Chef/Owner Dominique Ansel Bakery and @DominiqueAnselKitchen. What I eat and what I cook (not always what you think). 🇫🇷🇺🇸🇯🇵🇬🇧

A cookie right about now is a good idea... I get asked a lot if I eat my own desserts. And the answer is: 🍪


Starting work on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Pie Night, and more. But dropped everything to braid my little niece’s hair on her last night in NY.


It’s that time of year: PIE NIGHT is coming back to @DominiqueAnselKitchen. This time, we’ll have 4 weeks of Pie Nights: Wed & Thurs, Sept 12-13, 19-20, 26-27, and Oct 3-4. Unlimited slices of pie (10 kinds, including sweet and savory!), apple cider sangria that we’ll top off for you throughout the night, ice cream to make your slices à la mode, and a few other surprises. Tickets launch next FRIDAY, AUG 24th at 12pm ET at via @Resy (tip: be logged into your Resy account in advance for faster checkout). #DAKPieNight #DominiqueAnselKitchen #pie #🥧

Gotta love my @dominiqueansella team. When they heard NY was doing #SummerMarche - a weekend celebrating all fruit tarts from local farms - they said they wanted to do it too. And then they taught me what a peacotum was: Peach, plum, apricot mix. (Stay tuned for #SummerMarcheLA coming Labor Day weekend.)


Tender Soy Brown Butter Braised Pork wrapped in banana leaf; fluffy Coconut Rice with kaffir lime-infused coconut milk and a hint of chili; and Papaya Avocado Salad with fresh sliced papaya, avocado, and a sweet mustard dressing. Just a few dishes from our Hawaiian Luau menu this Friday & Saturday nights at @189bydominiqueansel.


T-minus 3 days until our Hawaiian Luau at @189byDominiqueAnsel (this FRIDAY & SATURDAY evenings). Here’s a preview of our Spam Musubi Tempura, with a slice of Spam surrounded by fluffy rice and nori, battered and gently fried until crisp. reservations are up at and @Resy. #luau #HawaiiinLA #189byDominiqueAnsel #LosAngeles #TheGroveLA


Fast becoming one of our favorite places in LA. Just simple rich chicken soup, rice, and kimchi. Salt and scallion to taste.
