BC Reads! Event for The Martian—Potato Bake-off!
Wednesday, Nov. 16
11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., D106
You read that right! Potato Bake-off, Martian-style. What IS a potato bake-off? It is in the vein of a pie contest. Pick a category. Make a dish, bring it in, and we will have a panel of judges to pick the winners. Everyone is welcome to come, taste the entries, and have a baked potato.
Best Tasting—anything goes here as long as it has potatoes in it
Best Mark Watney Potatoes—Potato-based dishes that only have 5 ingredients (including potatoes). Ingredients should be common household staples that a Mars-bound crew might have on hand (no exotic vanillas, saffron, etc.)
Most Surprising—Be safe here, people
