Did you get a Cronut last night?
While I was sleeping off a long weekend covering South by Southwest Interactive, hundreds of badgeholders queued up for a taste of the Cronut, Dominique Ansel’s famed pastry that was the most talked-about food trend of 2013. Ansel was in town for the event at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel, sponsored by Allison+Partners, where he also showed off a new creation: a chocolate chip cookie baked into the shape of a cup so it can hold a shot of milk.
Multimedia producer Tina Phan stayed up way past her bedtime to shoot this video of the Cronut party, including an interview with Ansel himself.
And if you missed your chance to try the Chocolate Chip Milk Shot, no worries; Ansel says he’s planning on bringing it back to his Manhattan bakery as an afternoon special.
