What We Are Eating Today: Dozen Donut Cafe

If you are having a tough day and want to give yourself a treat, try Dozen Donut Cafe, which serves the most delicious gourmet artisan donuts.
The cafe is the first Saudi artesian donut business in Alkhobar, inspired by versions from around the globe.
Instead of the traditional round variety, donuts come in a square shape with more than 12 flavors including raspberry, Nutella, vanilla custard, shortcake and cheesecake. They are handmade, with care given to the smallest details.
The cafe offers options that cannot be found in similar shops — such as custom letter donuts of different sizes, colors, topping, fillings and themes of your choice.
The business also offers three-layered donuts, baby donuts and XXL donuts made for special occasions.
If you were thinking of treating your best friend to a special celebration surprise, it’s worth considering the three-layered birthday cake donut, topped with a pink glaze and rainbow sprinkles.
The menu changes every month as they come up with new flavors such as citrus meringue, tiramisu, raspberry pistachio, blueberry swirl and crunchy crunch, a dark chocolate donut with crispy salty chips.

French-Tunisian star Sonia Ben Ammar joins the cast of ‘Scream 5’

DUBAI:Up-and-coming French-Tunisian singer, model and actor Sonia Ben Ammar has joined the cast of “Scream 5,”  it’s been revealed this week.

 According to Variety, production on Spyglass Media and Paramount Pictures’ upcoming relaunch of the  famous horror film franchise is set to begin later this month.

Filmmaking duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who are behind “Ready or Not,” are directing the forthcoming film.

The first “Scream” film was released in 1996, well before Ben Ammar was even born.  A smash hit upon its debut, the movie helped to revive the horror genre, becoming the highest-grossing slasher movie of all-time. 

This will be Paris-born Ammar’s first high-profile Hollywood gig as an actress. She along with other young franchise newcomers will be joining returning cast members David Arquette, Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell, who are all reprising their iconic roles as Dewey Riley, Gale Weathers and Sidney Prescott.

Plot details for the new film, set to debut in theaters on Jan. 14, 2022, are still under wraps,  so it is not yet known what role the French-Arab star will be taking on.

“I’m SCREAMing of excitement!! (sic)” wrote the 21-year-old on Instagram, announcing the news to her 730,000 social media followers. “Incredibly grateful to be part of one of my favorite franchises. 2nd photo is my face when I got the call lol (sic),” she captioned a screenshot of Variety’s article announcing the news and a blurry snap of her clearly overjoyed. 

However, it’s not the multi-hyphenate model’s first foray into the film industry.

Ben Ammar, who is the daughter of Tunisian film director Tarek Ben Ammar and actress Beata, previously starred in Guillaume Canet’s French-language film “Jappeloup” as well as the stage musical “1789: Les Amants de la Bastille.”

She’s also appeared in several music videos, including “Drivin’ Thru the Night” by DJ Petit Biscuit, as well as clips for her own singles, such as “Joyride” from her debut EP.

In addition to music, Ben Ammar is also a rising model, and has worked for many major brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Carolina Herrera and Chanel, among other prestigious fashion houses.
