I think Battlefield Bakery was going well past Pennsic 21. It was a 
location in the food court, selling mostly pasties of various sorts. 
Periodish but not period.

The earlier project, in which Marian was one of the central figures, 
was the Sated Tyger. It had its own location--I don't think there was 
a food court then. Two clay ovens, named Hansel and Gretel, rebuilt 
each year on site. Cooking in them and over the fire. The only modern 
technology used was refrigeration--two refrigerators, concealed. 
Period food.

Marian had serious medical problems due to what turned out to be 
undiagnosed diabetes, which is one reason why, once she was more or 
less recovered, the second project was considerably less ambitious 
than the first.
