I think that's a fantastic idea. Given how many people move to the An  
Tir area (specifically Oregon, where I lived for a long while during  
school), preparing food for anyone else is just a minefield of  
potential dangers and offenses given entirely unintentionally. But  
sharing a recipe means that the gift recipient gets the pleasure of  
learning about Period recipes and cooking methods, and can enjoy the  
dish over and over again instead of just once.
