Description: following the spirit of the TV
show it was a cook off challenge....another RA and
i had 4 or 5 rooms from our towers cook off against each
other.....we used Ichi-ban noodles for a secret
ingredient....the tenants all came down to a common
area....we explained the rules and gave them 2 packages
of the secret ingredient......they had to use what ever
food they had in their house and bring the food
back down to be judged....we gave them 1/2 hour to
cook......you wouldn't believe what college students can
do with ichi-ban....there was even a group that made a
a cool secret ingredient... something quite versatile
judges willing to eat food prepared by college students
a video camera....go around and tape them cooking and
the judging ceramony....then dub it over later....
lots of cool people who want to have some fun and good
Other Considerations: Prizes....we used things
that every one can always use more of....kitchen
stuff....oven mitts...cheese graters....aprons...dish
clothes....you get the idea......
it was an awesome event...every one had a good time

ANOTHER SUBMISSION OF A SIMILAR PROGRAM:
Battle of the Iron Chefs
Description: Iron Chef is a Japanese cooking
program that is played on the food network.
Basically, a challenger challenges an iron chef (master)
in a specific area of cuisine. A mystery
ingredient is unveiled, and every dish must have this
item in it.
Instructions_Things_Needed: A mystery ingredient
of your choosing (keep in mind it will be in every dish
& must be tasted!)
A taped episode of Iron Chef (Fridays at 9 p.m. I think
on the food network).
Have the introduction of the show played on the T.V.,
and play an episode throughout the social.
Have singles or teams, then unveil your secret
ingredient. Remind everyone that all dishes must
have the ingredient in it. Give them about 20
minutes to create their masterpeices, then judge them on
originality, taste, and anything else you wish.
Winners can receive a prize and a certificate declaring
them the Iron Chefs of the dorm.
Other Considerations: Since this is a social,
it's probably best that you stick to fairly simple
secret ingredients, and don't involve actual cooking.
