Sweet tooths, assemble. Pastry chef Pierre Roelofs and his team of wicked enablers are resurrecting their legendary dessert evenings, shattering our halfhearted plans to cut down on the sweet stuff. Oops.

After five years at Cafe Rosamond in Fitzroy and a short stint at Milkwood in Brunswick East earlier this year, Roelofs' dessert extravaganzas are making the move to a new home: Mina-no-ie. Hosted at the cosy Collingwood cafe for three nights in October, diners can expect a four-course degustation — the catch being that all four courses are dessert.

The menu is top secret and changes every time. We can tell you that previous evenings have involved ridiculous concoctions of mascarpone, strawberry, honey, orange, cardamom and speculaas, as well as a deconstructed bread and butter pudding served in one of Roelofs' famed dessert test tubes. The dessert evenings will take place on October 26, 27 and 28 with sittings at 7pm and 8.20pm. You'll need to book in advance — so for the love of the dessert Gods, do so right away.
