Cooking at MENU FOR MARS SUPPER CLUB's Test Kitchen

  • The Boiler Gallery 191 N 14th St Brooklyn, NY, 11249 United States (map)

On June 13, from 3pm-7pm or so, the lovely Thalia Zedek and I will be preparing space station friendly food and drink at The Boiler Gallery in Brooklyn, NY as a part of MENU FOR MARS SUPPER CLUB's test kitchen series of events.

We're very excited to be working for the first time with two ingredients we've never experimented with before: cricket flour and miracle fruit, as well as to be invited to contribute this important research project which could help make the Mars space station a better place.

We'd love for you to join us for dinner or a drink, but if June 13 doesn't work for you, please check out some of the other events happening as a part of the show, celebrating the creative research of the Menu for Mars Supper Club.

The Boiler: May 29th - June 21st, 2015

After a year of research, the Menu for Mars Supper Club is implementing its findings in an analog Mars kitchen in Brooklyn. Visitors are invited to prototype meals using dried and thermostabilized ingredients, as well as ingredients from the greenhouse. Dishes will be documented, sampled, and and vacuum-packed. In July 2015, the prototype dishes and a summary of findings will be sent to NASA to augment their preparations for colonizing Mars.
