As Helewyse already has a Laurel for her cookery and her pottery, I am assuming that the MidRealm Pelicans were honoring her for her service in presenting banquets and probably for her years of service as Baroness of the Barony of Red Spears.  I am guessing here, as I was not at the event to hear what was said.

> On Saturday morning, at the Baron Wars event in the MidRealm, Baroness Helewyse, of the Barony of Red Spears, was placed on vigil to be elevated to the order of the Pelican for her cooking.  Later that evening, she was elevated.  From what she has said is that she is planning to have a reception at Pennsic with food of her own making, to celebrate this honor with those who were not at the event.

I usually think of period cooking as a Laurel rather than Pelican category, although obviously it could be either. Do you know if they were distinguishing between researching cooking and putting on period feasts? Do different kingdoms differ in which they tend to give?
