We celebrated the 100th anniversary of the invention of marshmallow fluff at the 12th annual “What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Invention” Festival. Archibald Query concocted the beloved gooey spread right in Somerville’s Union Square. This milestone is celebrated each year with musical performances, a cooking contest, fun for every age and Fluff treats of every sort.
Senior political reporter Anthony Brooks served as a judge during the fluff cooking contest, which challenges culinary innovators to produce delicious Fluff filled recipes. Contestants vied for the titles of Best Future Chef, Most Retro Recipe, Most Inventive Recipe, and Grand Prize: Centennial Winner. Registration for the cooking contest is now open.
