Food lovers rejoice, because while we are justifiably proud of our chicken wings, there is so much more to the Buffalo culinary scene than hot sauce and blue cheese dressing. Start with enormous ethnic diversity, add in a profusion of local farms and orchards and a microclimate in nearby Niagara County that is ideal for fruit and grape growing and what do you get? You get great restaurants, delicious local specialties, wine trails, farmers markets, gourmet food shops, cooking classes, and more. Join host Nelson Starr on a quick tour of Buffalo's culinary wonderland.
Nickel City Chef takes place in one of the city’s best kept secrets - a fully restored turn-of-the-century warehouse on Buffalo’s West Side (home to Artisan Kitchens & Baths). Completely outfitted with two competition-worthy kitchens, this unique setting is the ideal location for guests to enjoy snacks and drinks while experiencing this one-of-a-kind cooking competition first hand.
The Anchor Bar invented the chicken wing in 1964. More than 40 years later, the Anchor Bar is still serving up this worldwide phenomenon to people visiting from across the globe.
