Who is Terry Peters?
He is a man who does the impossible. Think 1/3 Tony Stark, 1/3 Steve Jobs and 1/3 Richard Branson. He's out there doing it. He's changing things. He wears a suit.
"Terry Terrance Peters, Esquire is a world-renowned food innovator, best known for creating over 400 new foods.
Peters was born in Hay River, Northwest Territories. As a baby, Terry was diagnosed with megapapillaetis, a one-of-a-kind condition that gives Terry over 900% more taste buds than any other human being on Earth.
After graduation, Terry started Terry Peters, Inc., and converted his parents’ garage into a food laboratory/culinary school without their knowledge. By 1986, working on a shoestring budget of $40, Terry made a breakthrough by bioengineering the seedless watermelon. Speculation over the seedless watermelon caused so much frenzy when Terry Peters Inc. launched its IPO that it made Peters a millionaire overnight.
Monetary success wouldn’t slow Peters down. His next innovation, “Piggies in a Blanket,” commissioned by the British High Council, would spark “TerryMania” across the UK in the summer of 1987.
Peters would continue to innovate and elevate food, becoming the first person to wrap a scallop in bacon in 1990, and the first person to “mix greens” in 1993. He’s been credited with inventing beer-battered onion rings in 1995, adding the second deck to the double-decker sandwich in 1996, and popularizing skewered food from 1997–1998.
In 1999, he helped NASA develop a new menu for the space program, creating full meals in pill format.
In 2011, Boston Pizza, one of Canada’s largest casual dining chains, approached Peters about creating a new kind of chicken wing, one that would revolutionize watching hockey and drinking beer with buddies. The result was what many, including Terry, consider his crowning achievement: the world’s first all-meat wing. “Terry Peters took the bone out, and put more meat in. Genius. And, you’re welcome,” says Terry Peters.
Terry Peters is on tour promoting the new ALL MEAT WINGS to sold-out venues across the world. If you can’t see him live, you can try his latest innovation, ALL MEAT WINGS, at your local Boston Pizza. Find a location at BostonPizza.com."
Here is a timeline of some of his accomplishments:
As of today, Boston Pizza is unveiling Terry's newest creation: ALL MEAT WINGS.
I was fortunate enough last week to get a sneak preview of this creation and commercial - and Terry wrote to me personally:
What does an ALL MEAT WING look like?
