In our most recent podcast, olive magazine editor Laura Rowe meets Dominique Ansel – the man behind the famous Cronut (croissant meets donut)

olive's podcast, 2nd September 2016


This week we have a whole episode dedicated to Dominique Ansel, the man behind the Cronut, the game-changing pastry of the last century. Listen to editor and host Laura Rowe take Dominique on a tour of Borough Market and get the inside scoop on his new London bakery, opening this September.

Discover the new dishes they'll be selling, the history of the Cronut and how Dominique got into the industry. Plus, find out what Dominique thinks of a traditional British pasty!

On Friday 30 September Dominique Ansel will open his first London bakery, giving Londoners a taste of the world famous Cronut®. Dominique is also treating Brits to exclusive pastries and creations inspired by British classics. Queue up to try Banoffee Paella (an upside-down banoffee pie made in a paella pan), Welsh rarebit croissant using Guiness Worcestershire cheddar béchamel, and a Korean lunchbox-inspired eton mess treat with mousse and jam strawberries, mini meringues, fresh basil and fromage blanc.
