Curry week, Sausage Week, Chip week and Cheese week must all bow down to the hallowed time that is National Donut Week, happening 12th-19th May.
London favourite Selfridges sell fine bread and donuts from Fergus Henderson’s St John’s Bakery – including the bloggers favourite and utterly addictive custard donut; to celebrate National Donut Week the bakers are producing seven extra flavours, normally only available from ultra-chic, under-the-radar new London food market, Maltby Street.
The must-try donuts include apple and cinnamon, apple and rhubarb, fresh strawberry jam, lemon curd and a brand new chocolate donut.
Now – if you’re far away from a Selfridges, then fear not – during National Donut Week we’re pretty sure almost any donut will do – but we do have one stipulation: the donut must be fried, not baked, it makes all the tasty difference – and donuts should be a treat, not a health food! St John donuts, available 12th-19th May, priced at £2.49, from Selfridges.
