Dominique Ansel: The Father of the Cronut

Hosted by

Dubbed the “Willy Wonka of NYC” by the New York Post and “a confectionery Van Gogh” by Food & Wine, Dominique Ansel may best be known as the father of the cronut. His first cookbook, Dominique Ansel: The Secret Recipes, reminds us that he is more than his infamous hybrid. Earlier this year, Ansel took home the 2014 James Beard Award for “Outstanding Pastry Chef.”  A sister bakery to his New York outpost is slated to open in Japan.
