6117RE: [Ayreton] Re: Feasting
- Mar 31, 2011I agree with Margrett in that it is unfortunate that in recent years, events which have previously featured feasts, like TGS 12th Night, border Skirmish and MKAoD have suddenly switched to potluck, or nothing at all.There are some very good reasons for these changes, but there are also some unfortunate side effects - like making after-feast dancing and bardic less likely, as, if there is no feast, then when is after feast?Plus, once a person - or group of people - leave the site for dinner, they are more likely to not return.*sigh*I didn't know what either of those dishes were, but period chocolate chip cookies?Too funny!Tabitha-----Original Message-----

In fact I might be teaching a class at Pennsic on late period Pâte à choux and Pâte à Panterelli most likely this year----- by the way that would period eclairs :-)

That's because most of those sites just don't have suitable cooking facilities. (And have you ever tried cooking outside? Not easy, especially on a large scale). <end snip>
Actually on this one I would personally have to disagree with you. I know Foxhunt had an amazing Feast last year, and correct me if I am wrong, but it was all cooked outside.
Also, those who camp with Ayreton at Pennsic get fed pretty well- all of the meals are even document able (but shhhhh don't tell them that) It is not harder to cook outside, it just takes a different way of thinking and cooking.
