In an attempt to demystify the fictional and relational quality of participatory ephemeral work, we set up an online community cooking workshop to stage a public experimental cook show.

Through learning together and teaching each other from an onsite broadcasting station and a zoom meeting room with home cooks, we embark to negotiate how technology mediates our communication, community formation, and knowledge production. In the Amateur Cooking Show we navigate the spectacle of an online event and how the fluid roles of audience, host, participants, instructors complicate information digestion in such a heavily mediated environment.
