And I'd like to mention the beneficent Lady Prudence the Curious (newly of
Emerald keep), who snuck into the scullery after everyone else had crashed,
and finished washing the pots and pans.

As lead cook, I would like to second and third all the people mentioned
below, but I would add that Richard did more than a little of everything. He
shopped ahead of time, he did a large portion of the set up, he chopped
vegetables, he cut chicken, he cooked vegetables, he manned the grill for
the chicken, and he worked both Saturday night and Sunday for the cleanup.


I would also like to give a special thanks to my lady, Pyro, who did most of
what Richard and I did and seemed tireless.


Vivat to you all! I welcome you to any future feast I am crazy enough to
cook for.

No feast is done by one person, and this feast is no exception. Without the
support of these wonderful gentles I am listing below feast would not have
been the success it was.


Caelin, a thank you is not enough. Without your support and guidance this
feast simply would not have happened. You were the master and I was the
student during this feast. Thank you!


Pyro, thank you for all the cleaning, loading, unloading, chopping of onions
and cooking. You contribution made it easier for everyone. Thank you!


Aislyn, the real  success regarding the chocolate cake was the home made
frosting made on sight by you. Thank you for working so hard all day on the
chocolate cake icing and helping with all the other cooking. Your
contribution, and constantly putting water and diet coke in my hands made
the day easier for us all. Thank you!


Fearghu! s, what can I say but you are a master vegetable  chopper.  Thank


Inez, who literally cleaned  pots and pans all day and stuffed all those
chicken breasts. Even though you were in pain you still made a great
contribution to the feast. Thank you!


Barbara, sorry I don't know how to spell you sca name. Thank you for
constantly cleaning the dirty utensils, pots and pans and then chopping
mushrooms and preparing the salad. I am astonished by your tireless energy.
Thank you!


Siobhann, thank you for jumping in and helping in the kitchen and your
masterful preparation of the salad course. I salute your ability to make
salad without direction. Thank you!


Arias, who after fighting all day helped in the kitchen by cutting up the
beef and helped in the preparation of the courses. Thank you for jumping in
even after you were tired and your knee was hurt! ing you. Thank you!


Theresa, who changed clothes not only to help cook, but also watched several
pots, helped in the preparation of the courses, and the actual cooking.
Without your participation I would still be watching a pot of rice. Thank


Elizabeth, for showing Caelin and myself the mysterious art of baking
brownies and cakes. Without your knowledge and mentoring the 36 layers of
the chocolate cake would not have been completed so easily. Thank you!


Daniel, thank you for making all those grocery runs for those things we
needed during the day.


Armand and Ameline, thank you  for serving the high table and  the general
populace. Thank you!


Genvieve 2.0, thank you  for helping with the loading of the feast stuff on
Sunday morning.


I would also like to thank Dolphin, Chandra and Gw! enneth for coming in and
volunteering from outside of your group. Your contribution made it easier on
all of us and Chandra's skills as head server were invaluable.


Thank you to all those feast servers who sacrificed their time to serve this
feast. It is one thing to cook a feast and it quite another to deliver it to
the populace. Without your efforts people would not have gotten their food
in a timely fashion.


For all those I have forgotten, a very special thank you as you made the
feast move forward smoothly. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.


H.E. Master Richard Fairbourne

Coronation Feast Steward.
