Gift box of 9 Canele for $27

I’ll be doing a NYC canele round-up in the coming weeks but for now here’s an update from Dominique Ansel Bakery. What’s better than a fresh baked canele?  How about a whole sleeve of them in a glossy yellow box?  A large box of nine is $27.  To appreciate how much work and precision go into these delicious treats, take a look at this canele recipe from Syrup and Tang.

While checking out the new gift boxes of caneles, I checked out the new lemon praline eclair.

The frangipane filling in the almond croissant is excellent.  I learned that Ansel uses real vanilla beans to deliver the exact flavor profile he wants.  The crust is perfectly  flaky without dripping with butter.

Is this the best almond croissant in NYC?

Have your canele round-up pop by the 6th borough. Every weekend visiting New Yorkers tell me that the best canele are baked in Philly.

Why send your readers to that gas bag’s blog? Here’s a proper place to learn about canele:

No. I believe anyone should be able to wear whatever they expose appropriate.
