6124Re: [Ayreton] Re: Feasting
- Mar 31, 2011I have to agree with Marissa....many times it's not the outdoor cooking that is the problem (I've known Twm ap Twm to cook a fabulous feast over an open fire much to my awe and amazement), but rather the availability of the site (some places don't like that) and/or just what the group/site is able to do. At Border Skirmish, the place is great for a grilling type thing, but not really all that great for even an over the open fire type of cooking event, hence the potluck. Vanished Wood had at least two at Lord's Park Pavilion in Elgin where it was all done with grills and/or electric roasters. Other places don't allow outside cooks (such as Maidens). And other places are just too expensive to keep open for longer periods of time and smaller groups can't afford it. So, I don't think it's a trend, but more a matter of site and/or group.Your mileage may vary,Acelina

<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). <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.
