on the availability of the recipes at dayboards/feasts
- Sorry to have not been able to go to the meeting, but I like the
discussion that's happening with the "how to be all things to all
I like the idea of having the recipes available at the event (not
necessarily before - but I'm not a planning kind of girl anyway) so
that people can look through and see what is in each dish. Example:
someone I know hates nutmeg. If there's a lot of nutmeg in a dish it
will go to waste, because he won't eat it. So having the recipes
available lets someone look at it and decide befoer they get a heaping
Also I'm reminded that at Jahan's event this past spring I made a big
carrot leek soup - I memorized the ingredients, but someone actually
asked me what kind of veggie boullion I used!!! When I said "better
than boullion" veggie stock stuff, she was delighted - apparently
she's allergic to something in other, more processed, boullion! Then
about 5 people asked me for the recipe....It was at that point that I
thought - wow - I probably should have this all written down someplace
where people can see it!
We could just have cards in front of the food, or have the recipes in
a binder or something - or make a chalkboard that we can use over and
over. I agree with Bryn that it's sensible for dietary reasons, and
that it's also good as documentation.
I love the idea.
