Dish History: Wisdom Warner’s dish comes from a small city called Danville, in the state of Virginia. His best friend, LaToya Tarpley-Hubbard would always make him this chicken. After she was murdered, he wanted to keep her memory alive by introducing her southern fried chicken to others, just with a healthier twist. Latoya’s chicken will forever be apart of his main dishes.
