Since debuting his sustenance-themed miniseries last summer, James Deen Loves Food, the multifaceted porn star has revealed himself to be quite adventurous in the kitchen. For his latest stunt, he’s adding a more of-the-moment hybrid food to his repertoire of lobster-and-caviar burritos and turducken hot dogs: the bronut. Deen released his “Deenut”-themed episode yesterday, which includes detailed instructions on how to make Dorito, beer, and Sriracha–flavored doughnuts. Though we’re not yet blown away by his culinary prowess, we do appreciate his cavalier attitude: “Today I made doughnuts,” he wrote on his blog last week. “They were fucking gross.”
