Okay, here's the deal. Sure I can see the appeal of a donut using the same flaky dough as a croissant, or croissants shaped out of fried dough. However, I am unsure why it's a big deal to "counterfeit" such delicacy. We're they afraid that people would go all foodie and try to add bacon to them? Sriracha? POUTINE? What? What the fark is the big deal? WHY DO YOU INSIST ON EMBARGO?

The cronut, equal parts donut and croissant, inspired numerous knockoffs and lines of salivating foodies after Ansel introduced the world to it last May.

Isn't this just what a honey cruller is?

People can't get those in New York?

No - crullers (at least, the crullers I know) are made of choux-paste (an egg-based batter) and absolutely delicious in their own right.  Cronuts are made of croissant dough, a yeasted, laminated form.

That said, I've never found the idea of a fried, sugared croissant appealing.  I'd rather have a good, freshly made cruller.

I thought cronuts was what you got from a hooker in Thailand.

The old Thai lady down the road at the donut shop has been making these forever. Depending on the day you can even get them with a sausage in them, like a pig in a blanket.

It must be hard being a world-famous chef of his class. Managing to balance an elephant-sized ego, a good whisk, and what must be a 50lb silk scarf of pretentiousness just has to be a daily existential struggle.

I don't think Gordon Ramsay is as pretentious as this guy. That's saying a lot.
