Protectorate 40 Feast


I was selected to do the Feast for the Barony of Namron’s 40th Protectorate event. This feast was a completely period feast that I redacted from Two 15th Century Cookbooks and A Forme of Cury. I often attend feasts where someone is unable to eat feast because there are only one or two types of meat and not enough supplemental vegetables for those who cannot each meat. So I wanted to make the feast accessible to all and thus it was crafted to provide enough food for both meat eaters and vegetarians as well as providing alternative dishes for those who are Gluten Free.  The feast was successful with the entire 5 Course feast going out in 1 hour and 15 minutes (one course every 15 minutes) and everyone was well fed. If I was going to do a 5 course prior feast, I of course wanted to do a subtlety.  The subtlety went out with the last course and was a hardened crust designed to look like a castle that was filled with the final dessert, a potage of roysons, and decorate with a storm for Namron.  Full recipes are and redactions are available on my cooking page
