I present to you the Monaka Matcha Cookie. Pleasing to the eye and to the tumtum, it's available exclusively at Dominique Ansel Tokyo. This beauty is a chewy matcha cookie with pineapple jam and a crispy, thin rice wafer shell. If I were to ever fall overboard while riding a luxury cruiser, I'd want somebody to toss this to me instead of a life preserver. Granted, there's no way it would fit the circumference of my belly, it wouldn't help me float and there's an extremely high probability it would disintegrate the second it hit the water - but I'm stubborn and won't change my mind. I think it also contained crushed pistachios. I like pistachios. Do you?
Dominique Ansel's Cronut flavour for the month of August: Raspberry & White Peach Ganache. 🥐🍩 The Cronut® is a unique creation by Chef Dominique Ansel, named the World’s Best Pastry Chef of 2017, that many have described to be a croissant-doughnut hybrid.
In London, you can try them at Dominique's Bakery located in Belgravia. But be there early, as they only bake one batch per day and it usually runs out by 1pm.
