Yup, the paper of record reached out to Dessertbuzz to talk about Dominique Ansel’s cronut. Not sure who sent them to me but we were the first entity outside of the DAB staff to try one.  The review from that visit was published on Serious Eats NY.  The photos shown here have been published around the world on about a million websites for the last three weeks.

The Bunny Religieuse from Dominique Ansel Bakery

This past Tuesday, March 26, I became a contributor for one of my favorite New York food blogs, Serious Eats NY.  I’ll be posting anywhere from 2-3 articles a week for their “Sugar Rush” column that features desserts, sweets, chocolate and bakery items in the five boroughs.  The column is currently helmed by the prolific Kathy YL Chan.  If you’re a regular reader of DessertBuzz make sure you stop by and say hello.

Dominique Ansel Bakery is just one of the many bakeries to donate pastry for the sale this weekend

Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood was one of those particularly hard-hit by the storm. Among the many businesses ravaged in the historic tempest was Pastry Chef Hervé Poussot’s Almondine Bakery, a local favorite destination for authentic French pastries. Among its many kudos, it has been voted Best NYC Bakery, Best NYC Baguette, and Best NYC Croissant. Due to the loss and damage, Almondine is struggling to stay afloat. (more…)

Mont Blanc from Dominique Ansel Bakery

Hot-off-the-presses snaps from some new items at Dominique Ansel Bakery. Hopefully, later this week I’ll report on the desserts from Star Chefs Pastry Competition competitor, Ashley Bruaze from DB Bistro Moderne.

The Mont Blanc, despite being named after the highest mountain in the alps (see, you can learn something from a dessert blog!), is actually a light-ish dessert.  You could easily have a slice of the new extra-large kouign amann along with this and enjoy both.   If you need some savory to break things up you can add some dairy-free mushroom soup.

The Apple Marshmallow from Dominique Ansel Bakery $11.50

The special-for-Halloween, Marshmallow Apple from from Dominique Ansel bakery is one pretty cool bit of pastry.  It’s beautiful to look at and fun to eat.  Bring this as a gift to your next Halloween party and your hosts are sure to be grateful.
