Food Calendar Today in 1977, July 29 was proclaimed by the City Of Buffalo, New York as Chicken Wing Day. Buffalo is the logical home of the Buffalo chicken wing, but beyond that stories differ as to how hot wings were invented. Most of the stories credit the Anchor Bar's owner Teressa Bellissimo with the creation. Buffalo-style chicken wings are cut into their natural three segments. The wing tips are discarded. The drummette and the two-bone "flat" sections are seasoned and fried, without a batter. Then they're tossed in a sauce made by emulsifying butter (or margarine, say some people) into Louisiana-style hot sauce. The ensemble is completed with blue cheese dressing (or just blue cheese) and celery sticks. The fast-food industry grabbed hold of Buffalo chicken wings as soon as it was clear that they'd become popular. Of course, they messed around with the formula, using a batter on the chicken, sometimes using boneless "wings" (really cut from other parts), and leaving out the blue cheese or celery. And you don't even want to know what the sauce is made from. Hot wings are sold all over America now. Here in New Orleans, the chefs at Mr. B's came up with a great variation" same dish, but with oysters instead of chicken. Ralph Brennan, on whose watch that was developed, took the idea with him to the Red Fish Grill, where it's become a signature dish. Delicious-Sounding Places Chicken Hill is in the Cascade Range in the northeastern quadrant of Oregon. It's one of the highest peaks in the area, rising to 6989 feet. The mountain is mixed woodlands and open country, with enough four-wheel-drive roads to allow one to drive to near the summit. A fire burned about twenty acres of woodlands near there in 2008. Chicken Hill is a far piece from civilization. If you want to eat some chicken in a restaurant, the nearest one is Sumpter Nugget, 19 miles away in the town of Sumpter. Edible Dictionary chicken Divan, n.--A casserole made with chicken and broccoli, baked with a veloute made with chicken stock and sherry, crusted over with cheese. Invented in the 1930s in the Divan Parisien in New York City. It's said that the dish made broccoli popular in the United States, but that is at least questionable. Although it was considered elegant in its day, chicken Divan is almost extinct now, as casseroles of any kind have been relegated to the back burgers of home cooking. Click here to ask about a food word you've wondered about. Deft Dining Rule #432: Only order chicken on the bone. If the chicken dishes in a restaurant all involve boneless, skinless chicken breasts, none of them will be very good. The Saints This is the memorial day for St. Martha. She was a contemporary of Jesus and Mary, who actually visited her at home, according to the gospels. For that reason, Martha is a patron saint of almost everyone in the hospitality trades: cooks, waiters, hoteliers, servants, laundry workers, maids and butlers. Music To Eat Carefully By On this date in 1974 Mama Cass Elliot, the soaring female lead voice of the Mamas and the Papas, died of a heart attack. It was rumored (but untrue) that this happened while she was eating a ham sandwich. What a voice to lose! Swinging Into Dinner On this date in 1988, the last Playboy Club in America closed its doors. The Playboy Club was a chain of allegedly swinging restaurants owned by Hugh Hefner's Playboy Magazine. The waitresses wore the famously revealing bunny outfits. We had a Playboy Club in New Orleans in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was on Iberville Street next to La Louisiane. Among the people who worked there was Joe Cahn, the Commissioner of Tailgating, who ran the bar. After it closed, it became Anything Goes, probably the silliest concept restaurant ever to open here. Except for its last few years, you had to be a member to get into the place. I dined at the Playboy Club only once: a private party for the staff of The Driftwood, the campus newspaper at UNO. I remember an overcooked filet mignon. Food Namesakes Steve Frey, a pitcher for the Phillies, was born today in 1963. . . Nancy Kassebaum Baker, formerly a U.S. Senator from Kansas, was born today in 1932. She didn't use her married name in the Senate. . . Today in 1676, Nathaniel Bacon was accused of being a rebel, after he organized British colonials to fight the Indians. Words To Eat By "Do not be afraid of simplicity. If you have a cold chicken for supper, why cover it with a tasteless white sauce which makes it look like a pretentious dish on the buffet table at some fancy dress ball?"--Marcel , French chef and cookbook author of the early 1900s. I think he was thinking of chicken Divan there.
