BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — For the first time in 12 years, the National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival has offered a meatless alternative.
Thousands of chicken wing lovers flocked to the poultry mecca of western New York on Saturday to experience the latest and greatest in wings — including hummus dip and breaded green beans flavored like the real thing.
Local chef Steven Binks tells The Buffalo News (http://bit.ly/149KPto ) the trick is in getting the right mix of Frank's Original RedHot and gorgonzola cheese.
The two-day festival features more than 130 different styles of wings, live music and wing-eating contests.
Event founder Drew Cerza said 40 tons of wings will be served up by two dozen restaurants from across the country.
Among the eateries is Buffalo's Anchor Bar, considered the birthplace of Buffalo-style chicken wings.
