Once devoured silently in the depths of the humble sports bar, chicken wings are now a national institution in the US, and are prepared with a huge range of marinades, glazes and dips. This book matches the stratospheric success of the chicken wing with a new level of fantastic flavour combinations. It begins with the reliable, nostalgic favourites and variants on classics, including Baked Bourbon, Smoky Chipotle and Buttermilk Fried Wings. Fancy your wings hot and spicy? Then look no further than Harissa Hot Wings and Habanero and Pineapple - the latter taking the edge off the super spicy heat. If you like to keep abreast of the bold new flavours out there, help yourself to another portion of Cola Wings, Sticky Lime and Maple Wings or the unspeakably decadent Dark Chocolate Mole Wings. Fancy something lighter and a little less outrageous? Then why not tuck in to the fragrant Baked Pistachio Wings or the deliciously subtle Lemon, Basil and Pepper Wings. If you've got a craving for Take-Out from the comfort of your own home, then Szechuan Plum Sauce Wings or Teriyaki Wings or Cajun Alfredo might be right up your alley.This book truly has something for everyone and something for every occasion.
