> I have been told time and again that I just "can't" serve fish or lamb at a SCA feast. That it will not be recieved well here in CAID. I KNOW that it SHOULD be eaten, that it was extremely period, and that lamb/mutton and various fish made up the major protein elements of the period diet in many cultures, BUT, I am loathe to argue with the powers that be. Especially at todays prices. Now if I can only get them to eat goat!!

That's a load of hooey, or maybe just a big fish story.  Remember, Caid 
is mostly seacoast and we have all the best surfing beachs! I have 
served fish in Caid for years and people try and like it.  Even pickled 
herring, which got to be nicknamed "Earl Yummies" on account of a couple 
of past royals who fancied the stuff.

I have been rumbling for years about doing an all-seafood feast during 
the Lenten season.  No fish-haters allowed.  Would you care to help make 
this a reality?  I need a kick to get started. 

Bon appetit,
Selene Colfox, Altavia, Caid
