So, anyone who writes and photographs a doughnut recipe book--oh, Doughnuts: Simple and Delicious Recipes to Make at Home, from Sasquatch Books, for instance--is pretty much tops in my book.
But really, as awesome as you might figure such a person to be, author/photographer/doughnut maker Lara Ferroni is even better.
From the day I learned she was working on this project, I couldn't stop myself from constantly saying things like "Doughnut Stop Believing!" or "Just Donut!" whenever I saw her. And--bless her--she never got terse with me or punched me or anything.
And now the book's out! And it's full of amazing doughnut lore, factoids, recipes and mouthwatering photos. Which one to try first--a classic raised doughnut? Or perhaps something more exotic, like a Margarita, Red Velvet, or S'mores Doughnut? Here, preview it all in the promo video:
Well, one lucky reader can choose their own doughnut adventure, because I've got a copy to give away!
