I was there and will say it was a brilliant execution although the kitchen
at the site was not adequate to cook the feast in the time allotted.
I showed up a day early and baked a few loaves of plain manchet, the last
batch being done on site to allow the odor of baking bread to waft into the
hall--or at least that was the plan. The structure of the hall and the
ventilation sent the wafting out the back door. Had there been more time or
better facilities, I might have added a light rye bread to the meat course.
In any event, I got to play in the kitchen--and not be responsible for
The food was excellent and the service expeditious. In my opinion, it was a
success. I'll leave the critique and the recipes to GwenCat.
