This slushy, icy Valentine’s Day morning, Cronut creator and all-around dessert genius Dominique Ansel surprised the men and women waiting in line for his signature hybrid pastry with roses. This further proves what we’ve been thinking for a while now: that Ansel would be a total dream date. Here, a few more reasons why Ansel is NYC’s leading Romaker (that’s a Romeo-baker hybrid).
He keeps things exciting. Ansel changes the flavor of his Cronuts every month. This month it’s raspberry lychee.
He’s complex. Even though he is known for his sugary creations, Ansel isn’t really a fan of sweets.
