I had an early start on Tuesday morning this week when I made a date for breakfast in the clouds with the lovely New York baker Dominique Ansel.
Perhaps best-known for inventing the Cronut, he has recently crossed the Atlantic to open a bakery this side of the pond. I was lucky enough (along with a few other foodie friends) to be invited into a special Dominique Ansel pod on the London Eye for breakfast in the sky.
We feasted on delicious salted honey tart with sea salt milk cream, frangipani and two local honeys as well as his famous Cronuts and fun cookie shots too. The sun shone and the city looked glorious, making it quite a welcome for the New Yorker.
It was lovely to hear his incredibly inspiring story and was well-worth the early morning
As ever, his menu for the newly-opened Dominique Ansel London is full of clever, creative and delicious patisserie inspired by local flavours & traditions, so do swing by his bakery on Elizabeth Street (between Victoria and Belgravia) – I promise you won’t regret it!
Don’t forget to follow him on Instagram too @DominqueAnselLondon, but be warned, it will induce serious sugar cravings.
