Who really does the best wings?
Europe’s biggest chicken wing show-down is coming to Manchester to provide the answer to that burning question - who really does the best wings? On the 14th & 15th September at First Street, competitors from across the UK will work their culinary magic in a bid to be crowned the King or Queen of the Wing.
Wing Warrior's of Manchester will battle it out to be to crowned King or Queen of Wings in two categories:
Best Buffalo Wing
Described in the North American dictionary, from where this mighty morsel hales, as "Deep-fried wings coated in a spicy sauce." Of course to those in the know, this description simply doesn’t do this wonderful creation justice and the search for the best out there is fiercely contested across the world.
Best Wild Wing
This category is looking to explore and demonstrate the many exciting ways a chicken wing can be prepared and served in the broadest sense possible. In this category anything goes. Any flavour, any technique, any taste. Basically the rule is, there are no rules.
The culinary warriors battling it out in 2019 are a mixture of street food vendors, pop up legends, and restaurants from all over the UK.
All wings are £1 each and will be sold in individual joints (drums or flats) to allow voters to try as many wings as possible from each of the contestants. Ticket holders vote for their favourite wing using the Wing Fest app. Please remember to download the app when the new update becomes available in August.
For the greediest of wing eaters among you, the always popular Wing Eating Competition will be taking place on both event days.
Dr Sweetsmoke’s deadly Lava Wing Challenge, which is renowned for the carnage its causes, will also feature on both days.
Information on how to sign up to the eating challenges will be sent via email to ticket holders as well as being posted on info points around the event. Competitor will have to adhere to strict rules to make it even more of a challenge!
You can expect entertainment such as live blues and rock music, bourbon master classes, axe throwing, bbq cooking demonstrations, as well as DJs playing summer party vibe tunes into the night.
