The  Vancouver Foodster Chicken Wings Challenge was another success featuring chicken wings creations from restaurants around Vancouver. Each restaurant featured their chicken wings creation from July 8-August 2, 2020. Our media judging panel determined the ultimate winners of the challenge, and this was quite the task as each judge who tasted each creation with a rigorous process based on taste, originality/uniqueness and presentation/appearance.
