Who do you mean by "we?" If Judith does her camp cooking using only 
period ingredients, she will be well above the SCA median, since most 
of the Society, judging at least by Pennsic, is doing modern cooking, 
complete with corn on the cob.

I think she would have more fun being more period than that, but what 
she proposes is easily up to the level of current practice.
