Beemah's Burning Man Bakery makes terrific surprise food deliveries all over Black Rock City, NV.
Beemah's Burning Man Bakery is a Culinary Art project for Burning Man 2012. We will be setting up a kitchen as a part of camp WhoofARTed in Black Rock City and delivering fantastic treats to unwitting Burning Man Participants.
We will have a large plexiglass poster of the Black Rock City map in camp, and each day, we will throw a number of darts at the map, and deliver some tasty treats to the closest camp to the dart's location. With our trusty trike and Bicycle trailer, we'll have delivery couriers biking all over the city to deliver our little boxes of joy.
Beemah's Bakery will produce a large number of treats, from cookies to buttermilk cinnamon biscuits to pizza and Curry bakes. Depending on the time of day, our treats are planned to blow the mind of unsuspecting participants.
Your donations will help to fund ingredients for the deliveries, an additional bicycle trailer for the couriers, transportation of the kitchen to the playa, propane for cooking/baking, and boxes for delivery. Any funds above the requested amount will increase the frequency of deliveries and availability of additional foods.
In the default world, Beemah is naturally attracted to kitchens. He's been the kitchen b**** in many restaurants across the country. He's been a sous chef, and a pastry chef, and a professional knife-and-rolling-pin-for-hire. He manages multiple restaurants at a ski resort in the winter. He bartends for major festivals. He takes on the daily challenge of feeding his culinary-handicapped partner, Bing Bing, which is no small feat as she is a picky eater. A lot of love will be put into this project and, with your help, will be shared specifically with you.
The foods will be delivered in thin paperboard boxes, completely burnable and recyclable. We are putting messaging on the boxes asking folks to either pack them out or return them to our camp, where we will gladly pack them out.
Now, before even handing over a box of goods, we are first going to ask the residents of the recieving camp if they want the box in the first place, or if we can just leave the food in their own containers. The first plan will always be to keep from MOOP-ing anyone with additional trash, if they don't want it.
