The inventor of Cronut® lands at Yann Couvreur

Unless you’ve spent the last 6 years on a desert island (in that case, welcome back), you cannot have missed the Cronut® phenomenon. This hybrid creation, half-croissant half-donut, that has created the buzz at the four corners of the planet, is the brainstorm of Dominique Ansel. Installed in New York since 12 years, elected best pastry chef in the world by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards, he is back in Paris for an exceptional weekend with his friend Yann Couvreur. Hurray.

And the sugar star has not returned empty handed. His signature treats will be available exclusively from the 17th to the 19th of May in the Marais boutique. For the first time France, fans can taste his Frozen S'more (€7.50), string candy guimauve with an ice heart burnt with a blowtorch; his Cookie Shot (€5), a glass-shaped cookie to bite into after having sipped the warm vanilla Tahitian milk inside and his famous mini-madeleines that will be distributed for free to all the clients.

Dominique Ansel is taking advantage of the event to present a world preview of the Pretzel Mousse Cake, a bretzel with a soft caramel on a crispy flaky base with peanut butter #OMG (€8.50).

How about the Cronut®? It will be offered to the 15 clients who have nabbed the golden tickets d’or up for grabs each day, just like Willy Wonka!

Dominique Ansel x Yann Couvreur, from Friday the 17th to Sunday the19th of May 2019. Exclusively at La Pâtisserie du Marais.
