I haven’t posted a blog entry in awhile, partly because it’s “mud season” here in the Catskills and there is nothing really interesting to discuss and partly because I’ve taken this time of year as the perfect opportunity to head out to vacation, and I just got back from a wonderful 10 day trip to San Francisco and Napa/Sonoma. Instead of writing a 20 page blog about everything I did, every experience I had and most importantly everything that I ate and drank I figured that I would tantalize (or torture) you, the reader about the events of my trip in different blogs.
When I touched down in SFO the first thing that I did (after renting the car) was to call Dynamo Donuts to make sure that they didn’t run out of maple glazed bacon donuts. Dynamo Donuts is arguably one of the best (if not the best) donut shop in the entire country. This aint your Duncan Donuts by any stretch of the imagination! I’m not usually a donut fan, and would never call a donut shop to ask them to “hold” donuts for me until I get there. But let me assure you, that once you eat one of these bacon donuts you will crave them regularly and you will call Dynamo if you have a morning arrival as well to make sure they don’t run out! These donuts are soft and crispy and sweet and salty all at the same time. I’m definitely going to make a test batch so that I can serve a variation of the maple bacon donuts at Catskill Maison in the future!
