The Fine Art of the Handcrafted Subtlety

OR  Playing with Your Food

In Roman times, Petronius described dishes served with the intention of entertaining and these later came to be called ‘Subtleties’.  As we celebrate Baroness Alexandria and spend a Day in Rome with her, there will be a fun opportunity to create handcrafted subtleties, using ingredients reminiscent of foods from that time.

Participants who want to create something suitable for displaying, and possibly being noticed by the Honoree, will be given a food kit and a large plate for a base.  As a gift to the Baroness, Ansgar and Valkyrie are compiling these kits, which will include fruits, preserved meats, cheese, vegetables, pretzels, homemade marzipan and toothpicks for construction purposes.

There will be 10 kits provided and participants may form a team or work individually.  The age limit is 12 and over with an exception made for a child who brings an adult to work with them.

Are you interested in playing with your food and displaying the result? Then email Ansgar.Kartenmaker@gmail.com to have a kit reserved.  Participants may also augment the kit ingredients with additional food items.

This is a great opportunity to get your name entered on to the Legacy Scroll of Arts and Sciences.
The Legacy Scroll – 6 names will be entered onto this scroll. Mine is the 4th name, so there are 2 spots left! Once the scroll is filled – we will arrange for a “Battle of the Champions” to decide who keeps the Legacy scroll forever.
Those who wish to participate – please message me directly (Malek of Samarqand) or send an email to: storyteller164 (at) gmail (dot) com
