About Lori Alden Holuta
Lori Alden Holuta lives between the cornfields of Mid-Michigan, where she grows vegetables and herbs when she's not playing games with a cat named Chives. She's fond of activities from the past, including canning and preserving, wine making, crochet and cooking.
Her lifelong fascination with the Victorian era dovetails nicely with articles she has written for The Primgraph, a magazine that focused on historical eras in virtual worlds. She's also written music and book reviews for Steampunk Magazine and served as Editor-In-Chief for Penny Gaff Publications, a small independent publishing house which produced serial adventures in the old penny novel style.
This “cookbook” is based on the Iron Chef series, which mixed cooking, sports, and game shows in an arena-style setting, blending in play-by-play commentary and slow-motion replays. Guest chefs challenged one of the home-team ‘Iron Chefs’ in kitchen competition. A moment before starting, a ‘secret ingredient’ was revealed. The chefs had to use it in every dish they created. Challengers would frantically whip up appetizers, main courses, salads, sides, desserts, and even cocktails. The secret ingredient worked well in some dishes and horribly in others.
On the west side of New Babbage, the peaceful yet murky waters of Iron Bay provided the name and inspiration for a friendly competition amongst the city’s avid (and rabid) foodies.
The City-State of New Babbage is a community-built virtual construction that is hosted on the Second Life grid.
