Yuletide feasting in Geneva-on-the-Lake

"Good friends, with praise and thanksgiving to the God who sent his son, we wish for each of you a blessed Christmas!" says the Queen and the feasting commences at the Elizabethan Yuletide Feaste in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio. Sarah Crump of the Plain Dealer was on hand for the festivities. (photos)

The four-course feast included mulled wine, pork loin, salad and bread pudding. (Descriptions and recipes for the dishes are in the article.) Diners were entertained by costumed revelers and jesters.

Said B.J. Green, the director of the Madison Chorale that performs at the Feaste, "Elizabeth would have appreciated the effort. She liked a good time."
