Doughnut Road Trip — 09/01/22

Doughnut Road Trip! Whether you’re craving a cider doughnut at your local farm stand this fall, or you’re on a mission to find the wackiest doughnut flavor around, we set out to find all of the spots in southern New Hampshire where you can get handcrafted doughnuts at their most fresh.

Also on the cover Hannah Turtle gives you all of the details on “Gee’s Bend Quilts,” the newest exhibit on display now at Manchester’s Currier Museum of Art (page 14). Hippo cocktail columnist John Fladd discovers how several different gin brands produce variations on the classic gin and tonic (page 30). After a two-year pandemic pause, the Exeter UFO Festival is back to celebrate the 57th anniversary of the “Exeter Incident” (page 17).

Fall Harvests!
