On this week's episode of "Big Escapes," we'll show you some of the most indulgent places to take your sweet escape. I sample some of the finest Belgian chocolates. Matt has his cake and eats it, too, at a fine dining dessert bar. We try some traditional tea and scones, but with a twist. And, first up, Maritza shows us some delicious doughnuts, but not the way you know them.
I don't know which one to pick, they all look great, so I'll just have one of each. Excuse me. Well, right here, they specialize in making amazing loukoumades and great coffee. Their motto here is to choose one thing and do it really, really well, and that's what they've done. They've got traditional loukoumades with their usual toppings of honey and cinnamon, and then they've put their modern twist on it, which are toppings such as white chocolate, Nutella, dark chocolate, biscuits crushed up, Gelato, it's actually endless, and it's so indulgent and delicious, we actually cannot get enough right now.
The owner, who has the best personality out of anyone I've met in a very, very long time, is from Greece, and he traveled the country trying to find the best recipes from the older generation of the best loukoumades.
Throw away your candy bars. French chocolatier, Jeff de Bruges, brings you the most indulgent chocolate all the way from Belgium.
Today, we're in Bondi Junction inside the Westfield at Jeff de Bruges, the premium Belgian chocolatier. I'm a little bit more than excited. Santa has come to town. Gorgeous little picture on the front. That is delicious. I like this one. Chestnut that's been oven-roasted and glazed in sugar.
Jeff de Bruges, it's a French company. We sell chocolate, and our chocolate are manufactured in Belgium. That was established in 1982, and now they have more than 450 stores just in France, and they started expanding worldwide..
Sabor brings a new culinary delight to desserts in the Hunter Valley. Here you can indulge your senses in multi-award-winning desserts, handmade cakes, chocolates, tarts, macaroons. In fact, there is so much to choose from. If you're like me, that becomes a little bit of an issue. So I've gone with the locals' favorite, which is a gorgeous raspberry macaroon delight, and let me tell you it's amazing.
Sabor literally means flavor in Portuguese, so it's flavor in the Hunter. We basically started the dessert bar with grandma's Portuguese chocolate mousse recipe. That's why one of our desserts are based on mousse. We have a variety of over 50 desserts on any given day. They're all individually made, all individually crafted. We like to say they're original, original works of art. They're all gourmet. They're all made with love, literally.
We decided the Hunter Valley because of the vineyard scenario, beautiful outlook of the vines here..
Fancy some tea and scones? The Tea Salon is a sweet tooth oasis to escape to in Sydney CBD. The Tea Salon offers a delightful oasis in the heart of Westfield for tired shoppers' feet. Let's go in and take a seat and see what loose leaf tea varieties and sweet treats are on offer.
Jill: We're here at the Westfield, Sydney in the heart of the CBD. High tea consists of beautiful ribbon sandwiches, an assortment of petite desserts. At the moment, we've got a beautiful lavender panna cotta topped with lavender, fairy floss, which is quite divine.
Kristy: Now, shopping, as we know, can certainly be a hungry activity, and that's where The Tea Salon comes in to revive you, offering a cosy, casual, yet sheek environment to kick up your heels, enjoy a loose leaf tea, some sweet treats, and savouries, and perhaps a champagne or two.
Keep watching Big Review TV for more episodes of "Big Escapes," where we show you some of our favorite places. I am Kristy. See you soon.
