cannoli casing. So hard to the bite, it’s like cannoli crackling. Chocolate cannoli is just as good but it’s the ricotta, that will you get you every time.

Now with Christmas around the corner, the baked Ricotta Cheesecake orders are sent into overdrive so I suggest you get in early and place your order over the phone – stat.

Welcome to Pasticceria Papa, for the best fluffy filling.
