yet another idea -- a competition to make a hacky thing that performs some cooking task, like "cook one egg" or "decorate a cupcake".

Well, ok. I think we have two divergent things:

1) A fully kitted Iron Chef competition with celeb judges.
2) A small event where creativity in the face of privation rules

1 is awesome - I would love to participate (and would need to practice).

2 I think speaks to the heart of the hacker: food, but food done with a
make-do creativity.

I do recall someone recently saying that they wouldn't even consider
drinking the water that comes out of the sink....

I think the idea is great, but the shop may not be the place to hold it.

Once the slop sink was mentioned, this was my first thought. Unless
we sort of go for a 'Junkyard Wars' sort of idea, I think it'd be a
hard sell for anyone to want to cook in there competitively. Also
what about the general public showing up and wanting to eat anything
cooked in there? A hard sell, I think.

cooking in
the shop... is that going to skeeve out an actual set of chefs?
