This offer is available from 15 Jan 2014 through 31 Dec 2014.
In 2013, a new fusion food joined the ranks of the ice cream cake and turducken. The cronut is made of croissant-style pastry, fried like a doughnut, filled with cream and topped with a glaze. The dessert has transfixed foodies and was classified as one of the 25 best inventions in 2013 by TIME Magazine.
After being invented in New York, this sweet hybrid that bears the looks of a doughnut and the inner workings of a croissant has become all but a global sensation. Fans of the treat span across the world, from Berlin to Singapore, making it the most virally talked about dessert item in history.
Gourmet will offer seven cronut flavours – Lemon Cream with Red Currant, Chocolate and Brownie, Blueberry Compote with Cranberry, Cherry filling with Pistachio and Chocolate, Apple Crumble and Cookies and Vanilla Cream.
Specially prepared by the pastry chef for Asian taste buds, the Green Tea cronut will offer locals a familiar taste in a new way. Featuring a wide variety of colourful and delicate decorations on top, an individual cronut will be priced at RMB 18.
