Award-Winning Pastry Chef, Dominique Ansel Is Heading To Vegas

Award-winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel is set to bring his creative culinary talents to Caesars Palace Las Vegas with the opening of Dominique Ansel Las Vegas, set to open next summer.

"I'm thrilled to be heading out West and opening a new shop in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace next year. We've known the Caesars team for several years and truly believe that we're aligned in quality and creativity to bring something special to visitors and locals alike," said Dominique Ansel. "We're quite conservative in where we choose to grow and open our shops, and at the end of the day, it's all about the team you build. There's so much talent in Las Vegas and we're excited to be amongst some of the best. As with all our shops, we'll be developing brand new items inspired by our new home and limited-edition exclusives just for Las Vegas, so expect some delicious surprises."

Chef Dominique is responsible for creating some of the most famous pastries in the world, including the Cronut®, which was named one of TIME Magazine's "25 Best inventions of 2013." The following signature items will make their Las Vegas debut at Dominque Ansel Las Vegas:

The Cronut - the unique croissant-doughnut hybrid creation.

DKA (Dominique's Kouign Amann) - similar to a caramelised croissant, the DKA features tender, flaky layers inside and a caramelised crunchy crust outside.

Cookie Shot - a warm chocolate chip cookie shaped like a shot glass, filled to order with homemade cold-infused Madagascan vanilla milk.

Frozen S'mores - a centre of Madagascan vanilla bean ice cream covered in crispy chocolate feuilletine, the Frozen S'mores are then wrapped in honey marshmallow and torched to order, served on a smoked willow wood branch for that authentic campfire flavour.

With items baked fresh daily in a brand-new, state-of-the-art kitchen, guests will smell the intoxicating aroma of Dominque Ansel Las Vegas throughout Caesars Palace. Café-style seating will be available for those wanting to indulge immediately as well as an extensive retail area, perfect for picking up treats for friends and family, or simply for sweets on-the-go.
