How did Buffalo chicken become a topping on pizza? Do you know the answer to these questions?
Many of you reading this may be lifelong Western New Yorkers…but food writer Arthur Bovino has a message for you: “There are things in this book I think that Buffalonians don’t know about their own city.”
His words, not ours.
Strong words for the man who came here on an assignment.
“I moved up here for a month and I ate at 120 restaurants, and gained 25 pounds, and then I wrote for the next 11 months,” said Bovino in an interview at Elmo’s Restaurant in Getzville.
The assignment was to write 60,000 words on Buffalo’s food scene, but he did a lot more than that.
Buffalo food is a topic often discussed on Morning Bull, but this interview was particularly special. NYC food writer Arthur Bovino committed to writing THE encyclopedia on Buffalo and WNY food culture.
