Another interesting link on Buffalo wing history

While doing some research, the Wing Authority found a pleasant little rundown of Buffalo wings history. Here’s our hat tip to The Kitchen Project and a link to their Buffalo wings story:

Naturally, the writer pays homage to Theresa Bellissimo and the Anchor Bar where Buffalo wings originated. He also points out that Mrs. Bellissimo used Frank’s hot sauce, which by 1964 had been around for decades,¬†for her invention. It’s amazing to think of how fate brought together these perfect elements. Let us bow our heads in gratitude for such a miracle.

Thank you, dear readers, and don’t forget to OBSERVE AND PRESERVE THE BUFFALO WING TRADITION!
