The Winter War feast will be

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, etc.)

H –
  – Salads
and veggies

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

T –


The Borealis Cooking group is providing the
hot meat dishes.


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.

Please bring a
label of the ingredients of your dish for people with



Merchants are welcome however
space is limited.  Please contact Joan at
