I fear some gentles have missed the point of this Policy.  It does not say
that you can't USE alcohol in feast cooking... only that you can't BUY
alcohol with SCA funds.  If you need some sort of alcohol for a recipe,
simply buy it yourself or take up a collection.  It's really not that big
of a deal.
