It sounds like an interesting event with a good, period feast. My only (minor) quibble is the pecans which are a New World nut. I’ve seen feasts in this kingdom (Ansteorra) folded into the site fee. There are pros and cons to doing this and we’re seeing some of these being commented upon. I’m hoping someone will write up a detailed review of this event, giving the menu, maybe the recipes and how things went, that I can include in the FEAST-REVIEWS section of the Florilegium later. Stefan PS: Taste of Calontir type sideboards are mentioned, here is a file in that section: Taste-o-Calon-art (61K) 5/16/10 Recipes from the "Taste of Calontir” tasting table at the Calontir Jubilee Celebration provided by Mistress Kateryn de Develyn. > On Feb 24, 2015, at 7:03 PM, Gwendolyn <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > > It wasn't a question of honesty from the populace. We had a sideboard day feast at Coronation with limited seats sold and no issues.

We wanted to throw a big party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Tournament of Chieftains. His Majesty suggested that we couldn't do a Venetian Carnivale without a ball. It all just came together in an attempt to try to give everyone a great time. We are hoping that, rather than most people leaving right after court to visit various eateries, people can stay later and enjoy the full event with their friends, delicious food, and fun entertainment. > > Gwendolyn -------- THLord Stefan li Rous Barony of Bryn Gwlad Kingdom of Ansteorra Mark S.
