Episode One: Crew and King, The Tosca Tart

Located at His Majesty’s Theatre, the home of West Australian Opera, Crew and King present the Tosca Tart named after one of the world’s most beloved operas, Tosca.

Whist this opera is quintessentially Italian; set in Rome, sung in Italian and composed by the renowned Giacomo Puccini, the tart was originally created in Sweden and has long been a favourite Scandinavian sweet. Crew and King Head Chef, Tony Turner, has added his own twist on this almond flavoured treat with hints of limoncello and a bittersweet apple bite, inspired by Tosca herself.

Available at Crew and King cafe, His Majesty’s Theatre from Monday 15th June to Friday 19th June
