>Anyone else have Pennsic cooking experiences to share?

We did a dinner for about 16 with A Cooked Dish of Lentils (13th c. 
Andalusian), Rishta (13th c. Middle East), and Musammana  for desert 
(13th c. Andalusian, but a different cookboook). That's pretty much 
our standard; the only thing that has to be brought in is the lamb 
for the Rishta.

I also made oatcakes another night. That's something I had been 
planning to do at Pennsic for years. They are about the simplest 
possible bread-like plausibly period thing, requiring only coarse 
ground oats, salt, water, a fire and a frying pan. Not the world's 
tastiest dish, but not bad.
