Baroness’ Brine Delicacies Competion:

In the spirit
of fun and a love of pickled foods, Her Excellency, Baroness Kara,
will be holding a competition for the best pickled fruit,
vegetable, and/or protein.  All pickled food items must have
been prepared by the person entering the competition.  All
persons wishing to enter should bring either one large unopened jar
or two small unopened jars of the item/items they are entering.
 Entries will be judged on taste, texture, and appearance with
additional points being given for unique display of the entry.
 So bring your best pickled food, and see if you can win the
pickling prize!

Subtlety Contest:

Do you have
an interest in medieval cooking?  Have you always wanted to
make food that looks like something else?  Well, here is your
chance.  Subtleties took a wide range of forms throughout the
period from simply vividly colored foods (like frumenty) to more
elaborate displays representing allegorical, mythological, or
historical events (e.g. models of castles, cooked meats redressed
to look like the animal they originated from).  Entrants
must include a list of ingredients with their entry.
 Documentation is not required for this contest, but you can
present it with your entry if you so choose.

Siege Cooking Contest:

Participants will be
provided a bag of ingredients and three recipes. The recipes will
be written in Old English; so the participants must either be able
to read it or decipher it. Participants will have 2 and a half
hours to complete the recipes. They must bring their own serving
and cooking gear. They must be present for while their entry is
being judged and be able to describe it to the judges.  There
will be a limited number of supplies for this contest.  Those
wishing to enter are asked to contact the Event Stewards (contact
information below) prior to the event so that enough supplies will
be available for those wishing to enter.

Silent Auction:

A silent
auction will be held at Celtic Revolt as a fundraiser for the
Barony’s Sergeants Trials.  The auction is being hosted by the
Grand Bazaar on Merchant’s Row.  Bidding will begin after
morning Court on Saturday, and it will close just prior to Closing
Court on Sunday.  Anyone wishing to donate an item to be
placed in the silent auction is encouraged to contact the event’s
Merchant Coordinator.  His contact information can be found
