Tampa’s Dough competes in Cooking Channel’s Donut Showdown

A&G sat down to chat with Tina Contes Donut Master and general manager at Dough Bakery in Tampa, about her experience in Canada, competing with other dough master for the chance to win $10,000 in Cooking Channel TV show Donuts Showdown.

Tina told us that the opportunity started from a Tweet exchange between Food Network Canada’s Donut Showdown and the owner of Datz bakery and Dough, which took about a month and a half before they received confirmation to participate on the show.

Cooking Channel flew Tina and Datz chef Andy King to Toronto to compete on the reality competition series with other Donut Masters to create a doughnut using a mystery ingredient (bourbon) in one hour.

“It’s hard to make the best donut under pressure and not in your own kitchen, especially using a ingredient that may not react well with dough, ” she said.

On their tree days stay in Toronto, Tina and Andy toured the city and savored local food at St. Lawrence Market — National Geographic ranked as the world’s best food market destination with over 100 vendors, bakers, butchers & artisans, with produce & antiques on weekends.

Find out if Dough Bakery in Tampa will win Donut Showdown’ — air locally on the Cooking Channel on Thursday, Jan. 8 at 9 p.m.

If you are in the Central Florida area on Friday, stop by Dough and sample a bourbon-inspired doughnut from the show, as well as meet Tina and Andy. You may want to get there early because they will only be there while supplies last.
