Cooking Competition at War College

This year we’ve decided to put a different spin on the
traditional “siege cooking” competition at War
College. If you have ever seen the “Iron Chef” show
on TV this will sound familiar. A single cook or a
team lead by a single cook (which is highly
recommended) will challenge my “champion.” In future
will be the previous year’s victor will serve as
champion, but this year it will be my handsome and
talented husband. In order the keep this fair I will
not be judging, but serving as MC.

Here is the challenge:

Bring your entire kitchen of raw ingredients, spices,
cook books, cutlery, pots pans and the proverbial
kitchen sink.

In morning court I will reveal the “mystery”
ingredient (all that we have left in the besieged
castle’s larder) which will be the featured item in as
many dishes as your team can create in 3 hours on
site. The mystery ingredient will be supplied by the
competition host. All other ingredients will be
supplied by the entrants.

We are hoping for the competition to start following
morning court or no later than 11 AM so that we will
not conflict with evening court and the potluck.

Here are the rules:

Entrants may borrow one and only one ingredient from
outside of their team, but must remain on site. (No
going to the store!)

Entrants must present a list of all ingredients used.

All ingredients must be known in period. Any
questionable ingredient choices can be challenged and
must be defended with documentation.

Difficult/impossible to find ingredients may be
substituted (judges discresion) for modernly available
items. (ie White carrots are no longer easily
available, so orange carrots are an acceptable
substitute. You may have forgotten to bring turnips,
but you cannot substitute potatoes for them because
the original ingredient is easily obtainable in modern
grocery stores.

Any use of ingredients violating the competition rules
will result in disqualification of the dish.

Judging criteria:

(Shameless groveling inserted here) Desperately
seeking judges who wished to be stuffed to the gills
with good food and grateful thanks from the hosts.
Contact Svava.

Documentation (extra points for period recipes and use
of ingredients in a period way. (ie all of the
ingredients in a Rheuben sandwich date to period, but
they were probably never served in that way, so the
sandwich would not score as highly as corned beef
sliced and laid on a trencher with onions, cabbage and
slices of cheese). Bonus points for period cooking
methods (cooking over the fire, making your own bread,
etc)
Taste (If you burn it not as many points, ok? But if
it was bland in period, we will not count that against
you. (ie flat beer is period but does not appeal to
modern palates, this would not count against you)
Presentation (is it attractively displayed, and is it
presented in a period manner / setting (ie paper
plates would not score as highly as trenchers.
Subtleties earn extra points)
Use of featured ingredient (each dish gets one point
and extra points for innovative use of featured item)

Prize (Ahhh the good part)

We have quite a large basket of cool prizes to be
given to the team who wins this competition. Our
defender is not disqualified from winning this prize,
since I do the shopping, it is really stuff he wants.
(Proper inspiration is everything). The basket
currently contains a cooking sized iron ladle and fork
made by Master Grendel, two non alcoholic beverages,
chocolates, a ceramic carafe and three cups and two
cork stoppered bottles appropriate for holding oils or
other cooking ingredients. The basket may grow as
inspiration strikes. Contributions welcomed

A Herald in the bright green and gold livery of Herr Von Greiffenburg enters the hall and thumps the floor with his staff three times to gain the attention of all.

“Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!

A Tournament of Love is to be held!

All Knights, Masters, Squires and Gentles at Arms,
come and demonstrate your Prowess on the Field of Love,
to increase the Renown of your Consort and Inspiration.

The Tournament shall be a mixed weapons list;
first by weapon of choice in Honorable Challenge meet,
then by Consort’s Challenge, Inspiration’s Honor to defend,
Each combatant shall face All in turn, weapons drawn by lot.
Then all shall meet in melee bound,
thus the Victor shall be found.

For Grace and Beauty shall hold the field this day,
to enter the lists a King’s ransom you need not pay —
just some small token to demonstrate your Largesse,
to share with all others who defend Love’s honor with their Prowess.
Gifts of Gold and Silver will the Benefactor add for his largesse,
to reward Virtue, Valor, and Victory by fair Inspiration’s hand.
Deeds most Chivalric increase the Renown of all.

Lists open 9 am Sunday at the Three Mountains encampment,
Tournament to begin at 10 am. Promptness will be rewarded
with the opportunity to grace your Inspiration and demonstrate your prowess.
Tardiness will be rewarded with a seat in the Gallery and your Inspiration’s scorn!

(Translation in StickJock-ese:
There is to be a Hardsuit tournament on Sunday morning at War College,
inspection begins at 9 am and the first challenge will be at 10 am.
Be on time.
Challenge round, consort’s challenge round, round robin, and grand melee.
You must have a consort to enter the list. If consort is absent, a proxy for consort’s challenge will be arranged.
Good behavior rewarded; kill lots, have fun.
Blanket tourney — you must add an item to the blanket to enter the list.
Prizes of real gold and silver will be added by the sponsor in addition to those prizes provided by each fighter.
The sponsors, Ulf and Sarnat –That’s US–, are celebrating their first Wedding Anniversary and the wedding of our good friends Thomas and Aine.)

The Herald then posts the announcement by the door and asks the keep for some beer. Heralding being thirsty work you know.
