West Coast Culinary Symposium 2012
- Forwarded from the organizer of the West Coast Culinary Symposium 2012:
Hi Brother and Sister Culinary Historians!
We have opened pre-registration (mail in only at this time, but ACCEPS will come online soon). Duchess Juana and I want to get the word out to as many Known World serious foodies as we can as we need to limit tickets sales to 150 due to the lodging/food inclusive nature of the event. So PLEASE, if you know of anyone who might be interested can you pass along the information, guide them to the web page for the event and especially the preregistration page: http://www.compassstarcatering.com/preregistration.html

I'm working on putting the class schedule together. If you want to teach something, please let me know. If you would like to suggest a class to take, please let me know and I'll try to find someone to teach it.
It is less than four months away and will be tons of fun.

Some people in the historical group I participate in (The Society for Creative Anachronism aka SCA) will be hosting a Culinary Symposium next year. It will be the weekend of February 11 and 12 at Camp Bothin in Marin County just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco.
