Visit New York: Dominique Ansel Bakery

Ever since the cronut craze, I have been obsessed with its creator, Dominique Ansel.  Ansel, who was awarded the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef this year is the chef and owner of the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City.  When a work trip took me to the East coast, it was one of the top places I had to visit.

Alas, it was a lot colder than expected with weather in the twenties and wind chill making it freezing.  I realize I am pretty driven when it comes to food, but I am not downright crazy.  Their website suggests you arrive at the bakery one hour prior to opening for the best chances of purchasing a cronut, which I would gladly do in warmer weather.    

Instead I planned my visit around their 3pm chocolate chip cookie shot, which also had a line albeit much shorter.  The chocolate chip cookie is shaped as a shot glass, lined with chocolate, and filled with organic vanilla milk from upstate New York.  Not only is it super cute to down with a friend, the treat is really delicious and the sweet milk is very yummy and reminiscent of childhood times.    

They bake right in their shop.
The DKA is Ansel's signature item and his version of the traditional Kouign Amman, a sort of caramelized croissant.
Some of the amazing pastries the bakery offers.  

Sad.  No more cronuts today.
But the cookie shot was of great consolation.
