I don’t eat fried foods very often, so when I do I want to really make it count. These Zeppole–Lemon Donuts with Powdered Sugar–from chef/owner Ethan Stowell’s tantalizing Tavoláta in the Belltown neighborhood of downtown Seattle are the perfect reason to fall off the healthy-eating bandwagon.
They’re light and lemon-y and utterly addictive. Just don’t breathe in the powdered sugar while conversing over the dinner table, or you might choke!
These Lemon-Sugar Donuts join the Made-to-Order Doughnuts at Dahlia Lounge (where they’re served in a paper bag for shaking the sugar, alongside seasonal berry jam and vanilla mascarpone) and the Vanilla-Dusted Donuts for Two at ART Restaurant and Lounge in the Four Seasons Seattle Hotel (which come in a box with sides of Fromage Blanc Sorbet and Northwest Rhubarb Compote) as very-sweet finales to any meal and our Dish of the Day.
