[VIDEO] See How New York City's Most Famous Pastry Chef Makes His Most Popular Pastry

In this 10-minute video from our friends at Munchies, watch and learn as New York City's most famous baker and pastry chef Dominique Ansel makes his most popular item: the DKA.

James Beard Award-winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel stopped by the MUNCHIES Test Kitchen to make his signature pastry: the DKA, his take on the Breton pastry known as a kouign-amann, which now outsells the famous Cronut. Dominique shows us how to make a butter block and carefully work the pastry dough to create a perfectly caramelized crust and a flaky, chewy interior. He also shares stories from his childhood in France and explains why no one—not even his family—is allowed to skip the Cronut line.

Spoiler alert: It's all about using a ton of butter.
