SUNDAY! FOOD GUILD MEETING!!

This Sunday, November 17th

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!

PIE CONTEST! At the Harvest Revel Barony Meeting 11/3

Pie Pie Pie! Oh boy, what flavor?

Our Barony Annual PIE Contest is on for the Harvest Revel on Sunday 11/3! Who can enter? EVERYONE! And if you’ve never encountered the Debatable Lands Harvest Revel Meeting PIE contest before – just about anything counts as pie, if you can name it pie…. Pumpkin roll? Spatially challenged pie. Cookies? Crustless mini-pies. Pork roast? Deconstructed meat pie. A bowl of apples? Procrastinated Pie. BRING IT ALL! Sweet, savory, and everything in between!

The categories this this for the pie contest are (drumroll…): Signature Pie, Showstopper Pie, and Period Pie 

How does it work? You make a pie, you decide the category (don’t worry, it’s super informal and just-for-fun), we all feast like Confectionary Royalty! Make sure to bring enough or cut it small, since the judges are YOU! Yup, it’s populace vote (tokens in a cup)! Each meeting attendee gets 3 tokens – one vote per category. Gluten free pies always go over well if you are so inclined. The prize is GLORY and your recipe in the ALTHING (and maybe some trinket)!!

Please be mindful of common allergens, and make a note on the provided card if you use them. Folks in the barony are allergic/sensitive to gluten/wheat, nuts of various types, onions and garlic, among other things. Thanks!

Contest will run from noon to around 3pm.
