- Doughnut Plant has some fun holiday doughnuts like pomegranate yeast and cranberry cake. Serious Eats taste tests them.

- The story of the man behind Shake Shack and the burger joint's wild success with a great quote from Danny Meyer:  “The whole experience is to cram people into a cookie-cutter space, to feed them as many unhealthy calories as possible — then get them to leave. That stripping away of human experience? That is where fast food went astray.” The article also includes the news that more Shake Shack branches are coming in the future to the Upper East Side and Midtown (44th and Eighth!).
