Congratulations  Helewyse!!!!!

As to the other question.... I had this discussion with a friend in the year 
before I received my leaves.  What it came down to for me (and still does)
The actual cooking I see as service (cooking, shopping, prepping, hauling, etc)
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.

Squawk and Flap!  Congratulations baby bird cousin!

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 
start publishing?

Ever yours in service, and more congrats to Helewyse,
Dame Selene Colfox, Caid
