Royal Food and Feasting

Lady Zianna writes that she is offering weekly get-togethers at her home to participate in an online course on the history of royal food and feasting that is being offered by the University of Reading.

Good Gentles-

This course was presented in the Aethelmearc Cooks Guild Facebook page. It looks to be very interesting and informative. I have since registered for the class and the pre class discussion has been inviting from people around the world.

If there is an interest – I would be willing to host a weekly gathering – or maybe a recipe exchange – to go over the weekly material and discuss the topics. I have a large screen tv that we can watch it on as well as a pretty large kitchen if we wanted to try a recipe or task from the class.

I can be reached at ladyzianna (at) gmail (dot) com.
