Buffalo wings were created in Buffalo, New York. One story goes, buffalo wings were first prepared at the Anchor Bar by Teressa Belissimo, who owned the bar along with her husband Frank. Upon the unannounced, late-night arrival of their son, Dominic, with several of his friends from college, Teressa needed a fast and easy snack to present to her hungry guests. It was then that she came up with the idea of deep frying chicken wings (normally thrown away or reserved for stock) and tossing them in cayenne hot sauce.
This vegan version has all the taste of the original version, but not the meat. Adapted from Joni Marie Newman, a great game snack! Joni has some great recipes!
