Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

Here is a copy of my first Florilegium artilce for 2009.

If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get a copy of this  
monthly article before I post it to the Internet so you can print it  
in your newsletter, please contact me.

If you have written any A&S documentation, especially any papers,  
please consider sending them to me for possible inclusion in the  
Florilegium.  This is a wonderful way to let others learn from the  
effort you have been putting in as well as letting folks know what  
you are doing.  I especially encourage Laurels to get their  
apprentices to send in papers. Since I will take updates to any  
articles the papers can always be improved later as more is learned.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past nineteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been  
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail  
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make  
this information available to others, I have placed this information  
in a collection of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an  
article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send  
it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. A&S documentation  
and class handouts will also often work out well.
