<<< Several of you have asked me when the cookbook Marian Walke (aka Marian
of Edwinstowe, aka Old Marian) and I wrote together would be available.
This cookbook contains remembrances and recipes from the two cook shops
Marian and I participated in at the Pennsic Wars. >>>

Wow. both versions are rather expensive. I guess I'll have to settle for the black and white one. And even that one is going to have to wait a little while. :-(  I hope some of these pictures will be from early Pennsics which I couldn't get to.  I have however, saved this message to go into the Florilegium Cookbooks-SCA-msg file, so that others can find it.

I have heard some comments on this list about this "Battlefield Bakery", but my first Pennsic was Pennsic 21, and it was apparently long gone by then. What was the other cookshop?

From what I remember folks saying, the Battlefield Bakery was known for its period cooking, or at least what was considered period cooking then. Can someone give me some more details about the Battlefield Bakery? Any personal remembrances that you have of it? Where was it located? Did they have a place to sit down? Or was it like the soup bowl place, one where you got your food and then found somewhere else to eat? When was it in business?
