It's official — Curtis Stone is bringing a slice of L.A. to Sydney with a sweet one-day pop-up of The Pie Room by Gwen. The acclaimed celebrity chef has teamed up with Cadbury Australia on a new vanilla key lime pie block, and will be hosting a day-long dessert-centred event to celebrate.

Setting up in Alexandria's MECCA Cafe, the pop-up will offer free samples of the decadent new creation on Friday, May 24. Head in from 1pm to snap up your freebie, as well as a chance not only to try The Pie Room's much-celebrated key lime pie that inspired the block, but you also might even run into the Michelin-acclaimed chef himself.

"I was introduced to key limes in the United States. I love their sweet and tangy taste," said Stone. "When I started making and selling my key lime pie recipe at my bakery, The Pie Room by Gwen in L.A., it quickly became a customer favourite." And it's this beloved recipe that's inspired this zesty new collaboration, which sees a smooth vanilla and lime-flavoured creme coating a chocolate biscuit piece and covered in Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate.

If you can't swing by or are unable to secure yourself a bar — or slice — you won't have to wait too long before you can enjoy the new creation. The chocolate blocks will be available for purchase at Coles stores nationwide from Wednesday, May 29, priced from $6 a pop.

You'll find The Pie Room by Gwen's one-day pop-up open from 1pm at MECCA Coffee, 26 Bourke Road, Alexandria, and you can secure your spot to ensure you don't miss out at the event's reservation link
