So Antonia where are you located?  Here in Atlantia it is up to the head cook to announce the menu or not ahead of time.  Even if our guild chooses not to announce ahead of time we always have the menu posted at troll and at the kitchen with the menu, including ingredients on the tables.

Our guild has a stuffed carrot we toss into Court if it is running a bit too long.  Even if the Crown comes to grace our event our Baroness is quick to let them in on the cue and it has been taken with a giggle and a bit of theatrics so no bad feelings anywhere.

We have a number of vegetarians in our group so we always try to balance our offerings to include well balanced as possible vegetarian offerings, including soup.

Having made waaaaaay too many pierogies and dumplings for feasts I simply refuse to do it any more.  I prefer to get them already prepared.
