In honor of her last day at Food & Wine, we compiled a list of recipes for Dana’s favorite foods. Pour yourself a craft beer (one of Dana's preferred beverages) and toast her with one or all of these delicious things.
1. Fried Chicken
Dana is on record as being a “fried-chicken freak.” This Creole-spiced recipe is extra-juicy thanks to a long brine in sweet tea and buttermilk. Frying it in lard gives it exceptional, crackling-like skin.

2. Chicken Wings
Yes, wings are technically fried chicken, but Dana loves them so much that they deserve separate mention. This recipe calls for spiking the wings with pungent Old Bay.
