- "The Dubuque resident figured bleu cheese went well with chicken wings, so he spent two weeks creating a chicken wing that was drenched in bleu cheese."
- "Evans eventually discovered the wing should first be cooked with a dry rub and then be dipped in a bleu cheese batter that included the signature cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise."
- Fellow cook Iris Wegmann spent a month perfecting her peanut butter and jelly chicken wings . . . Her wings, which were steamed, grilled and deep fried, were especially created for the wing festival. "Who doesn't like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?" Wegmann asked. "Why not put it on a wing?"
- "Everything from foreign peppers to apples to powdered cheese was used by some of the 23 chefs who gathered in downtown East Dubuque for the annual WingFest."
First: WingFest is an awesome idea.
Second: I don't know how I feel about those wing flavours. They sound . . . well I would be curious to try anyway.
Third: I need a chicken wing fix, its been a while. I need a chicken wing festival.
