It’s quarter to two and I have to leave in 45 minutes to set up at the Sunday feast. All my cooking is done…on to quality control. After sampling a few bites of a croissant I decided to get on the exercise bike (boooooring!) and catch up on the New York Times (I did not solicit this shot…my husband thought I looked adorable. *Blush*). Croissants will definitely make you fat. You have been warned.
On to the food section. An article with the word “fry” in the title caught my attention. And then…sheer happiness hit me. Mark Israel, owner of the doughnut franchise/empire Doughnut Plant, was given full props in the article, which can be read here.
I only once had the pleasure of eating Mark’s humungo doughnuts. That was 2000 when my friend, Saci Dulal, was working at the Doughnut Plant. Not only were they great, but they were also free! Saci, a Bengali native who was not used to the traditional Homer Simpson diet of the average American, got nice and plump eating doughnuts round the clock.
Mark’s doughnuts, which are sold throughout the world at Doughnut Plant franchises, are all pure vegetarian (no eggs or gelatin!!!), totally beautiful, opulent and fattening. The way a doughnut should be.
