Last year, I was lucky enough to swing by the legendary Dominique Ansel Bakery in SoHo, New York — birthplace of the cronut and home to some of the most modern takes on classic desserts in the world — the experience was magical. But it isn’t just a novelty confection or a fun twist on some oldies that gives this bakery its edge. 

Behind the counters of the tiny open-kitchen, a team of intensely involved and creatively talented bakers and pastry chefs are constantly pushing boundaries to create delectable new knock-outs to keep customers coming back. 

That’s the real secret to Dominique Ansel’s success.

Sorry, Magnolia, you’ve been banking on those cupcakes for 15 years. Change it up.

The Poached Pear launched it’s experimental kitchen in Karachi last year and, since then, there’s been no looking back for Masala TV star and owner, Chef Yasha Siddiqi.  Relying heavily on customer feedback, the team at The Poached Pear is well-known for endlessly tweaking and refining recipes, creating a careful selection of sumptuous, mouth-watering desserts that fly off the shelves. 

The Fresh Fruit Pavlova, clouds of perfectly soft, chewy meringue, generous dollops of whipped cream, crowned with gorgeous seasonal fruit, is their best-seller, the rich Belgian chocolate and salted caramel tart is to die for, and their recently introduced brownies with mint white chocolate sound totally tempting. 

In fact, The Poached Pear has been such a hit that what was Initially launched as an order-based service is now expanding into their first full-service brick-and-mortar bakery location, slated to open soon.

Looks like someone’s killing it with their dessert-game.
