for the PDF fill & print forms.


The Winter War feast will be POTLUCK!

Every family
group or individual who wants to be part of this feast is asked to
bring something to share. To avoid having too much of one kind of
food and not enough of another we suggest you choose a dish
according to the first letter of your modern surname:


A – G

  – Bread and spreads (butter, cheese, hummus,

H – M
– Salads and veggies

N – S
– Rice, pasta, pickles, nuts, dried fruit

T –  Z

 – Desserts

How much food?
Imagine that no one else brought any food and you (or your group)
had to make do with the food you brought. Would there be enough to
satisfy you? If the answer is “yes” then that’s enough food. (In
the past the guideline has been “bring enough for 4-6 servings”
which also works but assumes that a single person will bring as
much as a family of six.)

What kind of
food? Something that looks medieval if possible, but if it’s a
choice between yummy modern food or questionable medieval fare you
know which one is preferred! Please make sure the food is “ready to
serve” when it is brought to the buffet table.

The Borealis
Culinary Guild will be providing hot meat dishes. There should be
plenty for all!



Merchants are welcome however space is limited.  Please
contact Galeana Machiavelli (Gail Baldwin)
or email


to reserve your place.
