Dominique Ansel is the world’s top patissier, so if you are looking to shake up your holiday baking routine, there’s no better guide.
Ansel, famous as the inventor of the Cronut, recently opened his first bakery in London’s tony Belgravia. In this Guardian story, he shares holiday baking recipes and reminiscences of Christmas in a small French town.
“…if you ask me what Christmas is, it’s childhood memories. You celebrate it more when you are a kid than when you’re an adult, so it’s very emotional. I wanted to bring some of that nostalgia into these recipes.”
His incredible Yuletide recipes for Champagne morning rolls, Jam and Butter croissant pudding, Gingerbread Alfajores with dulce de leche, Snowflake beignets with peppermint sugar and Chocolate Tres Leches cake seem to us to be memories in the making.
