To which Gunthar replied:
<<< I have been to Calontir parties and did indeed notice that most  
of the offerings were
period foods and was impressed.>>

Are these open to whomever shows up or are these just for Peers and  
Royalty and such? If the former can someone tell me when the Calontir  
party at this upcoming Gulf Wars is going to be? :-)

What kinds of foods are served at these?

<<< Now if we can only get other groups doing the
same. Especially if the only drinks served there would be period as  
well. Hey,
Pennsic goers drink some pretty scary concoctions so a proper ale and  
shouldn't be too outrageous as long as it was alcoholic for these  
folk. >>>

Okay, I have this file which probably has some recipes which might  
work for outdoor party foods, but what other suggestions do people  
have? Maybe I need to create another file specifically on party or  
revel foods.

<<< Just as I have a dream of an event where the day is spent in  
classes on bardcraft,
period tavern cookery and maybe cut-and-thrust combat then the  
evening is
a revel in as period a tavern as modernly possible, >>>

What would you consider "period tavern cookery"? Hmmm. Anyone, Laurel  
or not, want to write me a paper for the Florilegium on period tavern  
food or cookery? Unfortunately, we don't seem to have any evidence  
that "Scotch Eggs" are period. I do have one, rather thick, book on  
the history of taverns but I haven't read it yet.
