THE CRONUT MAKES A TASTY RETURN TO ROSEWOOD-JEDDAH
Luxury Jeddah hotel re-introduces guests to world famous delicacy throughout the month of October
Jeddah, KSA, 18 October 2015: The world’s most popular pastry invention is back at Rosewood Jeddah. Due to popular demand, the cronut is available again at Soleil Café, offering hotel guests and visitors the ultimate indulgence in sweet, flaky, sugary treats.
The cronut is a fusion between a sweet doughnut and a crumbly-layered croissant. The delicious pastry was created at a bakery in New York City in 2013, receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews and praise. Later that year, it was recreated by the culinary team at Rosewood Jeddah and available for the first time in the Kingdom.
Amjad Yousef Al Ghandoor, Executive Chef at Rosewood Jeddah has perfected the recipe, ensuring consistency and freshness every day. He said: “We received so much positive response when the cronut was first introduced to the hotel. It made perfect sense to bring the famous pastry back for those who can still remember the delicious sweet taste but also those who missed out the first time. We expect huge demand and very happy customers.”
Now available at Soleil daily from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m., the sugary sensation comes in three mouth-watering flavours, chocolate, caramel and cinnamon, to suit all sweet tooth tastes and cravings.
Hans Peter-Leitzke, Managing Director of Rosewood Jeddah, said: “We always like to pay attention to how our guests rate our products and services. The cronut is one of the items that they’ve really taken to and now we’re delighted to be serving it at Soleil once again.
“It’s our way of showing that not only are we listening to our guests but also that we will continue to present unique, delicious items to establish ourselves as leaders in the food industry.”
