With the exception of August (because of Pennsic), the Middle Kingdom Cooks
list has been regularly having "challenges" among its members. These may
include things like virtual siege challenges, disaster recovery challenges
(e.g.,, the kitchen burned down the night before the event, what do you
do?), or thought provokers intended to spur discussions (e.g., other than
your chef's knife, what single tool is essential to your recreation?).
Challenges are issued (by me, based on private requests and my little ol'
evil imagination), the first of every month or the closest day thereto if
that day falls on a weekend or a holiday. I issued September's Challenge
this morning and thought that, now that I've resubscribed to SCA Cooks,
perhaps people here might be interested in seeing the challenges as well.




In honor of being back from Pennsic (and at the request of a few members),
this month's Cook's Challenge is a good, old fashioned, (virtual) siege
challenge, taken from Iasmin's Disaster Deck (minus the disaster).

The Challenge:

You are the besieged in a fortified location. Your food stores are running
low and you must figure out a way to end the siege to avoid the possibility
of starvation. Your enemy has agreed to parlay at your location and you must
appear to be able to hold out for many more months should negotiations go
poorly. Your goals are to create the greatest number of *tasty* and viable
dishes with only the ingredients listed below.
