Welcome to the AnTir Culinary Symposium

We are very excited to have teachers coming from all over the
known world as well as some amazing teachers from all over
Antir. Among other things we will be having at least 3
presentations of Oxford papers regarding hisorical food, and
lots of great hands on classes of all kinds.

You can find further information on our shiny new
website here:

There are still day spots available! If you plan to come for
the day, please still let us know so we can plan for enough
food for breakfast, lunch and dinner (or if you’ll only be
there for some of the meals).

Money for sleeping space reservations was Due August First.
If there are any spaces left available we will post something
here. Please note that the sleeping spaces available at this
point are most likely not heated. We also have a crash-o-crat
organizing crash space with local SCA households if you might
prefer that option. You can reach Mistress Gwen about crash
space here:

For those who like to RV, there is also a year-round
RV Park located
at Belfair State
, located approximately 10-15 minutes from the
Culinary Symposium site location.

Please consider car pooling as much as possible. There is
parking on site, but we want to be sure to have parking for
everyone so we’re asking everyone to ride share as much as
possible. Please let me know if you would like assistance
finding ride buddies.
