Pennsic a fair number of years ago and there are two things that I did with
it that I desperately hope continue, now that I've handed it off to other
people to run. The first is that all of the food served is period in
nature. Dried or fresh fruits, nuts, fine cakes, marzipan, and the like are
all options, as well as a lot of other things. The reason for this is that
one can have chocolate chip cookies and potato chips anywhere, anytime
outside of Pennsic, there is no need to serve such things at a Pennsic
gathering. The second thing that I desperately hope continues is calling it
a gathering rather than a tea. A social gathering called a tea in Western
society is way post-period.
I maintain that when my husband comes with me to Pennsic and cooks for me,
it's the best food I eat all year. Great variety, fantastic flavor, and
it's food I don't get anywhere else (sometimes at home). Yum.
