You're right, Urtatim; I should have been more specific, and specified "New World" foods.  


It's not a hardship, per se, but many people do like their tomatoes, white potatoes, and corn on the cob.  (I'm among them, and corn is just coming into seasn during Pennsic, so I can certainly see their point.)  And the last time I was at Pennsic, I really enjoyed the Ambulance Corps' pepperoni rolls, so I'm not without sin here, either.


My own meal plan (should I ever have one for a two-week event), would be more "Medievaloid" than fully Medieval, though I would steer away from Western Hemisphere foods.
