In Case You Missed It: Was The Cronut Invented In Worcester?

Saturday, July 06, 2013

"In Case You Missed It," GoLocal's Saturday feature, puts the week's top stories in one easy place for you to review and read. Check out what dominated the news cycle this week in Central Massachusetts and get all the details with these easy links.

In case you haven't heard, New York City has been buzzing about the latest dessert craze to hit the streets -- cronuts.

The croissant-donut hybrid has been wildly popular, with throngs of New Yorkers flocking to to SoHo baker Dominique Ansel’s eatery for the flaky fried concoction.

However, what many New Yorkers might not know -- but many Worcesterites already do -- is that Chef Alina Eisenhauer of Sweet has been making them for years as "dosants," stemming from a fateful night when she decided to toss leftover croissant dough into a deep fryer.

To read more about Worcester's place in the cronut craze, go here.
