Cronuts Wire

cronut-ql-0514.jpgTomorrow marks one year since chef Dominique Ansel gave the world the Cronut. The New York Post plots a timeline that takes a look back at the year from the emergence of knock-offs to someone paying $14,000 for a dozen Cronuts at a charity auction. Grub Street asks Ansel about the moment he came up with the hysteria-inducing pastry and he reveals that he can't really remember when it happened and "there was no Eureka! moment."
