Our October Cronut® for NYC will be: Cranberry Pistachio, filled with cranberry jam and creamy pistachio ganache. The perfect combination to kick off autumn. Starts October 1st in #Soho, but preorders are up now at for pick-ups 2 weeks out (and you can skip the line that way too). #Cronut #DominiqueAnselBakery

The simplest desserts still capture my heart: like this tarte aux fraises and a caille de Brebis with local honey.

We get asked all the time, but I don’t make very many wedding cakes. Only for couples whom I believe in and love. This one is for Jake and Alex. 😍

Another week of #croissant cross section tests. Every day our shops from all over the world send me a photo of their cut open viennoisserie. I look for an even honeycomb crumb, the right height and color, perfect microbubbles in cannele, the right placement of chocolate batons in our pain au chocolat. It’s a continual labor to keep things consistent. Today more than 2000 croissant photos in my albums. And we keep on going. Thank you to the hardworking teams of chefs. Here’s how everyone did this week! You all should be proud. #🥐

This SUNDAY, we’re starting off the first of our “What Mom Cooked on Sundays” dinners at @189bydominiqueansel. 4 Sundays of family supper menus, each representing the roots and traditions of our chefs. First up this Sunday 9/16: @Anthony_nicholas_stagnaro’s Italian supper. Think: Center-Cut Heirloom Tomatoes and Burrata with champagne balsamic, Arancini with mozzarella and hand-crushed pomodoro; Veal & Pork Meatballs with baguette breadcrumbs; Clams Fra-Diavolo with fire roasted peppers, and Two-Day Lasagna with bolognese, burrata, and fromage blanc. And for dessert? Anise Pizzelle with coffee mascarpone and Amaretto whipped ganache, Marsala, and fresh strawberries (and there’s plenty of wine to go around too). Reservations are up on and @Resy. See you at our family table. @189bydominiqueansel @TheGroveLA #sundaysupper #whatmomcookedonsundays #189byDominiqueAnsel

Thinking back to last week in Biarritz when I was tackling that fruits de mer platter starting with langoustines. (Demo in second slide)

Suckling pig and foie gras with all the Txakoli you can drink.

LA! We’ll be launching our What-a-Melon Soft Serve for the very first time on the West Coast TODAY starting at noon. A slice of juicy ripe watermelon, with hand-cut dark chocolate “seeds,” filled to order with our homemade watermelon soft serve, and now available daily starting at 12pm at @DominiqueAnselLA. 😎🍉🍦 #DominiqueAnselLA #whatamelon #softserve #icecream @TheGroveLA
