Excellently researched history of doughuts and similar fried sweet foods (churros, bunuelos, yoyos, etc.). A real must for food-lovers

Great for giving as well as receiving 14 July 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great blend of readable, well-researched history and kitchen inspiration. My first recipe stop will be Dulce de Leche Raised Donuts with Salty Caramel Glaze. A perfect gift.
It's not the donuts 9 July 2014

Format: Paperback
An interesting book. As a Canadian, though, I must note that the section on Tim Hortons is slightly inaccurate. The reason Tim Hortons is a success in Canada is not the donuts - it's the coffee.
What a cute book! Great stories filled with much detail about the origins of this delicacy. Wonderful recipes for every kitchen. 20 Jun. 2014

I knew there was controversy about Kennedy's "Ich bin ein Berliner" statement, but I never heard the detail or the explanation. This little book clears it up. This book has an interesting story for everyone.
