For Everyone Who Loves Donuts
on November 20, 2004
The Donut Book is, quite simply, delicious! Author Sally Levitt Steinberg (the "Donut Princess") is a wonderful historian of popular culture. Through the remarkable tale of her family's business, she tells us about the donut in science, art, philosophy, and 20th century America, and of the American dream come true. Along the way, we are treated to stories about donut shops, donut myths and legends, donut etiquette, and, most temptingly, astonishingly yummy donut recipes. I loved the photos and illustrations - I wanted to take a bite out of this book. It's a perfect book for the holidays, or any time you want to snack.
