Well, the Principality of the Mist holds three feasts a year: two 
Investitures and the Bardic Competition and Feast.

I can't speak for the other two principalities, Cynagua and Oertha, 
nor for The Marches, which include Korea, Japan, Okinawa, and Guam.

IIRC, the Baronies of Darkwood, the Westermark, and Vinhold, which 
are branches of the Principality, do one feast a year (although one 
may do two). At least one has some cooking and serving stuff, but 
it's quite far from me and i've never done a feast anywhere near it.

Shires/Provinces/Cantons/etc. for the most part do one feast per 
year, if at all, and they have, as far as i can tell, rather limited 
budgets. Many of these smaller branches only do pot-luck or "barbecue 
in the park" type feasts, for which they've no need to own cooking

I've started a thread on our Kingdom cooking list about having a 
branch own feast gear - there is no branch cooking list for my 
Principality or the various Shires and Provinces with which i play.

Can others on this list discuss how their branch or guild does the 
"own their own cooking and serving equipment" thing, please?
