[Sca-cooks] Topics for Classes for Scholas

What we have done, many times, is a cooking workshop, usually in our
home. People arrive, usually Saturday at one or so. When you arrive
we hand you a stack of period recipes, unredacted, and you pick one.
During the afternoon each participant makes his recipe, with advice
from us as needed, recording in detail everything he does. When
something is done, everyone tries it and makes comments.
The idea is, first, to convince people that they really can start
with a period recipe and end up with something consistent with that
recipe that is good to eat, and second to provide a start at working
out a bunch of recipes. Participants can, of course, take home a copy
of their recipe for further trial and error development.
There's no reason it couldn't be done at a schola, provided you were
willing to spend the three hours+ it would probably take.
