Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Krispy Kreme Doughnuts | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Nov 26, 2019
  • We bought the Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the beginning of the video at Penn Station. Normally, we'd advise you to never ingest anything that has at any point entered or left Penn Station (for your health and safety), but we always make an exception for Krispy Kreme. And this is solely because there is only one Krispy Kreme location in New York City. Join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

    Krispy Kremes are only good hot/warm. Once they've been on the rack, there's no use for them

    Why is she a pastry chef if she hates deserts & sweets. She haven't made a thing on this show that she didn't act grossed out by.

    There's nothing you can do to a Krispy Kreme donut to make it better. It's literally the best donut you can buy.

    Branded doughnuts are pre-cooked like sandwich bread and later slightly fried, and in the dough is used an emulsifier.
