Fun Guild Events 5: Cooking Contest

January 29th, 2009

Cooking Contest/Bake-Off

This is an idea I haven’t tried yet, but am hoping to soon.

It’s a two-parter, and can be split up if you’d rather only do one part.  There is an in-game component and an out-of-game component.

The in-game part is the “Bake-Off”.  It’s pretty simple, and not really a contest, but more a group effort thing to help everyone out.  The idea is to help people work on their Cooking Achievements.  Each person involved will be required to farm a specific mat, like Rhino Meat or Small Eggs.  Then everyone will come together and mats will be distributed so everyone will have what they need to cook recipes they haven’t cooked yet (for the Northrend Gourmet or Cake achievements, for example).

The out-of-game part is to have those who are cooking-inclined to cook up a real meal/drink/snack that represents some in-game food, like Rhino Dogs, Dragonbreath Chilli, etc.  They’ll need to post a real recipe and try to relate it to the in-game ingredients.  Votes are made based on taste (for those who decide to try to make them) and creativity.

Example: I have yet to try these, but I am sure that because so many members of Unemployed are big fans of cooking, we’ll at least be able to pull off the second part with lots of interest.  I’ll let you know how it goes!

  1. I wish my guild did fun stuff like that, too much raiding for them to focus on other stuff I suppose.
