Pushpir sandwiches hit restaurants!

13 January, 2021: Remember when Pushpir came into the kitchen at CloverHSQ and schooled Ayr on Northern Indian cooking?

Ribs

4 October, 2008: I spent 3 hours today with John at the MIT hobby shop, and a few hours before that collecting pieces and parts. We’re using marine plywood, it’s just like regular plywood except the glue is waterproof and will not warp, and it’s more expensive.
