Denver is nicknamed Queen City of the Plains for its importance in the agricultural industry of the plains region along the foothills of the Colorado Front Range. Buffalo, New York, is also nicknamed Queen City as the second-largest city in the state after NYC. We’ve been traveling all over the globe with our Sticky Fingers Cooking recipes the past few weeks, and we thought it was time to bring it closer to home this week. So, we’re going to travel to Buffalo, USA in our kitchens.
There are several reasons natives to Buffalo are proud - they get more annual snowfall than most of the rest of the U.S. due to the lakefront effect. And, of course, the city is where one of America’s favorite sauces and Superbowl foods are: Buffalo Chicken Wings!
Our vegetable Buffalo Bites are a delicious way to introduce kids to cauliflower. Cauliflower looks a little like a brain, and it’s actually got vitamins that are specifically good for brain health, too! In fact, one cup of cauliflower has more Vitamin C than an orange. And what kid (or adult) doesn’t love Ranch for dipping?! We paired the recipes with a popular throwback drink (Orange Julius, anyone?) as a way to cool down after tasting the slightly spicy Buffalo Bites.
Maybe your kids haven’t really experienced the sensation of spicy foods yet - these aren’t overly spicy but kid-friendly with just a bit of background heat and a great way to explore the feeling of a bit of heat on the tongue. They’re also sweet and a little sour. They are 100% delicious.
