‘Native ingredients are known for being sharp, stark and distinct in flavour, often reflecting the landscape of their origin,’ Min, former owner of N2 Extreme Gelato, said.
‘Given the lamingtons Australian icon status it seemed only right to pair this beloved cake with native herbs and spices to create the ultimate Australian dessert.’
There are nine new lamingtons to choose from, including the Finger Lime Meringue which consists of lime curd, vanilla cream, dipped in torched Italian meringue.
The Chai & Pepperberry features date and chai jam, vanilla cream, dipped in white chocolate and coated with coconut shreds and pepperberry.
The Black Sesame & Wattle Seed has been dipped in white chocolate while the Honey & Macadamia has honey butter with toasted macadamia with white chocolate and coconut shreds.
