Baked Buffalo Wings

This past Sunday, Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas broke her own world record in competitive wing eating at the 10th annual National Buffalo Wings Festival in Buffalo. According to the Huffington Post, the 100-pound power eater triumphed over hot dog-eating champion Joey “Jaws” Chestnut by consuming 183 chicken wings in 12 minutes. It takes much less chicken (and fewer calories) to make an awesome meal from our hot-and-spicy Baked Buffalo Wings, with classic blue cheese dressing and celery.

In this week’s "What Not to Do," Kristin Donnelly, editor of F&W’s Well-Being, reveals why variety and vegetables—not deprivation—are the keys to keeping up a healthy food regimen. It’s all about eating the nutrients in colorful foods, like this fragrant Green Chicken Masala, with cilantro, mint, jalapeño and garlic. The coconut milk adds fat, but Donnelly explains why that’s OK too.

On the season finale of No Reservations last night, Anthony Bourdain explored Louisiana’s Cajun Country, ate street-food noodles, and shot a pig. As is customary, Eater transcribed Bourdain’s one-liners, like his thoughts on “the origin of New Orleans' street noodle dish, yakkamein: ‘Maybe broke-ass and too lazy to go out, some early innovator tried to recreate the dim memory of Chinese noodles with what he had around.’” Filter out the sass, and there are always plenty of delicious bits to crave on the show. For Cajun inspiration, here’s a fast recipe for Chicken-and-Andouille Étouffée, a classic stew over rice.

New York’s Spanish-cooking star Seamus Mullen (an Irishman by way of Vermont) opened his new spot, Tertulia, in the West Village last week. Eater interviewed the Next Iron Chef finalist this afternoon about his inspiration and the importance of authenticity when it comes to Spanish cooking. “To me, this place is authentically New York,” says Mullen, who will incorporate great local ingredients into his recipes. What’s most important to us is that his food is delicious, like this recipe for Chicken Salad With Piquillo Dressing.

Continuing a casual dining streak this summer, President Obama stopped for takeout last night while on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. He and wife Michelle picked up dinner at Nancy’s Restaurant, which sells beach-shack seafood plates with fried clams and grilled chicken sandwiches from a snack bar window. Apart from being easy, simple dishes are often deliciously crave-worthy, especially with summer accoutrements, as in F&W’s warm grilled chicken sandwiches with mozzarella, basil and deep red tomatoes.

Chef Michel Nischan—who co-founded The Dressing Room in Connecticut with the late Paul Newman—is continuing to help those in need gain access to fresh food through his Wholesome Wave Foundation. According to the Atlantic, the program, which doubles the value of food vouchers when used at farmers’ markets, now operates in 30 states. With national greenmarkets booming, in number and literal abundance, using local produce to prepare Nischan’s Skillet Chicken with Summer Succotash is an easy way to celebrate the chef’s work and culinary acumen.

“I don’t go away,” the tenacious Jamie Oliver tells his profiler in the September issue of Outside magazine. The beloved Brit, who transformed England’s school lunches with healthier, less processed foods, hasn’t quite swept across the US with equal success. But while low ratings endanger the viability of a third season of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC, Oliver isn’t giving up on the American school system. He maintains his battle cry that delicious food can be quick and uncomplicated, and his Simplest Chicken-and-Leek Stew is no different.

This afternoon, superchef Marcus Samuelsson stopped by the Food & Wine Facebook wall for a live Kitchen Insider chat. We learned his secret-weapon spice mix (berbere), and the chef even dished on what he ate last night: Fried Yard Bird at his restaurant Red Rooster in Harlem. Samuelsson previewed that preparation in this Food & Wine video, calling it “the crunchiest, the crispiest, the best damn chicken in all of New York City.” It involves an immersion circulator, a piece of serious cooking equipment used to cook foods sous vide at a consistent low temperature. Samuelsson then fries the meat, twice.

It’s probably best to try his fancy bird at the source, but home cooks without high-tech kitchens can still experiment with double-frying in this recipe for Crispy Twice-Fried Chicken, from Samuelsson's fellow NYC superchef Zak Pelaccio.
