[CAL] 2011 Calontir Cooks' Symposium

The king’s hunters have returned with many gifts from His Majesty’s fields. Not to be out done the populace has brought forward many fish from His Majesty’s streams and the farms still provided much from last harvest. Now comes the call to all of the members of the populace, skilled in the art of cookery, to decide how to best use these items.

Join us in a symposium dedicated to medieval cooking topics with a track of classes exploring the topics of cookery involving foods from field and stream.

There will be classes all day long, multiple roundtable discussions over lunch, and a chance to show off your cooking skills during the potluck dinner that evening as we celebrate the SCA’s Birthday. There will also be archery and a fighting for those only peripherally interested in the culinary and hunting arts.

Call for teachers:
The next Calontir Cook’s Symposium is approaching. And we’re looking for instructors!
It will be an all-day event, with multiple tracks of classes, a potluck feast, and a lunch-time round table round robin. Additionally, this year's symposium will feature a themed track of Field and Stream.

We would love to have you teach!

We’re looking for classes on topics that deal with medieval hunting, medieval fishing, period cooking, period cooking techniques, feast stewarding, and other medieval food-related areas. If you would like to teach a class, please send an email to the Autocrat detailing the class topic, class title, class size, AM or PM preference, class fee (if any), and if your class needs a kitchen or other special requirements.
(We have both outdoor cooking and hands-on class space available)

Additionally - if you have a class you'd like to see, even if you aren’t the one to teach it, please e-mail the Autocrat. We’ll see if a teacher can be found.
