East Campus hosted an Iron Chef event during CPW. Three teams of prefrosh each cooked four or five dishes within one hour and were subsequently judged by a panel of critics. The event was held in Fifth East’s kitchen last Thursday.

An operational Newton’s cradle composed of personality cores from the video game Portal 2 appeared under the walkway connecting Buildings 56 and 18 on Friday night. When the nearby button of the walkway was pressed, the sphere at the end would swing, setting the “cores” in motion.

The winning dish was chicken tenderloins wrapped in bacon, coasted in a potato chip breading, pan fried, and served on a bed of crispy Brussels sprouts. It was cooked by “Team Overcoat” and chosen as the winning dish based on creativity and depth of flavor at the East Campus Iron Chef event on Thursday evening.

Each group was also required to demonstrate that their bridge could safely hold the weight of all team members combined.
