Times are tense and what better way to relieve tension than a good, old fashioned belly laugh after a generous serving of hot wings?

Starting this week, Ski.com will begin a weekly series featuring our favorite recipes alongside ski films that fit the culinary mood. For our first installment, we’re sharing the very first ever, original Buffalo Wing recipe that goes great with the beer you’ll be drinking whilst watching the snowboard comedy classic, Out Cold.

Today, we’ll be putting together the sports bar favorite named after the city in which the menu staple became popular. According to Parade, the first original recipe for “Buffalo Wings” was crafted in Buffalo, NY by Teressa Bellissimo, who served up a plate of deep fried chicken wings, tossed in hot sauce at her downtown watering hole, Anchor Bar in 1964. Served alongside blue cheese and celery, this classic recipe has stood the test of time and if you’ve never been satisfied with home cooked wings, that’s all about to change.
