Sidecar’s March Wing Man: Joey Baldino
This month was Sidecar Bar and Grille‘s inaugural “Monthly Wing Thing” featuring Jim Burke, and we just found out that next month’s (aka March’s) wingmaster extraordinaire is going to be Joey Baldino of Zeppoli.
So why should you be excited? Because chicken wings are awesome, and because Baldino really knows how to cook. He’ll be whipping up “Sicilian blood orange agrodolce wings,” which will be for sale starting Monday, March 2 and will be available throughout that entire week (or until they sell out). If you’re a die-hard wing fan (or a die-hard Zeppoli fan) though, you should definitely head over to Sidecar on Tuesday March 3 because that’s when Baldino will be hanging out at the bar to talk about wings, Italian food, or whatever else he feels like doing.
Sidecar published Baldino’s shopping list for the wings, which is both exhaustive and delicious sounding. Here’s the rundown:
Garlic, parsley, dried oregano, harissa puree, rice flour, garlic powder, onion powder, ground fennel, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, pepper, blood oranges, regular oranges, blood orange puree, honey, balsamic vinegar, pecorino papato, heavy cream and Zeppoli semolina.
A bit more complicated than some butter and a bottle of Frank’s RedHot, no?
