Agincourt 2017 – From the Lunch Cook

Good afternoon from this year’s lunch cook. Here is the English menu. I am very excited to be working on this and can’t wait to get the details on the what I hear is going to be a rockin French feast.

I have started all of the documentation for these recipes in order for them to tested and tried. I have several people that have asked or I have asked to take on one of the items so that everyone can get familiar the feast preparation process. If you are interested in maybe taking on a recipe reach out and let me know.

I have several people that are making parts of the items such as pickles and smoked olives – growing fava beans – making a cheese – churning butter. If you have something you are working on or would like to try on a smaller scale – let me know.

We will need set up – refilling – and clean up helping hands as well. If you know of a youth that would like to get involved – let me know. There are many ways to let them get involved in the kitchen.

If you have questions or need to reach me you can comment here – send me a PM through Facebook (comment that you did so that I know to check there) or email me at ladyzianna at gmail dot com.

Seeking Archers to Represent the Debatable Lands at the Scarlet Guard Inn!

Hello Debatable Lands!

As many of our archers know the Scarlet Guard Inn is scheduled for June 9-11 and will feature the best archery experience in Aethelmearc. Prominently featured will be the Scarlet Guard Challenge where one archer from each group in the kingdom is invited to vie against all other group’s representatives in this kingdom wide challenge. How is that 1 representative chosen, you might ask?

Lord Ronan, who was the representative for the Barony at last year’s Scarlet Guard Inn, will host a challenge tournament on Sunday June 4 at Archery Practice, and invite the winner to compete in this intra-kingdom competition. So wax your strings and straighten your arrows, this will be fun and challenging!

Fencing Practice

There will be fencing practice this Sunday at Washington Blvd.

Next week there will be no practice as War Practice is that weekend.

The week after, Memorial Day weekend, we will return to Washington Blvd for practice.


First Friday – TONIGHT!

This Friday, 5 May 2017 will be First Friday at Keiran and Odriana’s home in Hamption Township. There won’t be fighting as Keiran needs to work that evening, however, Odriana will be hosting.

What is First Friday? I’m glad that you asked. It’s an opportunity to socialize, for the most part. We have a loose framework of hanging out and enjoying/talking about Medieval food. You don’t like to cook, but you like food? Come and eat.

So, bring a medieval dish to share, print out or write up your recipe and tell us a little bit about what you find interesting about the dish, or what you enjoy about the dish. Tell us a little bit about your experience making it and we’ll eat and hang out.

If you’re unfamiliar with medieval cooking and need some direction, here are a couple of useful links for beginner recipes that you can try:

Godecookery – “A Boke of Good Cookery”

​Medievalcookery – “Medieval Recipes”

As it is looking like the weather is going to be rainy, no fire circle will be happening tonight.

If you have any questions, please contact Odriana at jenn.strobel(at)gmail(dot)com.
