I love being a part of a college alumni network. I went to a slightly traditional school where many of my classmates were ... Southern and slightly traditional. There's no doubt I did things a little differently but I'm so excited to see the rise in awareness and the recognition of food as something that transcends all majors and daily life, the importance of being involved in our local food systems, agriculture and entrepreneurship blossoming at Wake Forest University.
For their Fall 2014 issue I stand among other food alumni to share my favorite tailgating recipes. We're not the best at football but being in the South you know you're eating and drinking well. .
Makes 1 dozen wings
1 quart vegetable oil
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 lb. chicken wings
1 cup buffalo sauce
Heat oil to 365 degrees F in a high sided pot. In a small bowl combine flour and salt. Toss wings in flour. When oil is at temperature add wings, a few at a time, working in batches until they are brown and cooked through, an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from oil and toss in buffalo sauce.
