Primo’s Donuts, which has been a staple of the Los Angeles food scene for over 60 years, has teamed up with local chefs and restauranteurs on a limited-edition donut. Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of LA restaurants animal, Son of a Gun, and Jon & Vinny’s worked with Primo’s to develop several recipe ideas.
“The Buttermilk Bar here is my favorite, I think it’s the best donut in LA. Honestly, I was so excited when they called us about this. I’ve been a fan of Primo’s for a long time, I bring my kids here,” says Chef Vinny.
After trying 5 new creations, the favorite donut and the one that will soon make its debut at the shop is Curry Mango Chocolate Fudge. The buttermilk mango donut is covered in a chocolate curry fudge glaze and is topped with dried mango and mandarin orange zest.
“The Curry Mango Chocolate Fudge donut is an amazing combination of sweet and savory flavors. The mango is chopped and is infused into our famous buttermilk dough, topped with the curry chocolate fudge icing and then finished with orange zest,” says Ralph Primo Jr. “I’ve always loved Jon and Vinny's take on old school Italian cuisine--it's truly delicious. Since Primo's Donuts is also old school, I am honored to collaborate with such an iconic chef and restaurateur. Vinny was wonderful to work with, and he really made our old-school homegrown donuts amazing with this new flavor, it’s incredible.”
The Curry Mango Chocolate Fudge donut will be available at Primo’s Donuts from Friday, November 15 through Saturday, November 30.
