In this cooking competition, participants are asked to prepare a dish of pasties to be presented at lunch. Please try your best to keep it period, though documentation is not neccessary. We recomend making at least 2 dozen small to medium pasties. Just remember, the more you make, the greater the numbers who get to try yours, which means more chances for votes!
Electricity will be available on site on Saturday for purposes of reheating. Please come prepared with your own reheating vessel (roaster, hot plate, ect). Lunch if planned for 12:30 on Saturday.

The Defender will be chosen by popular vote and will be presented with the rest of the day’s defenders at court  
Please contact Lady Leaina if you would like to participate. We need more competitors!
