Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings
What would happen if you combine parmesan cheese, garlic, and chicken wings? “The world will have another epic recipe.” That’s an excellent answer kiddo! What a lovely world to live in. *winks* Parmesan cheese, garlic, and chicken wings baked into one? *silence* Its epicness is beyond words, my dear friends. And do you know what’s even more awesome about this dish? Blue cheese stars in its dressing! “What’s blue cheese?” Ok, kiddo. I am asking the same question too. I’m afraid I haven't seen one ever since. However, before we go mad with this delicious food, we will find out about this special ingredient.
Blue cheese, according to Wikipedia, is a “general classification of cow's milk, sheep's milk, or goat's milk cheeses that have had cultures of the mold Penicillium added so that the final product is spotted or veined throughout with blue, blue-grey, blue-green, or blue-brown mold and carries a distinct smell, either from that or various specially cultivated bacteria.” Just ignore the distinct smell, amigo. *winks* The smell of blue cheese is because of the mold and the types of bacteria that are encouraged to grow on it: for example, the bacterium Brevibacterium linens is responsible for the smell of many blue cheeses.
This type of cheese is characteristically aged in a temperature-controlled environment such as a cave. Oh yeah, blue cheese goes to the caving adventure. Lucky cheese. *sighs* Alright. Just like other cheeses, blue cheese can be eaten by itself or can be spread, crumbled or melted over other foods. They have a sharp and salty flavor. Blue cheese was said to have been invented accidentally “when cheeses are stored in naturally temperature and moisture controlled caves, which happens to be favorable environments for many varieties of harmless mold.”
The Italian blue cheese, Gorgonzola, is known to be one of the oldest blue cheeses. It is created around 879 AD, “though it is said that it did not actually contain blue veins until around the 11th century.”
