Cincinnati Doughnut Maker Credits THE FLAVOR BIBLE As Inspiration

Cincinnati doughnut maker Ben Greiwe of Starlight Doughnut Lab credits THE FLAVOR BIBLE as an inspiration behind his development of new doughnut flavors in this interview with WCPO Cincinnati:

In order to come up with new flavors, Greiwe polls his patrons and references THE FLAVOR BIBLE cookbook.

“I usually start with one kind of flavor,” he said. “This week I want to do hazelnut doughnuts. From there, I’ll look in the book — what other aspects go with that? I’ll see what else goes well with it and if I can put it into the doughnut or on the doughnut as a topping.”

Nine Giant cook taps creativity for Starlight Doughnut Lab

CINCINNATI – On New Year’s Eve 2018, Ben Greiwe sold his Starlight Doughnut Lab doughnuts for the first time, at Nine Giant Brewing in Pleasant Ridge. Since then, he has sold two kinds of doughnuts every Saturday at Nine Giant – he works there as a line cook – and every Friday at Pleasant Ridge’s Apricot Coffee House.

How to Marie Kondo Your Home Bar – InsideHook

Ten years ago, my home “bar” was a blue table repurposed from an ex-girlfriend’s apartment, stocked with whatever free bottles I had been gifted over the years, whatever cheap vodka I had purchased that week, an array of flat mixers and some bar tools I don’t remember buying and certainly didn’t know how to use.
