Deemed by gourmands as the world’s most all-powerful pastry, the New York pastry is now available at Abu Dhabi’s Blossom Sweets.
The appetizing hybrid of a croissant and a doughnut, often called a ‘cronut’ is creating ripples in the capital’s culinary circles. For now, the chefs are dressing it up with nutella, salted nuts, rose and éclair flavours. But, the shop’s managing director Amna Al Hashly promises to introduce local flavours to this international favourite including a zesty zaatar one.
Interestingly, Hashly’s decision to put it on her menu came after a culinary pilgrimage to New York where she devoured the treat in its original home: The Dominique Ansel Bakery.
Dubai’s delivery-only Butter dessert salon has been dishing out the chic dessert was some time now, but Abu Dhabi’s sweet shop aims to make it a national trend. Another yummy reason to head to the UAE, we say!
