is Lochac's Brewer's Vintners and Imbibers Guild Newsletter... 
Remember the email was a brain dump in 2003 resurrected for Lilliah..
 Now I will do it up into an article but NOT in the next few weeks...
 Well, I've just had a feast dumped on my lap with 2 weeks notice...
Well actually a whole weekend... I've put together a feast plan I
think we can achieve... I have a budget for A$4200 for 120 people for
a weekend, which includes equipment hire (Meat Roasters).  The ex-gf
(who's on very good terms) had to pull out because her Mum's cancer
has returned and with that and exams she's not capable of also running
a feast.  I'm glad she pulled out now rather than 2 days before
 The menu concept set  was not my own and I'm not entirely
confortable with autocrat setting food menus, so I've re-arranged it
and 'gussied' it up a hell of a lot... I have a reputation for fine
food to uphold...
 The Draft Menu plan so far is:

 Yes, you should.  I'm not sure  what "BVI" is, but yes you should   
 definitely write up this article and send it to Stefan for his   
 Florilegium files.
