MEET DOMINIQUE ANSEL BAKERY! CRONUTS OR SMORE

Monday, October 21, 2013

As we know New York City is not only known as the city that never sleeps, but the city that became the dream of  billion people want to visit, either for holiday, stayed for some quite time or probably being permanent resident. Besides, New York City always being a spotlight for other countries, because it represents the most up to date things, the uniqueness and sometimes NYC also being a trendsetter in fashion and culinary industry. Yes, as we known Cronuts become the most star-rated dessert for several months ago made by the talented chef Dominique Ansel and it spread worldwide. In Indonesia itself, lot of bistro or cafe try to served Cronuts as a delicious dessert and I don't think that the demands in Indonesia is the same like in NYC. I've been try some of the Cronuts from the different hotels and cafe, the taste was really different and it feels like donut rather than croissant. Anyway, I just wondering is the demand of Cronuts is still high or not? Let's find out...

A few weeks ago, finally I went to that famous cake and pastry, yes, Dominique Ansel Bakery at Spring Street, New York City. But, unfortunately when I just arrived there, all the Cronuts was sold out because the demand was still high, as the waiter said. I just wondering, the demand is very high high or most of food lovers trying to find something else? Because there was no queue line when I got there, it was just like an ordinary bakery. I was still curious with the bakery, so I got in and order some delicious dessert and looking for the ambiance though.
























Even I didn't taste the Cronuts when I got there, but the bakery served lot of beautiful desserts that I should and worth to try. One of them is DKA - Dominique's Kouign Amman, it's like croissant with sugar-top-caramelized as the topping; soft and flanky within, still yummy. And if you want another option, you can try some of these delicious desserts on the picture. All these desserts are sinfull but really tempting right? over all, the cost is not really expensive, range from $5 till $7 each. Enjoy ;)

DKA - DOMINIQUE'S KOUIGN AMMAN
And, here's the AMBIANCE, even the Cronuts was sold out, but their loyal customers still order some cakes and desserts by Chef Dominique. Dominique Ansel Bakery is quite big, maybe from the front door it might looked so small, but they have a garden in the backyard, as you can see from the picture. The garden is quite simple, dominated with white colours for non smoking area, they have smoking area on the left side also. It was a really nice place for having afternoon tea during break time.











SMORE = SOME MORE
Well, the good news from Chef Dominique Ansel is, now he's preparing the new star. From the information I've got, Chef Dominique will launch SMORE. SMORE is one of the favorite and an authentic American dishes, usually they eat it when they are in the camp, mostly for teenager I thought. The basic ingredients is very easy, it is a combination between marshmallow, cookies and chocolate, then you bake it. It's quite interesting right, wanna try? Well, that was my experience when I visited the bakery, and for the newest updates, I still don't know is it true or not... Let's see what happens next..
