About Dominique Ansel:
James Beard Award-winning Pastry Chef, Dominique Ansel has shaken up the pastry world with innovation and creativity at the heart of his work. As Chef/Owner of eponymous bakeries in New York, Tokyo, and London, and Los Angeles, as well as his first-ever restaurant in Los Angeles opened in November 2017, Chef Dominique has been responsible for creating some of the most fêted pastries in the world. These creations include: the Cronut® (named one of TIME Magazine’s “25 Best inventions of 2013”), The Cookie Shot, Frozen S’more, Blossoming Hot Chocolate, and many more.
For his prolific creativity, he was named the World’s Best Pastry Chef in 2017 by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards. Food & Wine has called him a “Culinary Van Gogh” while the New York Post coined him “the Willy Wonka of New York.” He was also named Business Insider’s “Most Innovative People Under 40,” one of Crain’s “40 under 40,” and was bestowed the prestigious l’Ordre du Mérite Agricole, France’s second highest honour. Prior to opening his own shop, Dominique served as the Executive Pastry Chef for restaurant Daniel in New York, when the team earned its coveted third Michelin star and a four-star review from The New York Times. He opened his first shop in New York’s Soho neighbourhood in 2011 with just four employees.
“The holidays are about traditions and gathering around the table with loved ones, so we’ve created an afternoon tea menu that’s inspired by the festive season, with savoury winter ‘trees’ and sweet ‘ornaments’ so you can gather with friends and family over a cup of tea.,” says Chef Dominique. “Afternoon Tea has become a tradition of our own here in London, and we’re excited to start off the holiday season with a new menu that’s meant to be shared with the ones you care about most.”
