Donuts: An American Passion | John T. Edge
6 posts
Acclaimed food writer and cultural historian John T. Edge conjures nostalgia by revealing portions of our history through our most cherished foods. Donuts is the cap on a scrumptious series toting comfort food, belying calorie-counting, and embracing those cornerstone, iconic dishes that have come to define American cuisine and customs over the years. In Donuts, Edge walks us though the donut's inception as Dutch fare, the Salvation Army's wartime donuts, the invention of the donut machine, the 1950s donut-shop craze, the Krispy Kreme revolution, the appropriation by other ethnicities, and the fanatical chefs that take donuts to a new art form. Nothing encourages our sweet-tooth cravings like the donut. It is honest. It is satisfying. It is a national symbol that has survived the low carb-diet dogma and the death of the local donut shop, and it is making a comeback into the hearts of Americans.

There is an awesome place in Portland called Pips Donuts. They give you a dozen donuts for free on your birthday or a week after your birthday.

Since my husband and I both had to work on my birthday and our weekend was busy, we are celebrating today. Already made a stop at a comic shop and got me a little haul. Pic to come.

MelissaSasina 1. I was supposed to go to a wedding, but the kiddo is sick, so probably will be writing, reading, and gaming. 2. Donuts all the way. 3. Well, it's still early in the month, so I'm sure I'll finish the two short stories I'm planing to read, plus I'll be finishing one of my own projects. 4. Getting the new editions of my current series made me extremely happy. 2y
