New York City butcher shop Hudson & Charles recently teamed up with the Doughnut Project to create an unusual pastry stuffed with roasted bone marrow. While donuts have been made with everything from booze to foie gras, this latest pastry mashup ups the ante with a meaty chocolate filling.
The new Doughnut Project creation is a yeast-raised donut covered in a clementine glaze and orange-infused chocolate flakes. While the donut appears ordinary from the outside, the inside is anything but. Embedded in the center of the donut is a rich chocolate pastry cream that is made with roasted bone marrow. Although it may seem like an unusual ingredient to use, the bone marrow gives the filling an an ultra-smooth texture.
The meaty new creation demonstrates the growing demand for unexpected twists on familiar food items.
