Cronut™ from Beauvais, France to New York, London, and Los Angeles

Cronut™ from Beauvais to New York and when in LA!?

Yes, I admit it, I resisted posting about Cronut™  Because to me a donut is a donut and a croissant is a croissant but then, I found out that the creator and inventor of the Cronut™ Dominique Ansel is originally from my hometown in Beauvais, France a little city North of Paris.  And that made me feel very happy and a bit proud too. Bravo Chef for your pioneer and entrepreneurial spirit!  I promise I will taste one.

What is a Cronut™ you may ask? Well quite simply it is a hybrid between a donut and a croissant. It’s basically half a croissant mixed with half a donut, and voilà ” The Cronut!™”. ( Beware of imitations 🙂 It took the chef more than 2 months to perfect his viral creation and more than 10 recipes.

Dominique Ansel ‘s Cronut™ created in 2013 from Beauvais, France  to New York, London, and Los Angeles USA. Check out also Dominique Ansel Bakery in Soho, NY  and his latest cookbook in the works!
