    He's right Don't come to Buffalo again! If you named a "GOOD" place for wings then I'd go TRY THAT and compare, but WTF. You just said a blanket derogatory statement about Buffalo Wings and look I have tried wings Outside of Buffalo, they were all terrible.
    I mean at the end of the day it's Franks Redhot, Butter and Fried chicken. If you don't like THAT, then you don't LIKE Buffalo wings ergo, shut your trap about whose are good/bad. That's like if you said Neapolitan pizza sucks in Naples because all your life you been eating Tonys Noblydobly pizza in LA and you acquired a taste for THAT. It doesn't mean Naples isn't good it just means that YOU like something ELSE.
    Oh and by the way Saffron is from Persia you dumb jackass

      SABER-JOCKY 5 hours ago

      Wow, you're stupid. There are several different types of saffron grown in different parts of the world. Do you actually have any culinary education or even know how to use a basic search engine? Information is readily available. All that is required is for you to admit that you don't know everything and look for it.

    Alton is the man, I loved how he questioned old ways, everything, always learns and changes his views and opinions as new facts.,research and he tested its "must do, traditions and old laws as science does. I recently learned how to cook all from Alton, chef John and lil of bobby, all progressives. I wish he'd asked alton about his religion tho, as Alton Science's with cooking and his show but hypocritically believed hardcore backwards Baptist thinking, I think he's outta the closet now but not with his old Georgia?

  • TheMaloney
    TheMaloney 3 days ago

    This is such a cool concept for an interview. The interviewer makes it look easy but eating, dealing with the heat at the end, and getting through his questions which have clearly been well-researched is not as easy as it looks. Fair play to him. My hat is off.
