Dominique Ansel's Cronuts

When Mr. Mari and I went to Chicago for our eating trip, we ate - or tried to eat 17 donuts - in two days. That’s right. Do-Rite Donuts, The Doughnut Vault and Glazed & Infused were where we stopped to indulge, scratch that - gorge on - some fried, sweet dough. However, had Dominique Ansel started making his cronuts (half croissant/half donut) back then, I may never have gotten on that plane and stuffed my face silly in the Mid West. Leave it to a Frenchman to up an American classic.
