SYDNEY – Nov 7, 2012: Adriano Zumbo’s heavenly signature macarons will be dispensed from specially decorated Renault Trafic ‘Zumbaron food trucks’ in Sydney and Melbourne this summer.

Australia’s favourite pâtissier (and enthusiastic Renault Sport customer) has just been announced as Renault’s latest ambassador as he prepares to embark on a four-stop mobile food fest in each city.

The colourful Renault Trafic Zumbaron food trucks will be selling loads of bite-sized treats in Adriano’s signature varieties including:

  • Blackened Vanilla Bean
  • Raspberry Shortbread
  • Salted Butter Popcorn
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter & Jelly
  • Pancake & Maple Syrup
  • Caramel Au Beurre Sale (Salted Caramel)
  • Peach Iced Tea
  • Passionfruit & Tonka Bean

    The macarons are $2.50 each. Adriano will be appearing at the food stops to greet fans of his famous macarons, and give away limited copies of his newly released book Zumbaron.

    This is the first time Adriano has taken his Zumbarons on a road trip, and Renault is delighted to be a partner in what is sure to be a mouth-watering experience.

    The Renault Trafic Zumbaron food trucks will ferry these edible works of art to each location and provide a mobile storefront for their sale.

    “With the rise in popularity of food trucks I have been so keen to take my products to people who can’t necessarily make it into my stores,” Adriano said.

    “Renault has been the perfect partner for this venture, and I am delighted to be working with them to make our joint vision a reality,” he said.

    Justin Hocevar, Managing Director Renault Australia, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Adriano on this exciting initiative. The Renault Trafic Zumbaron food trucks represent the perfect opportunity for us to work together with our new brand ambassador to create a unique and tasty experience.

    “Adriano will be selling macarons directly from the Renault Trafic Zumbaron food trucks, but visitors to the Renault facebook page may download vouchers for free macarons, and enjoy some of these magnificent delicacies on us,” Justin said.

    “The first 200 voucher holders on each day will receive a free macaron, so it will pay to arrive early,” he said.
