We know that New Babbage has its share of mad scientists cooking away in their labs, but what are they cooking in their kitchens?  Get ready for a special event that promises to reveal who is hungry for power and who is just hungry!

Start digging through your recipe books, Babbagers, for that extra tasty dish. You know the one – just the thought of it makes your mouth water, but it is probably considered edible only in our part of the world. The catch is this: it must incorporate a secret ingredient, to be revealed below.

Submit your recipes to Blackberry Harvey and Junie Ginsburg inword by notecard so they can prepare your dish in their test kitchens and then confer about the results.  After all recipes have been prepared, all dishes have been tasted (by some lucky volunteers) and critiques have been written, these judges will determine WHO WILL BE OUR NEXT…uhm…FIRST IRON BAY CHEF!

Your secret ingredient is… AIR KRAKEN!

This event will be executed as part of the Second Annual Air Kraken Festival, running from August 11 through the 25th.  Submit your recipe by noon on the 24th so that winners can be announced during the festival closing event. (We cook very quickly.)

Ready?  Get crackin’!


(PRIZES:  L$1000, L$750, L$500.  The winning dishes will be added to the menus at the CocoaJava and the Gangplank.)

    Ok, given the nature of both the residents of Babbage and the city itself I’m just waiting for someone to offer up blackened kraken.

    (Oh come on.  You know that someone is going to do it.)

      I look forward to your recipe, Caesar.  ;-)

    Mrs. Sawyer, having Bookhaven house nearly to herself, what with Ms. Hienrichs and Captain Lanfier out of town, hears about this contest and dashes to the kitchen for a frenzy of experimentation…

    We’ve gotten a good response on this contest, but we’ve decided to give you some more time to whip up some trouble!  You now have until midnight on Saturday the 25th to create some air kraken madness in the kitchen and send it our way.

    Remember, please drop a notecard with your recipe to both Blackberry Harvey and Junie Ginsburg inworld, and we’ll whip up a batch of whatever-it-is in our test kitchen and feed it to our lucky volunteers.

    (Should it be looking back at us?  Just wondering…)
