Feast & Lunch

Feasting and fun go hand-in-hand here in the Society!

Lunch
Draw nigh, and listen to a tale of a wonderful lunch while you are at Atlanta's Crown Tourney, this November 7th.

For the totally acceptable price of $5.00, minus the distraction of having to pack food down to the site, the newly minted Canton of Moorhaven is providing a marvelous bagged lunch. Included is a hand crafted ham or turkey, with cheddar cheese, sandwich; lettuce, tomato, and onion available. Included in your bag will be, a bag of chips, a pickle spear, apple with a cool bottle of water.

We are accepting pre registrations. Please contact Paul Morse (Lorenson) either at Paul_lorenson@yahoo.com, or PM him on FaceBook. We would like to have as close to accurate count, if possible, before we are all packed up to go.

Ever wonder how the Norman Conquerors fed their armies? What the Vikings cooked when on their raids? Who invented the meat pie ... and why? Food history presents a fascinating buffet of popular lore and contradictory facts. Most foods were not invented; they evolved. Here in the SCA we make food history fun and, of course, tasty!

For most SCA cooking, a good rule of thumb is that ingredients that were readily available in Western Europe prior to the 17th century are fair game. Coffee and tea came into play toward the latter part of the period we cover, so don't worry about going without your java, as even we medievalists can't help waking up to the smell of coffee. However, we do explore many different cultures outside of Europe, so don't be surprised to see a feast from India, Africa, even the Far East!

Many events have a feast in the evening. This is a grand meal - in fact, often several meals served one after another - with multiple courses. The epitome of a modern SCA feast is a collection of heavily researched medieval dishes, prepared by a large volunteer cooking staff, served in several courses, to a multitude of diners. At your first feast, we encourage you to try a little bit of everything! You won't be familiar with all the foods there, but you'll be surprised what you find to be a new favorite! Be forewarned, because many feasts have multiple courses, pace yourself! You never want to get to the end of a feast, see something amazing you want to eat, and have no more room for it!
