It turns out that $1.5 million lawsuit musician/mogul Jay-Z filed against his former chef might be over a chicken wing spice mix. The attorney for Mike Shand, former chef at Jay-Z's New York club 40/40, tells Page Six: "The spice-mix recipe that Mike developed is his own recipe. 40/40 terminated him, then had the audacity to sue him for his recipes." Shand has apparently handed over every part of the chicken wing recipe apart from the spice mix. $1.5 million buys a hell of a lot of spices.
