The original doughnut dog did not delight me. I believed that combining two delicious elements would magically created a super delicious result. Form plays a large factor in the flavor perception experience. For our second version we interlaced sliced hot dog and doughnut cuttings into a doughnut dog fritter. The assemblage allowed the dog and the doughnut to be separate and together. The flavor of the dog infused the doughnut. The doughnut supports the dog. Both became crispy on the outside and tender and decadent on the inside.
The difficulty is sharing the dog with our audience. The idea is still a bit over the top, if not delicious. Actually it's not the sharing with the audience. I believe it is more of a connecting with the audience and having the audience want to indulge.
