COOKIE BAKING Updates!

COOKIE BAKING with the Food Guild!

DATE: Sunday, December 8, 2019—–
TIME: Noon-ish or 1-ish to start, 5 pm-ish or 6 pm-ish to end—–
Place: Brandie Lee’s House in Wexford 


NOTE:  due to a severe allergy, there can be NO nuts or nut products prepped or baked at the house – no peanuts, almonds or almond flour, walnuts, or anything. —–

Coconut flour, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds (pepitas), and soy products are safe. It’s fine if people bring already baked cookies containing nuts as long as they are kept separate. —–

The Food Guild will be bringing 10 pounds of flour, 8 pounds of sugar and 2 pounds of butter for everybody to use. Also there will be parchment paper, tin foil, and ziplock bags for taking stuff home.—–

I will be bringing my extensive collection of cookie cutters, my cookie extruder, food colors, cookie sheets, my stand mixer which can handle some pretty heavy gingerbread dough, and any other odds and ends I can find.—–

Kids are welcome and so are other random family and friends; there are three kitties living there, so medicate as appropriate. —–

Love baking for the holidays? Need to test recipes for the Twelfth Night Baking Contest? Want tons of homemade cookies for Santa?

Bring your recipes and your ingredients, mix ‘em up and bake ‘em in Tierrany Rose’s kitchen in Wexford, or bring your frozen cookie dough and bake with us. Want to swap cookies? Great! Bring something to trade. Want to sip hot beverages and nibble and chat? Yay! Tierrany will have coffee and teas ready to enjoy. There may be an outbreak of largess making, you never know.

Kids are welcome and so are other random family and friends; there are three kitties living there, so medicate as appropriate.

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!

Ve Have Counted!

Greetings! 

The contents of the larder have now been cleaned, marked, photographed, and counted! Check out the picture of its new home! (Doggie not included.)

Many thanks go to Elss, Alastar, Myfanwy, and Libby for their help on two Sunday afternoons.  Many a cupcake was slain during this endeavor … thank you, Elss!


If you are cooking for an event and need to use items from the larder, please contact me (steward@debatablelands.org) and arrange for a time to pick up.  My address can be found in the Dark Pages.


Next step is to make the inventory available online so you can see what is available for use.  Stay tuned for a future announcement.

In Service,
Alaric, Steward

Cancelled: September Food Guild Meeting

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.

YIS, Elss Augsburg
