 Jackie Cameron
With rugby season in full swing, Costas believes his Asian-inspired, sticky, chicken wings are the perfect snack with a cold beer and the rugby. “Chicken wings have always been a favourite of mine and I enjoy experimenting with Asian flavours,” he said. “I use sweet, sour, bitter and salty combinations in a variety of ways,“ he adds.
