Decadence on a spoon

PERHAPS the greatest gift France has given to the world, the crème brûlée tops the dessert list every time.

Serve it with vanilla-bean ice cream and raspberry sorbet and you're on your way to a day trip to heaven.

The top five desserts according to the maestro of all things sweet, Adriano Zumbo are:

1. Custard

2. Ice cream

3. Chocolate fondant

4. Cheesecake

5. And of course - Zumbarons. (Zumbo's take on the macaroon.)

Creme brulee always tops the dessert list.

Bread and butter pudding: Call it old-fashioned, but it is still one of the most sought after desserts. This is the one you turn to when you need to be nurtured. Drizzle it with butterscotch sauce and serve it with ice cream.
