Mission #8: Kitchen Battle

Note: The 2010 scavenger hunt is over (a concluding post will come soon) and we got first place out of 121 teams! This is a series explaining the background and thinking of our missions of the SF Street Food Scavenger Hunt 2010!

Mission: Imagine your own kitchen battle reality TV show, name it and then create an advertisement for it – something that would look fierce and intriguing inside of a gourmet magazine. Like Braveheart meets Top Chef or Gladiator combined with Martin Yan’s China. Props, war paint, costumes and photoshop highly encouraged!

The weekend had been rapidly ending and with little time, we needed to come up with an idea. Perhaps this one was the least thought out, because my creativity was nearly at zero.

But we looked at the equipment that my roommate had on display. KitchenAid mixer. Blender! My sodastream! Surely something amazing!?

So we decided that it would be some version of appliances vs. appliances.

We took multiple pictures, looking to have it layered.



Yes, it was totally organic as the idea formulated itself on the spot. It was the idea that there would be two teams. One team that hated hated hated appliances. One where the appliances loved and the feeling was mutual.

Was it executed well? Not quite sure! But my creativity was NIL.

But our lovely Cynthia made the final product!
