    MY HUSBAND AND I VISTED THE SILVER WINGS FINE RESTAURANT EARLY MARCH, 1979. WE HAD THE BEST CHESS PIE EVER! HOW CAN I OBTAIN THE RECIPE OR COOK BOOK WITH THE RECIPE IN IT? IN OUR OPINION IT WAS ONE OF THE NICEST PLACES WE HAVE VISTED. THE DAY WE WALKED IN THERE WERE SEVERAL AWARDS POSTED NEAR THE DOOR. UNFORTUNATELY I HAD COME IN WITH A FEVER THAT DAY AND BEING THERE MADE ME FEEL GREAT!
    THANKS
    EEE
