WWWWWW #28 - Food With Legs

Yes, World Wide Web Wacky Wing Wednesday. WWWWWW. This is where I will surf the Web, and find other people talking about chicken wings. The world is full of chicken wing stories, wacky and otherwise. Recipes, restaurant reviews, eating contests or whatever. Today's Blog relating to wings in some shape or form:

What happens when you take a born and raised Torontonian who likes to dine out, cook, garden and write? You get Food With Legs. A blog about food - cooking it, reviewing it and learning more about it. Add some great photos and you have a great blog.

I came across Food With Legs because of his review of Crown & Dragon. I've been there twice (in 2008 & again in 2010). It's funny because it seems we both went to UofT, both went to Gabby's for wing nights too. For someone who doesn't regularly review wings, he did a great job explaining the flavours and detailing why he liked or didn't like about the wings.

Also on the website, Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip. A recipe he adapted from tips and other recipes - this thing is a monster sized option for Super Bowl parties. It's got everything - Buffalo sauce, celery, carrots, blue cheese, chicken and the key secret ingredient . . .

. . . Chicken skin. Brilliant. The fact he almost made these into serving cups just blows my mind.

Not directly chicken wing related, here is his Deep Fried Pickles he made with a turkey fryer. To me, these are an excellent side with wings, and these look so good.

Finally, to show you how cool Food With Legs is, he's been building a wood-fire oven in the backyard of the family cottage. To make pizza and other delicious food. This is commitment to great food. I want one now. That and a tandoor.

These are just some samples of the food that really interested me, but the blog is much more varied. Go check him out.
