Tis the season to give back…and eat Cronuts

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Partnering with DwellStudio Founder Christiane Lemieux, Chef Dominique Ansel created the Cronut™ Mission with proceeds benefitting God’s Love We Deliver.  Helping the hungry this Thanksgiving, seventeen New York tastemakers gathered together to design the Cronut™ boxes- each featuring two of Chef Ansel’s popular croissant-doughnut hybrids filled with pumpkin cream and topped with 24K gold leaf. The designers of the custom tulip-shaped boxes included Heidi Klum, Jonathan Adler, Simon Doonan, Amanda Freitag, Sandra Lee, Christiane Lemiuex, Joan Rivers, Peter Som, David Stark, Vicente Wolf, and the casts of Cinderella, First Date, A Night with Janis Joplin, Motown, Pippin and Rock of Ages.

Now live, these one-of-a-kind Cronut™ boxes will be auctioned off until November 26th, with bidding beginning at $100. Winners (who must be located in the NYC area) will receive their Cronut™ boxes on Thanksgiving morning.
