I 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.
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.
I didn't know
what either of those dishes were, but period chocolate chip
Sure always happy to help. :-) and I did know what Pâte à choux was.

<snip>Those are all summer camping/outdoor events.
............ 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).
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.
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

would have no problem feeding a couple dozen fighters at Pennsic)
