WINDSOR'S WONDERFUL WINGS CONTEST 2004
It was back in 2004 when Biz X Magazine readers nominated 25 local establishments throughout Windsor and Essex county in an exclusive chicken wing taste-testing event conducted by a select panel of 14 judges from Windsor's business community.
Of course our wings were nominated.
Only 15 of the nominees dared to show up for the showdown on June 15 at "The Other Place Catering Reception Centre" on Walker Road for the title of "the best wings in town". The samples were scored for appearance, sauce, tenderness and quality of meat.
How did our wings fair?
We placed 5th overall but it should be noted that all 4 entrees which finished ahead of us were dressed with either breading or sauce on the wings. Hence, we had the best "naked" wings in town!
In the sauce competition, our bar-b-q sauce took 2nd-place and we placed 4th in appearance. Of the top 5 finishers, our price per wing was the second lowest ... so you know who gives you more bang for your buck.
The event organizers from Biz X Magazine did an extraordinary job ensuring fairness in all aspects of the event. Nominated restaurants brought their samples in at scheduled times to guarantee freshness, the judges were unaware of whose wings they were tasting, the judges themselves were from all walks of life and our samples were handled by professional chefs. It was totally a first class event and we are definitely looking forward to a re-match. Visit www.bizxmagazine.com for details.
