Feasting in Oertha

Most members of the press who visit SCA events stop at the fighting. Recently Sam Friedman of the Kodiak (Alaska) Daily Mirror went further and investigated the cooks.

Friedman writes:

Members of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) are used to make-believe activities like sword fights in medieval courts. In Kodiak, the group also stretches the creative limits of climate and geography. At Springhill Hall on Saturday fresh cilantro and other Mediterranean ingredients came together in a three-course southern-Spanish feast created from recipes out of a 13th century cookbook.
