In a city known for great food, Blue Star Donuts is a standout. Whenever visitors ask for recommendations, Blue Star Donuts is inevitably on the list. And not just because I have the opportunity to work with them, but because their donuts are truly a bite of luxury. Chocolate Valrhona Crunch, Hard Apple Cider Fritter, Matcha Green Tea, and Blueberry Bourbon Basil are just a handful of their inventive flavors.
For National Donut Day, Pastry Chef Stephanie Thornton created these sumptuous, limited edition Rose Donuts. Made with a rosé wine and rose water glaze, they are sprinkled with fresh pistachios and candied orange atop the fluffy brioche donut. As delicious as they are beautiful and such a pleasure to photograph!
