December Wing Thing with Ed Affinito


For this month's Wing Thing collaboration, we're keeping it in the family with Kraftwork's Executive Chef, Ed Affinito. Ed has had an illustrious career working with such culinary stars as John Besh, Todd English, and Luke Palladino. He was Executive Chef at Palladino's Seasonal Italian Cooking and Chef de Cuisine at Palladino's on Passyunk, both of which received three bell reviews from The Inquirer's Craig LaBan.

Ed will be making his special Kraftwork Wings, which are a new addition to the menu there. The wings are beer brined, dipped in seasoned flour and fried. They're then tossed in a house-made harissa hot sauce that includes roasted tomatoes, roasted red peppers, roasted garlic, house-made chili paste, butter and charred lemon. The wings are served with a Rogue Smokey Blue Cheese sauce and garnished with scallions.

 

In addition to these new wings, Ed has made several seasonal updates to the menu at Kraftwork. If you haven't been there recently, swing by and check out the new offerings.
