Socially Distant Food Fest Will Bring You Chicken Wings From Tyra Banks, Snoop Dogg, Anthony Anderson And More

Published

Can’t host a food fest this year? Ain’t no thing but a chicken wing.

The annual Wing Fest, hosted by Off The Menu, had to get creative when it came to this year’s food festival. Since 2020 has just been one giant epic fail after another the public cannot convene in one space to enjoy the scrumptious snack that is the chicken wing. Rather than canceling or postponing the event, Off The Menu has partnered with Uber Eats to create the Wing Showdown: a fundraising event where consumers vote for the wings that belong to their favorite celebrities.

Beginning on July 29th and running through August 2nd, celebrities like Tyra Banks, Snoop Dogg, Anthony Anderson and Haylie Duff will partner with restaurants so their wings can be delivered straight to your door. Each celebrity contestant will also post a video sharing their recipe on the Showdown site so you can make each variation from home if you prefer a truly distant experience. Here’s what each celeb has cooked up:

  • Shaquille O’Neal – Shaq’s Big Chicken Hot Wings come coated in Nashville-style hot sauce
  • Haylie Duff – Haylie’s Honey Buffalo Wings feature a Texas-style dry rub and a sweet-and-spicy buffalo sauce
  • Jessie James Decker – “Just Feed Me” Chicken Wings are Jessie James Decker’s wings, which come grilled and spiced with Cajun seasoning
  • Tyler Cameron – Tyler’s Tangy Wings, from Tyler Cameron, get smoked in a brown sugar dry rub, then tossed in BBQ sauce
  • Snoop Dogg – Get Tha Chip” Fried Chicken Wings are Snoop’s signature wings, and they’re coated in potato chips and then deep fried
  • Phil Heath – Mr. Olympia’s Cheat Meal Wings are Phil Heath’s wings, fried and tossed in a honey Sriracha glaze
  • Anthony Anderson – Anthony’s Sticky, Garlicky Salt & Pepper Wings are Anthony Anderson’s wings come twice-fried and doused in garlic sauce and three types of pepper
  • Zac Posen – The “Wingin’ It With Zac” option is Posen’s signature wings, and they’re topped with a honey and soy sauce blend
  • Tyra Banks – Tyra’s “Smize With Your Wings” are fried and tossed in a sweet-and-spicy maple glaze
  • Jo Koy – Koydobo Wings are Jo Koy’s wings, and a take on his family’s Filipino adobo chicken recipe

Once you’ve tried all 10 wings…ok I guess you don’t have to try all ten but what else do you have going on in quarantine?!…then simply go to the Off The Menu site to vote. The wings range in price from $12-$16 with proceeds from the contest going to charities like the Center For Policing Equity. And don’t worry if you’re not based in L.A, the Wing Showdown spans over nine cities this year NYC, Atlanta, Houston, Chicago and Toronto.

POLL: YouTuber Tyler Oakley Made A 12-Minute Video Ranking Different Ways To Eat Potatoes So We Have To Know Which Is Your Favorite?

Is your spud a stud or a dud?

The potato is really the Meryl Streep of the food world. It is grounded, versatile and adored by many. I’m sure Meryl wouldn’t necessarily like being compared to a root vegetable but it’s not like I’m comparing her to Brussel sprouts. In any event, with all of the ways to enjoy a potato, whether it’d be mashed, fried, baked, boiled or sipped (here’s looking at you Vodka), it couldn’t hurt to have a definitive ranking of all the ways you can enjoy a spud. Well luckily for us YouTuber Tyler Oakley created a nearly 12-minute video dedicated to just this.

In the video, which Tyler describes as “controversial,” the viral sensation breaks down 20 different forms of potato and ranks each one from “God Tier” to a big, old, stinking F. Tyler comes out swinging by stating he does not like the classic baked potato. I feel I have to oppose this strong start because while a baked potato may not be the fanciest way to enjoy the carbohydrate, it is like the little black dress of the potato world. It can be dressed up, dressed down, accessorized and perfect for any occasion. For those keeping track I have now compared a potato to both an Oscar winning actress and a fashion staple. The video continues on with some more controversial tater-takes, hilarious commentary and only two contenders making it to the “God Tier” ranking.

So we want to know, how do you like your taters?

Vote on the poll below to see just how popular your potato is.

The Newest (Strangest) Viral Food Hack Involves ‘Milking’ Cucumbers

Published

on

We couldn’t figure out a less innuendoed term for this?

There are too many obvious puns with this one so let’s just dive right in shall we? There is a new food hack sweeping the internet and it involves “milking” cucumbers.  It sounds odd and looks worse but it’s supposed to make your cucumbers taste less bitter. Didn’t realize that was such a problem we were facing but hey, I love a good hack regardless of how insignificant it may seem.

TikTok user @basicallyperkfect shared the trick after learning it from her sister in law. Apparently, if you cut off the tip of a cucumber and rub it together with the remaining cucumber, a milky, white residue will build up and draw out all of the bitterness from the gourd. The TikTok user said the substance drawn out was “like cheese” which ironically drew out all the nausea from my stomach. According to BuzzFeed, this process helps to release cucurbitacin, a biochemical plants use as a defense against herbivores, and results in a fresher, sweeter tasting cucumber. Ok, that’s cool and all but did we really have to call it “milking?”

At the very least you can freak out your friends buy asking if they want to watch you milk a cucumber. Take a look at the entire process below and happy milking!

‘Frog Bread’ Is The Latest Food Trend The Internet Is Hopping On

Published

This might just be the recipe your quarantine has been kneading.

Quarantine has brought out the baker in all of us. Baking aisles are being wiped out so quickly you’d think there was a free roll of toilet paper being given away with every bag of flour. Out of the baking frenzy is bound to come new trends and the latest one will have you hopping with excitement.

“Frog bread” has been popping up all over social media and don’t worry, eating it won’t leave your tongue covered in warts. The creation is as simple as it sounds: bread formed into the shape of a frog. Like any baking project however, there is room for error and sometimes the shapes bake unevenly which turns your frog into blob. But when all the elements work together perfectly, you’re left with a perfect loaf of frog bread. The real question is if you kiss your dough do you end up with a bread prince? Asking for a friend of course.

There is a detailed recipe floating around the web from 2005 and while we don’t know why it is trending 15 years later, we can all agree that now is the perfect time to try this trend.

The Dough

6 cups unbleached flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons yeast
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups lukewarm milk
1/4 – 1/2 cup water

Mix together all of the dry ingredients. Mix in the milk and enough water to make everything form a doughy ball. Turn the ball out onto a flat surface and knead for approximately 10 minutes. Return it into a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise for approximately 90 minutes until the dough has doubled in size. Then take your dough and begin shaping your frog!
