Over twenty collectives, combines, artists, innovators, and adventures joined in a battle of epic proportions this weekend in the middle of Jamaica Bay. Flux Factory assembled a team of current and former residents, administrators, board members, and extended community members in an effort to build a seaworthy boat vessel to compete in the Second Annual Battle for Mau Mau Island, organized by Swimming Cities.
IRON CHEF FLUX: Sunday December 7th, doors at 8pm.
Competition begins at 8:30pm sharp!
Location: Flux Factory, 39-31 29th Street, Long Island City, New York 11101
Join us for the most anticipated and contested battle of the culinary arts among Flux Factory eaters and, dare we say it, eaters of the world. Our Flux Iron Chefs will have 1 hour to prepare outrageous edible masterpieces that best articulate the flavor of the secret ingredient, unveiled at the beginning of the battle.
Midway through the competition our Culinary Scientist will introduce a surprise additional secret ingredient from our local bodega, which all chefs must then incorporate into their dishes. Judges will be chosen from a random lottery from our studio audience: their taste buds alone will decide WHOSE CUISINE REIGNS SUPREME!!!
You won’t want to miss this evening of suspense, salivation, seduction, and sass. See you at the Kitchen Stadium. If you can’t be there, tune into our livestream video of the action (URL to be announced).
Emcee: Executive Director Nat Roe
