You got your bacon in my doughnut!  This unique pastery came from Nords bakery in Lousville, KY. The road is tough sometimes, but it wasnt rough enough this time for me to have a taste.
Plenty to choose from. I love pasteries, so this morning I was wonderfully content while taking photos for an upcoming article.
Why yes, I will eat that. Author Dan Chaffin takes a big bite of the bacon doughnut. Amazingly, he didnt need to be cajoled into eating it.

It's always nice to get a good meal when you're on the road. I'm in Louisville, KY right now shooting photos for an upcoming article with furniture designer and maker Dan Chaffin. He and his business partner, Matt Frederick, have been great hosts and have taken me to some fantastic restaurants. I've eaten cajun, cuban, and down home delicious deli. This morning, though, might have taken the cake. Or dougnut, as it were.

Matt arrived at the shop carrying a large box of pasteries from Nord's, a local bakery. Among the tempting delicacies was something none of us had seen before: A dougnut topped off with maple icing and a piece of bacon. That's right, a piece of bacon. Dan, his wife, and Matt all had a bite or two.

In my younger and more decadent years, I would have gladly eaten it, but not anymore. I did, however, enjoy a huge piece of apple strudel that was write-home-to-mom good. So I don't regret skipping the bacon pastery. My only regret is that I can't take one of them home for Tom Begnal, Fine Woodworking's resident bacon fanatic.
