Fun on Friday: How to Feel Like You’ve ‘Made It’ – Chicken Wing Edition

  by    0   4

Here’s a question for you. What do you dip gold chicken wings into?

No. I don’t mean golden-fried chicken wings. I mean gold chicken wings – as in literally coated in gold.

Yes. That’s a thing.

And the answer to the question is golden butter, of course. At least according to Jonathan “Foodgōd” Cheban, who collaborated with The Ainsworth on the dish.

One thing about these wings – they are rich.

Yes. I went there. Punny, eh?

Here’s how Food & Wine describes these delectable drumsticks.

The shiny wings and drummettes start by being soaked in a coconut butter, chipotle, and honey batter for 24 hours, before being fried and finished off with a dusting of gold flakes.”

The Ainsworth is an upscale lounge and sports bar with locations in New York City,  New Jersey, and Kansas City, with a Nashville location set to open soon.

So, how much will 24-karat chicken wings set you back? Well, you have three options to chose from.

  • 10 wings for $30
  • 20 wings for $60
  • 50 wings + one bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac for $1,000

Because, you know, nothing goes with wings like expensive champagne. And by expensive champagne, I mean beer.

That reminds me of the Fun on Friday I did back in April about the beer made with actual gold. Yes. That’s a thing too. If you missed that one, you should check it out. Anyway, it seems like gold beer would be a better pairing with chicken wings than Champagne Armand de Brignac. Or you could just go with a Natty Light. It’s really up to you.

Look, I’ve said before I don’t really get the whole eating gold thing.  I’m reading this thinking I could just order some wings from Wing Zone. They’ll bring them to my house, and I don’t have to worry about getting sauce all over my expensive suit – because I don’t think you eat gold chicken wings at The Ainsworth in your wifebeater and boxer shorts.

But the Foodgōd gives us a little psychological insight into why you might want to eat gold.

You know why gold’s important to me? Because gold makes me feel like I’ve made it. If I’m eating gold, it means I’ve put in a lot of years of hard work, because to be able to eat gold, it feels very rich, it feels very decadent, it feels ‘take the top off the Maybach,’ it feels, like, really special.”

Or it feels like you just maxed out your Visa. There’s also that feeling.

But I get it. I guess. The Foodgōd is tapping into humanity’s long-time love affair with gold. Gold has intrinsic value. You couldn’t sell chicken wings coated in aluminum. Customers would just think you forgot to remove the foil when you pulled them out of the oven. But when you serve food covered in gold, people realize it’s something special. Gold is special.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I don’t want to eat it. I don’t need “special” poop. I need to keep increasing my wealth!

Besides, I don’t really have to eat gold to feel like I “made it.” I mean, if I’ve made it, I’ll still feel that way eating Wing Zone wings on my couch watching the Stanley Cup playoffs – with the added bonus that I’m not wasting gold.

But you know, you gotta be you. So, if you want to eat gold chicken wings, go for it! But if you are more interested in preserving and growing your wealth, I recommend calling a SchiffGold precious metals specialist. They won’t send wings to your house, but they can help you invest in high-quality gold bars and coins. If you want, you can still dip them in golden butter. That would be weird – but like I said – you gotta be you!
