What inspired the Cronut™? Where do you seek out inspiration for your other creative creations?
We create new things all the time here at the bakery, and change the entire menu every six to eight weeks. The Cronut™ was just one other item. I was making some snacks for our team during our manager's meeting and they requested a doughnut. But being French, I didn't have any tried and true doughnut recipes, so I decided to take inspiration from my roots and created the Cronut™. On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, he summed it up well. He said I made a "very French doughnut".
