the ultimate food high
With the help of $33,000, raised via a Kickstarter campaign, John Truex founded Borough Furnace two years ago. He set up shop at the Gear Factory, a forgotten warehouse on the western outskirts of Armory. Seed money funded molds for frying skillets, braising skillets, and bottle openers and to build machines from scratch. His no-waste traditional casting method relies on recycled iron scraps—specifically car brakes—to form handmade cookware and old vegetable oil to fuel the furnace.
