We spent a morning in Astoria, NY, with the “Donut King” himself, Chef “Scottish” Francis, at Sugar & Water NYC. We learned the ins and outs of what an average day looks like for the executive chef at his shop and how to create the perfect donut.
This may not be the first time you have seen Chef Francis on your screen—he was originally crowned the “Donut King” on season 5 of MasterChef ! Chef Gordon Ramsay fully approves of his donuts, so we had to give them a try. From the signature rainbow cookie donut to the Maple Bacon Dossant (a cross between a donut and a croissant)—and for our Star Wars lovers, the baby Yodonut—Sugar & Water’s collection of donuts is out of this world, as well as creative, beautiful, and absolutely delicious! Johnnies, we cannot wait for you to give them a try.
