Bobby Flay thinks doughnuts are underrated lately. Everyone is suddenly on a health kick, but doughnuts are a very important part of cuisine, in my book, he said at the after-party for the new Tracy Letts play, Superior Donuts. Even the play, about a doughnut shop in Chicago, gives doughnuts a bad rap, he said. Think about it theyre fried, theyre sweet, they have a fantastic flavor, a great contrast in texture. Whats better than a doughnut? And it goes great with a cup of coffee! Could health fiends add a few doughnuts to their diets? Yeah, just serve it with yogurt, Flay suggested. So where do he and his wife, actress Stephanie March, go for a doughnut? There was this Krispy Kreme that was really 200 yards away from our apartment. Im sad its closed now, March said. Flay went with a foodier favorite, Doughnut Plant, who catered the party: They're really good, he said. And theyre fried, March added. Let's not forget theyre fried.
