1 PM at Baron Brandubh and Baroness Hilda’s house (address in the Dark Pages or text or PM me)
An Exploration of Meatballs and Sauces
I had a request to show how to make meatballs, so I will bring beef, spices, utensils, and doodads to do so, and will also bring a mundane recipe and a medieval recipe if I can find one.
If you like food, come and join us! Eating is period, so we are doing a medieval thing. Bring ingredients, favorite or new recipes, any other stuff if you want to, and we will see what we can make of all the stuff.
We did this Mystery Cooking day once before and it was VERY yummy!
Pssst. You. Yes, you. I see you there, thinking you’ll sit at home on Sunday. Instead, come to this perfect small fun gathering so you can get to know a few of the folks in our fine Barony.
See you Sunday! Elss Augsburg email@example.com

September Food Guild Meeting was to have been on Saturday, Sept 21, 1 pm – 3 pm and we were going to visit Restaurant Depot, a members-only chain selling wholesale food, beverages, equipment & supplies for restaurants & bars.
Alas, seems everyone is going to Coronation or is otherwise engaged. As soon as details for the October meeting are finalized, I will post here, there, and everywhere.
Can’t help with reception prep? Want to try a new recipe? Thinking of bringing food for the reception? YAY!
Bring some cut vegetables or fruit. Bake some cookies (we loves our cookie tables!) Bring something that’s gluten-free for our Baron. Make a surprise!
The barony is paying for and providing the ample and delicious food, the brewers’ guild will have their wares available. But I know how we like to just add a little thing here or make a bit for there. Feel free to do something with food! If you are, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
July is BOOMING with great opportunities for A&S fun. Here’s a round-up of some of the great plans that have been advertised:
Brewers Guild: July Brewers Guild meeting will take place tomorrow, July 10, at Alaric and Elsbeth’s house in the South Hills, starting at 7. We will be making sekanjabin for Pennsic using ingredients from their garden! RSVP appreciated
Woodworking Guild: Join us on Sunday, July 14th for the last Woodworking Guild Shop Day before Pennsic, in Ishiyama’s shop in Point Breeze, from 10am to 2pm.
Archers: This Thursday, July 11th, we will be having baronial archery practice AND an arrow making class at Lord Kumas’ house in Allison Park. Bring any arrow making supplies and a chair with you. Time: 6:30pm
Fiber Guild: This month the BMDL Fiber Guild is going on a field trip! On Friday July 12 at 7 pm we’re going to meet at the the Frick museum in Pittsburgh (not the NYC one) to look at and geek about their four early sixteenth century French and Flemish tapestries, and then look at some medieval paintings and artifacts in their collection. RSVP appreciated.
What else is going on? Any last minute pre-Pennsic workshops or fun activities? Send me a note and I’d be happy to distribute the info far and wide!
