That was fun, that virtual feast that we did on the west-cooks list
back in Nov-Dec 2004 - i assume that's the one you mean.
I, too, served fish at feasts twice before we did the Virtual Feast.
I served a Catalan recipe using salmon - in a bitter orange sauce
with raisins, herbs, & spices - for the Mediterranean Tour feast, and
fresh tuna - very small amounts, 'cuz it's expensive, in a date sauce
- at my Greco-Roman feast.
For those who weren't there... we didn't really cook anything as a
group, we just contributed recipes - one course at a time - for a
total of eleven courses. By that last few courses, there were not too
many contributions - but, then this began a week or so before US
Thanksgiving and ended shortly before Christmas, although some folks
were still contributing recipes well into January.
As for serving fish at feasts, I'd say the West Kingdom is pretty
