Who said you shouldn’t play with your food?
GeekPlate is thrilled to be hosting an incredible event at this year’s PAX Australia gaming convention.
On the opening night of the convention in the Main Theatre (2400 seats), GeekPlate’s Tristan Lutze will host four well known Australian gaming identities as they cook, live on stage, their favourite gamin snacks.
Expect a little mischief, a lot of hilarity and some delicious results.

Stephanie ‘Hex’ Bendixsen – one of the hosts of ABC2’s ‘Good Game‘ and ABC3’s ‘Good Game: Spawn Point’, Hex is one of Australia’s most popular TV presenters and a highly respected game reviewer. Her biggest passion outside of games is food, making her the perfect addition to the 1st Annual PAXAUS Food Fight. Twitter: @hexsteph
Scott Edgar – For over 15 years, Tripod have been Australia’s best and most popular musical comedy trio. While many songs in their storied history have included subtle (and less subtle) gaming references, their 2015 show ‘This Gaming Life’ elevated them to geek nirvana. Written in collaboration with ‘Journey’ composer Austin Wintory, the show was performed together with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Twitter: @tripodactual
Eve Beauregard – a self described ‘professional nerd’, Eve is one of the world’s most recognisable and popular cosplayers. Her incredibly keen eye for detail, warm wit, dedication to everything geeky and genuine love for her loyal online community continues to make her one of the greatest things on the internet since that cat played the keyboard.

Mark Serrels – Porridge. I mean, he’s also the Editor of Kotaku Australia, the first and last port of call for gaming news, reviews and interesting game-related writings but, yeah, porridge. Twitter: @serrels
