As part of the ‘What is a Recipe?’ Virtual Conversation, we’re pleased to introduce a story-telling game, called Cooking with Anger. And you can play it in the comments below!
We’ll keep bumping the post up so you can play from now until the end of the Virtual Conversation.
This is a creative game modelled on TV cooking competitions. Cooking with Anger is a netprov where storyteller chefs improvise a tale and a recipe from a given basket of ingredients. Many have written about cooking with love; now it’s time for all the other emotions.
How to Play
- Get a basket from the Protag-o-Matic ingredients machine.
- Copy and paste your basket at the top of your tale.
- Create a small dish of a stirring story — 300 words or less — using ALL the ingredients from your basket. Use people places and things as narrative; use food items for a recipe folded into the fiction. Season the tale with the emotional spice packet.
- Post your delectable concoction in the Comments section below.
