La James Beard Foundation, institution culinaire américaine d’excellence, a décerné le prix 2014 « Outstanding Pastry Chef » à Dominique Ansel, le pâtissier français le plus apprécié des Américains, mondialement connu pour avoir créé les Cronut. En février, Le Monde lui avait dédié un bel article.
Inutile d’ajouter que son prochain ouvrage, prévu pour le prochain octobre, est l’un des livres de cuisine les plus attendus de 2014:
Creator of the CronutTM , the Cookie Shot, and proprietor of New York’s #1 rated bakery

Coming this autumn from Simon & Schuster is Dominique Ansel’s very first cookbook in which he blends his unique and widely-acclaimed philosophy with eye-popping photography and recipes that will enable bakers of many levels to make some of his incredible creations at home. He will share the recipe for The CronutTM – Dominique’s unbelievable marriage of a croissant and a donut that drives people to line up for hours outside of his Soho bakery every morning, has spurred dozens of copy cats, and has been covered by the international media, including but not limited to the UK, France, Japan, Spain, Italy, Germany and many more. Last month Dominique introduced the Cookie Shot – a cookie baked in the form of a glass that is served with a shot of milk inside – that has become his latest, queue-forming creation.
