Today was the 3rd Annual Springer Mountain Farms Southern Wing Showdown. If you have a love for wings, this was the place to be. If you have a love for adventurous flavors, this was the place to be. Basically you should have been there!
The sold out event featured 32 southern chefs, each putting their take on the all mighty chicken wing. After attendees tasted all of the wings, they then voted on their favorite.
There were soooo many amazing wings! Just when you thought you definitely tasted your favorite, the next chef blows your mind with another delicious wing! I personally had several favorites.
My most favorite was from Funk Seoul Brother with their Hot Honey Butter Korean Fried Chicken with Smoked Cashews and Mu Radish Bourbon Pickles. Oh what a tasty bite that was!!
The winner of the showdown was Canoe’s Chef Matthew Basford with his Sichuan Spiced Wing with Gochujang Honey Mustard. That was a tasty wing too!! Congrats Chef!!
Well I left a very happy and full girl! Can’t wait till next year!!

With food convention like this, who wouldn’t eat more than 30 things of same food? If it was Sweet Convention like made of chocolate, I would have emptied half of the convention. But I wonder after eating 32 wings, how is your stomach now? I hope you are all right.
Wow. Now I would have loved to do that. This post has made me hungry now.

I am not a wing fan in general, but most of my family loves them. I think they would go crazy if they got so many options.
