Today is National Doughnut Day!
One of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles, Grace, has always made delectable doughnuts on Wednesday nights, but in honor of this special day, they have made up an $18 sampler platter of three raised doughnuts ($15 extra for wine pairing) good throughout this week-end. The trio of special doughnuts will include 1) a glazed plain with fleur de lys salted caramel with Bourbon pecan ice cream, 2) a pistachio cream filled, served with chocolate sorbet swirled with buttermilk cream, and 3) a chocolate, glazed with buttermilk and served with warm spiced milk with rum (for dunking).
To do something nice while enjoying a doughnut, go to Randy's in Inglewood (home of the famous big doughnut landmark) today for your doughnut and they will make a donation to the Salvation Army.
If all that seems too exotic or decadent, then stop by a Krispy Kreme for a free doughnut; you only get one free per person, but that doesn't mean you can't buy more (of course you don't have to eat them all at once or by yourself).
