I?am wondering, and I think this is a good place to ask...

I am pondering the viability of doing a cooking demonstration as an A&S entry into the Cooking area (static,?not performance)

What I would want to show is the progression of taking a Period Recipe and translating it into a viable recipe for today's kitchens. I realize?to do it right,?it would require a Power Point presentation, as well as a formal demo table, complete with cooktop and the mirror to show your hands performing the technique. (This way, I would not disturb the folks cooking in the kitchen)
I would choose a recipe that shows at least two methods of cooking, such as parboiling and then frying, and then finishing off the product, for general serving. 
It should, if properly planned out, and pre-prepared, take no more then 15 minutes....

Am I about to send shockwaves through the Lords and Ladies of the Laurel and assorted Purists? 

Should I plan this out further or just do the recipe at home and dish it out, with documentation,?at the Faire?
