At a City Harvest benefit last night, Cronut Emperor Dominique Ansel auctioned off eight of his milk and cookie shots. Although these treats are not anywhere near as popular as his fried tubes of laminated dough, someone still bid $6,500 for them. So, that's $813 for a pastry treat that usually sells for $3 a pop. Ansel is definitely the man to call if you're organizing a charity auction...
In other Dominique Ansel news, the May Cronut flavor is "blueberry lemon verbena with Greek yogurt ganache and lemon verbena sugar." Check out a picture here.
