Acceptance of period food isn't a class issue here, as the adventurous and
un-adventurous eaters and the degrees between are fairly even spread through
the populace. The problem is one of income, which was Duke Inman's point
when he went to beat on the BOD. Many of our SCAdians don't have a lot of
discretionary income. I can sell a feast for $7 a head, but $10 or higher
is pushing the envelope.
