The pastry chef who invented the Cronut and is best known for his Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York, is now bringing the concept to the UK.

The internationaly-renowned French pastry chef announced yesterday that he will be opening a bakery in London this year.

Legally the word Cronut (a hybrid between a croissant and a donut), has a pending global trademark filed by The Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York, so technically you cannot buy them anywhere else – until now.

Ansel said of the decision to set up in London: “Growing up so close to London [near Paris], I never had a chance to visit until I was much older and immediately fell in love with the blend of cultures and the spirit of the place.

“I’m so grateful at the chance to share a little of what I do with you all. We're looking for new culinary talent to join our team and to learn a great deal on our journey. Stay tuned, and we can’t wait to meet everyone and do our best for you.”
