Forwarded by specific request; thought you'd all like to know.
>From: John Capobianco
> I recently took a class at the Institute of Culinary Education in
>Manhattan with Cathy Kaufman, the ICS Food Historian. Kathy is the author
>of a High School textbook dealing with Ancient Cuisine (Mesopotamia, Egypt,
>Greece and Rome).
> The class was on Imperial Roman Cuisine. It took about an hour but I
>finally asked her if she was familiar with the Society for Creative
> She said, "The SCA, oh yes."
> She went on to tell me that when she first got into researching period
>recipes that Cariadoc's writings were very accessible and helpful. She
>also said that some of the best work being done in this field is being done
>by 'passionate amateurs'.
> They have 2 more period classes coming up, one Elizabethan and one
> I think I'm going to register to take at least one of the classes.
> She's a very nice and accessible person, worth the $100 for the class,
>at least for the experience of working with real kitchen equipment.
> Please let Cariadoc know that the Food Historian at the ICE knows his
>work, and really knew his mundane name before his persona.
> Please pass this on to other SCA e-mail lists, etc.
