As to the other question.... I had this discussion with a friend in the year

but the art of creating a pleasing menu from period sources (and in my case
doing the translations) and re-creating tasty recipes from those sources, that
is an art.

This might be a good time to bring up the ongoing SCA philosophical
discussion of Cooking as Art vs. Cooking as Service. I hold a Pelican,
for my work in Cookery and Heraldry, and several kingdom arts awards up
to the Grant level, also for cookery. I do cook from period sources a
lot and teach a lot. Where do I go from here? Should I cook more or
Ever yours in service, and more congrats to Helewyse,
Dame Selene Colfox, Caid
