Here’s a link to the talk I gave at the Durham County Library in November 2014. Learn about North Carolina’s rich donut past, as I trace our state’s contributions to donut history from Krispy Kreme through new gourmet shops like Monuts and Rise.
The Herald Sun also wrote an article about this talk.

For many the donut is a sweet loaded with memories. This is the beginning of a project to capture, preserve, and reflect on people’s donut memories. Memories included in these first two installments were recorded at Brooklyn’s City Reliquary during the opening events for the exhibit Keep Your Eye Upon the Donut: Donut Shops past & present of Brooklyn & Manhattan.

I’ve started blogging about donuts for Our State magazine’s new food blog Our State Eats.
Check out my latest post about North Carolina’s rich donut past and make a case for the donut being our offical state dessert.
My first post was about the innovative flavors Rise and Monuts, two new donut shops in Durham, are creating. Read it here. Stay tuned for more posts in upcoming months!
