Soon, there will be two places in the world to buy an authentic, bona fide Cronut. As the opening date for pastry genius Dominique Ansel’s Tokyo bakery nears, Ansel is teasing out details about the menu and space on Instagram. Last night, he revealed the flavor of the first Cronut of the month: Hokkaido Milk Honey Ganache with Yuzu Lemon Cream.
The flavor actually sounds quite interesting. A yuzu lemon cream sounds simply delightful, and when coupled with a milk honey ganache sounds like it could be quite addicting. Hopefully, as previously discussed, the sugar levels will be low enough to whet the average Japanese appetite. Too sweet, and it will be eaten once and summarily discarded. Made just right, and there will be hour-long lines from now through eternity.
