Since I’ve gone crazy for caneles recently, I thought it was worth noting that Jacques Torres’ Hudson Street store had a display of caneles on sale a few weeks ago. I asked if they were made by the only MOF pastry chef in New York–Jacques Torres. Surprisingly, I was told they were not made by Torres but by Florian Bellanger from Cupcake Wars and MadMac macarons.
The caneles were quite good although I think they had been out for some time and didn’t have any crust. At $2 each they did go very well with my frozen hot chocolate.
