Wings Galore!! That is exactly what I walked into last weekend at the 1st Annual Springer Mountain Farms’ Atl Wing Fest. One thousand wings were provided to 25 chefs, for a wing battle like no other. ATL Wing Fest, produced by Taste of Atlanta, was also a collective effort to benefit Atlanta charities, Angel Flight Soars and Second Helpings Atlanta.
The sold out event was held at the beautiful, Foundry at Puritan Mill. As I approached the venue, the wonderful smoky smell of chicken wings cooking immerged from the Big Green Eggs in use on the patio. Inside, the space was bustling with excitement. There was a lot of finger licking going on. I was ready to get my fingers covered in these delicious wing offerings presented by these awesome chefs.
The wings were amazing! Table after table I was even more amazed. The flavors were creative, classic, and just plain fantastic! My vote, and Wing Fest winner, went to Cotton & Rye with their Southern Fried Wings Dusted with Sumac & Spicy Orange Blossom Honey. They got my vote with just one bite! So good!! Next time you’re in Savannah definitely check them out!
The 1st Annual ATL Wing Fest seemed to be a huge success. I will wait patiently for the next year’s wing celebration.
