The Great Donut Dough-bate, New York version

Hosted by

In 2014, Wylie Dufresne closed WD-50, the Lower East Side restaurant known for its high-concept modernist cuisine. Now, the chef has a new donut shop in the William Vale hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Du’s Donuts is a tip of the hat to DuFresne’s great-grandfather, who made donuts at a diner in Rhode Island for decades. On a recent trip to New York, Evan invited Dan Pashman to taste Du’s artfully crafted cake rings alongside longtime players in the New York City donut scene: Peter Pan Donut and Pastry Shop, The Donut Pub and Doughnut Plant. Pashman is the host of a super-engaging podcast about all things food called The Sporkful.
