  • About

This is a dish I designed years before China Moon opened, when we had a lease on a very spiffy restaurant site adjacent to the San Francisco Opera House that was to have a wine bar and a grill. In my dreams, I still serve these chicken wings to throngs of glamorous opera-goers, who glitter with jewels and toast Pavarotti with Champagne.

This is a simple dish to do, for four if not a hundred. The chicken wings are good hot or cold, cooked on the grill or in the broiler. Marinate them
