Join us in a symposium dedicated to period cooking, period cooking techniques, period cooking texts, feast stewarding, and other medieval cooking topics.  There will be classes all day long, a key note speech over lunch, and show off your cooking skills furing the popluck dinner that evening.

Our key note speaker is Duke Cariadoc of the Bow.

Classes will begin at 9 am Saturday morning.  

Site Fees:  Adults $9 and a dish for the potluck (or a donation for a meat dish).
Ages 8 thru 17 $7  and under 8 years of age - free.

Site fee includes a simple lunch on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

There are a few cabins available to rent for $10 (space for six people) or $3 for a single bed.
Please prepay all cabins to the event steward.  No prepaid reservation - no cabin.

Camping space is available at no additional charge.

Merchants are welcome.  We already have several merchants lined up:  Bad Hare Pottery (run by Mistress Vasilla (former apprentice to Mistress Olga - whom you might know from Pennsic) with beautiful reproduction-like pots, ollas, pipkins etc.  Wolf & Tiger - for beautiful wooden tools, bowls, etc.  Hoge Iron and Anvil for all your outdoor fire cooking needs - grills, spits, tripods, s-hooks, etc.  We are currently working a book dealer or two also.
