DISH '11: Introduction 

Finger-licking good

Confession: I don't eat chicken wings. They always seemed like too much effort for fairly little reward. But that didn't stop me from wanting to lick the cover of this edition of Dish. Photographer Matt DeTurck and Production Manager Max Seifert outdid themselves, making those saucy, greasy bits of meat and bone look like the most delectable creations in the world.

            If you want to get more intimately acquainted with some of Rochester's more interesting chicken wings, check out Emily Faith's round-up on page XX. We knew when we started working on this article that it would prove to be somewhat controversial -- we could not include every wing in Rochester. If we missed your favorite, please let us know by commenting on the article at

            Nothing goes better with wings than beer, and James Leach has put together a fascinating look at some of the newest players on the local craft-beer scene. Turn to page XX and find out about several ambitious brew lovers who decided to take their passion for beer and turn into buzz-worthy businesses.

            But man cannot live on beer and wings alone. To round out this issue of Dish Heather Charlton appeals to our healthier side with a piece on edible accountability. You know, eating locally sourced ingredients, being picky about what you put into your body, etc. The good news is if you have some of those locally brewed beers, and you can find some organic chicken wings, you'll still be eating conscientiously! Kind of.
