Black Sesame Goodness at Patisserie Chanson

I've talked about the creamy eclairs and rhubarb studded custard from Patisserie Chanson but my favorite treat in the entire bakery is actually the Black Sesame Kouign Amann.

Golden, flaky strands of pastry brushed with butter and sugar than stuffed full of sweet, nutty black sesame seeds.  It makes a satisfying little crackle when it's pulled apart and exposes those speckled pockets of goodness inside.  I love black sesame so these are absolutely perfect for me.  However their Kouign's are also available in plain, gianduja and rhubarb & thyme jam.

Mornings are always delicious with Patisserie Chanson in the neighborhood.

How have i not been here yet...?! The cheddar onion rye bread sounds fantastic too... and since they're so close to city bakery perhaps a side by side of the everything croissant is in order.

A side by side is a fantastic idea! Might have to get a little crazy and add in Daily Provisions Everything Croissant as well. Make it into a croissant crawl of the Flatiron/Gramercy area:)
