Bouchon Doughnuts is A Go On Saturdays

Bouchon's Chocolate Doughnut
Dear God or Thomas Keller, I would like to please live as close as possible to Bouchon Bakery. In the Mandarian Oriental would be preferred, just as long as I can smell when their making the doughnuts on Saturday morning...

Oh the Bouchon Bakery, so full of promise, so easily lets me down, but not this time. Well, sort of. It started with a wacky idea I had early Saturday afternoon (more on that next week), where I ended up at Bouchon Bakery around 4:30 later that day. An earlier visit to their website reminded me of their doughnuts, only available Thursday through Saturday until they run out. Surely they'd be done by late afternoon, no? No. Still there, not as fresh, sitting out all day, waiting to be picked and eaten, not that I'd ever turn down a doughnut. According to unnamed sources, the best day is Saturday since that's when they get "the good ones", meaning Thursday and Friday's only consist of the brioche doughnut. My chocolate frosting was old and gummy, but the cream inside, oh, so creamy vanilla delicious. I MUST try these fresh, preferably tomorrow.

Sad to hear that the chocolate frosting wasn't all that. It looks so good. Hopefully the fresher frosting is tastier. I generally don't go for the cream filled doughnuts, but I want to try that one.

This is not fair. Why aren't donuts (or anything you post on this blog, for that matter) good for you?! I want. But can't have. SO sad.
