Dessert Chicken Wings?

Tommy, March 7 2024

"Would you like to see the dessert menu?” It’s a question usually posed to me after I’ve eaten a 20-ounce steak, baked potato and token vegetable, which followed either a sausage and broccoli rabe or candied slab bacon appetizer. As a true Wingaddict, though, the entire word “dessert” has taken on an entirely different meaning to me lately. I...

Chicken Wings: A Blue-Collar Cuisine?

Tommy, December 16 2023

This morning I’m pondering an interesting question; Are chicken wings considered a low/middle-class, blue-collar cuisine? While my intention isn’t necessarily to ruffle feathers (well, maybe literally), these are the kinds of  things that come into my mind as I sit around and think about chicken wings 24 hours a day. Why would I suggest such a...

Tommy, October 27 2023

As we prepare to consume our 700th chicken wing flavor (on our quest to eat 1,000), its fun to look back at the journey which started just over 1,300 days ago. Like most normal(?) human beings, Doni, Ryan and I started our wing enjoyment many years ago with traditional hot wings. The good ol’ hot sauce-and-butter recipe that was born at Anchor...

Eye of the Beholder

Tommy, June 19 2023

For centuries, dating back to Plato, philosophers have suggested that we “eat with our eyes first.” In other words, the act of enjoying food starts well before it gets anywhere near our mouths. Surely great chefs and restaurant owners are  aware of this as they stress...

Tommy, May 9 2023

Ron Duff didn't invent chicken wings. Ron Duff isn't the founder of Duff's Famous Wings in Buffalo. Ron Duff is, however, in very large part responsible for the ever-spreading chicken wing phenomenon we all love and experience today. On Sunday, May 7, the world lost one of the wing game's most important pioneers at the age of
