With finger food I would suggest getting the smaller drumsticks. What other items will you have available at the buffet?   mjb.
Shucks. I was hoping to dig up a copy of a cartoon I saw many years ago. It show a very unhappy Col. Sanders getting dragged off by the police, and an employee saying "I guess they figured out what some of those secret herbs are." Might have been in a Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers book.   mjb.
It will taste better if oil is used, but it isn't strictly necessary. And the chicken skin will be crisper.   mjb.
A mandolin is one of those items I would like to try out someday. But being currently unemployed, buying new toys is not a high priority. And I know I would be unhappy with a cheaply made one.

Watercress - wow. It has been a long time, but I remember going up City Creek Canyon and picking fresh watercress along the banks. I should head up there and see if there is still any around.   mjb.
Not too many pictures of this one. Tonight I made probably the smallest batch of chicken habenaro stew I've done. But all I had were 2 small red caribbean habs. Total harvested from the plant for the year: 5     Pretty simple stew. Get the pasilla over the flame to start charring the skin. Cut the chicken into pieces, brown. I used a 50/50 mix of butter and olive oil as the fat of choice for this dish. Clean and quarter the 'shrooms. Pull the chicken out of the pot,...
Personally I would sweat the onions with about 3 - 4 cloves garlic, but that's just me.   You may want to bbe careful about using wine. The orange juice will be quite acidic, and a dry, acidic wine might just be too much.   mjb.
