BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo residents are riled up about a Food Network host's comments about chicken wings.
Host and author Alton Brown recently appeared on First We Feast's internet series "Hot Ones." During the segment Brown was asked about regional dishes. He said food can suffer from local ideas and added that don't go to Buffalo if you want great Buffalo wings.
Brown joked that he wouldn't be invited back to Buffalo.
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — With enrollment in culinary institutes in decline and programs across the country closing their doors, schools such as the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont, which graduated celebrity chef Alton Brown, and the Culinary Institute of Charleston, South Carolina, are committed to staying relevant and in demand.
NEW YORK (AP) — Alton Brown thinks about food differently than you do. You don't get obsessive with hummus. He does. You don't research the long, weird history of nutmeg or put sumac in everything. He does.
You never considered having spaghetti in the morning. He did — and made it delicious. "Why aren't we having pasta for breakfast? I don't understand why we don't do this?" the TV chef and writer asked recently.
