The Winter War feast

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
T – Z – Bread and spreads
(butter, cheese, hummus, etc.)
N – S – Salads and veggies
H – M – Rice, pasta, pickles, nuts,
A – G – 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 8 or more servings” which also works but
assumes that a single person will bring as much as a family
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!
If you need electricity (eg for a rice cooker) that can be
arranged. 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!
