When the inventor of The Cronut™, Dominique Ansel, asked his long-time friend Thomas Schauer to collaborate with him on his debut cookbook: The Secret Recipes, they decided stills alone could not fully capture the whimsy of this newly-minted pastry chefs famous concoctions. They needed to amplify ‘the play that comes with creating something great and ambitious, and the joyful, cathartic fun that fills your cheekbones when destroying ones own precious creations. They waged culinary carnage for several hours to celebrate where theyve been together but, in the end, ultimately captured the past to clean the slate, and make way for Chef Ansels next batch of deliciously mad ideas.Executive Producer: Tim Case, Thomas Schauer, Alexis KaplanTASTE Producer: Omar AqeelProducer / 1st AD: Nina SloanDoP: Thomas SchauerStyling | Props: Sahinaz Agamola-SchauerFoodstyling: Dominique Ansel, Alex Grunert, Jane Fort (Asst.)Stage: Hudson River StudiosCrew:Production Supervisor: Adrian MartinProduction Coordinator: Lisa DeFalco1st AC : John ClemensDIT : Joe BelackPhantom Op.: Steve RomanoRigger: Peter WeissProp: Tom NewtonGaffer: Glenn Miller2nd Electrician : John RaugalisKey Grip: Steve RamseyGrip: Garrett BoehlingChicken Wrangler: Cat LongPA: Jessica RobinsonPA: Dan CahoonPA: Ron PritchardPA: Alex HarrisPA: Thom DellaFaveCatering: Vienna Callingspecial thanks:Edi Frauneder/Vienna Calling, Albert Trummer and JB PrincePost Production :  ODD Executive Producer : Matthew Turke Supervising Producer : Suzanne PotashnickVFX Lead : Joe Laffey Editor : Stacey FosterAsst.
