Picture_for_blogMemory of my first and last visited at Dominique Ansel Bakery 2012. There was no Cronut….I was happy to eat Macarons and Canele….. oh god (>_<)”

I’m the only food blogger in NYC that has never had a “Cronut”

I came to the Dominique Ansel Bakery with my pastry chef friends when it first opened. Chef and owner Doninique Ansel used to be the executive pastry chef for Daniel Boulud at his restaurant Daniel where he created my favorites Raspberry Balsamic Macaron and Canelé. The first (and last) time I was patrolling here they didn’t invent the world famous Cronut yet!!!!!!!!!!!!! The place wasn’t even busy. We sat at an outdoor table in their back garden room where we enjoyed a relaxing afternoon of catching up on food, fashion, and our love life ~ I’m sure you’d love to hear our gossip, but let’s talk about the Cronut now!!!!!

Well, I have nothing to say about it because I still have never had one. There, I said it!!! I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. For many years people have talked about how good Cronuts are and I avoid to comment because I am still the only food blogger in New York City (or maybe the entire world) that has never had a Cronut. (>_<)””’ Even if I had them now I’m too embarrassed to post about it two years after the craze. I have never even seen them in the front case! Now you can even order them online. The most ludicrous thing is that it is a 10 minute walk away from where I live so I have no excuse. I keep saying that I’m waiting on my friends to go get them with me. I’m really hoping someone will send me a box of Cronuts for Christmas. Then I won’t have to wait in line at 6am camouflaged in sunglasses and a hoodie so no one can tell it’s me… oh gawd!!!!!!

If you’re looking for the new “IT” pastry at Dominique Ansel Bakery, it’s the “Cookie Shot”. It never became as infamous as the Cronut, but it’s quite popular to this day.       189 Spring St, New York, NY 10012
