Culinary Classic: Nachos

“Necessity is the mother of invention.”

Some of the most iconic appetizers and snacks were created out of the necessity to calm unforeseen hunger cravings when the pantry is all but depleted.

Who can forget Teressa Bellissimo who invented Buffalo (chicken) wings at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY, one night in 1964 when her teenaged son and his band of party-reveling friends showed up at the restaurant hungry.

Mrs. Bellissimo took some chicken wings that were intended for the stock pot, deep-fried them, then coated them with a mixture of hot sauce and butter. On the side, she served celery sticks and blue-cheese dressing.

The rest is history.

Savory Soulmates: Beef and Mushrooms

To quote classic Sinatra: “You can’t have one. No, you can’t have one without the other.”

As with peanut butter and jam, mashed potatoes and gravy, lo mein and oyster sauce, strawberries and whipped cream, certain foods have certain affinities for certain other foods that create indelible and unique taste memories.

From a hearty, grilled, perfectly medium-rare rib steak topped with a garlicky mushroom sauté, or Beef Wellington coated with mushroom duxelles and wrapped snugly in a blanket of puff pastry, to the earthy, slow-cooked classic of Boeuf Bourguignon—beef and mushrooms share that type of affinity.
