Beakerhead Call for Intrepid Calgary Restaurants

The Challenge: Delicious! 

Beakerhead is seeking proposals of scientifically concocted three-course meals for Centrifuge, a bio-fuelled ferris wheel that will be turned into a 32-seat outdoor dining room, over three days during Beakerhead, September 11 – 13th, 2014.

This mid-air dining experience is a world first! Installed in a highly visible location during Beakerhead 2014, diners will enjoy dinner on this 16-bucket, lit-up ferris wheel while enjoying their molecular gastronomy meal.

Engineering an Experience
Beakerhead is looking for a menu fuelled by imagination and experimentation at the intersection of science, technology and art. The goal is an outstanding experience enriched by an understanding of the science and engineering involved. Service should be taken into account, since the experience is entwined with the gentle circling of a ferris wheel overlooking the city. Service by stiltwalkers would not be out of the question!

Taste is not the only sense that can be stimulated. You’re encouraged to explore opportunities to delight diners with engineered smell, sight and touch.
