I caught up with Kamal Grant, the owner of Atlanta’s hottest doughnut shop Sublime Doughnuts several months ago, and it was definitely a treat. I have been waiting for the perfect time to post this interview, and this week seemed appropriate considering that I conquered my doughnut making issues earlier. I am calling this week my :Ode to Doughnuts!”

With a slogan like “Eat One That’s Worth It”, you definitely understand that one of Kamal’s Sublime doughnuts is definitely worth the caloric splurge. In 2012, Sublime was named “America’s Best Bakery” by Bake Magazine further confirming what all of Atlanta knew already: Sublime was leading the country in creating unbelievable doughnuts that are as equally unique as they are delicious. Check out my interview with Kamal below to learn more about how he turned his passion into a true success.

What started your love of baking?
I always liked to eat baked goods so I wanted to learn how to make them. Then, when I made them I realized they tasted much better fresh out of the oven.
