Middle Kingdom Cooks' Guild Activities
Despite rumors to the contrary, the e-mail list and website for the Middle Kingdom Culinary Collegium is alive and well. The MKCC website underwent some growing pains and disappeared for a spell before being reorganized earlier this spring. New Year AS XXXIX finds both the list and website alive and well.
The list is operated under the able hands of the MK Webminister Master Dafydd Blaidd. All are welcome to join. To subscribe to the email list, just send an email with no subject line to email@example.com, with the following line as the only information in the body of the message: subscribe mk-cooks
The list at the moment is a low volume affair, compared to a number of other Society culinary lists.
The MKCC website is now under the able administration of Her Excellency Mistress Iasmin de Cordoba, and it may be accessed by clicking on the header above. The site offers over 30 articles on a range of culinary topics from eating at Pennsic to Coronation and feast menus to surveys on tomatoes, sugar paste, and sugar icing. Contributed original articles on culinary topics are welcome. Bookmarks to the former site at http://home.earthlink.net/~mkcooks should be changed or deleted, as they now lead nowhere.
Lastly, do mark your calendars for the annual 2004 Middle Kingdom Cooks' Symposium which will be held December 4 2004 in the Canton of Three Hills (Kalamazoo, Michigan). The site is the beautiful Cathedral of Christ the King, site of Bardic Madness South in 2003. Wet site, lovely kitchen, large main hall, nice sanctuary, easy to find off I-94 and close to all sorts of amenities. Ably autocrated by: Mistress Siobhan (judith.a.kirk at wmich.edu; facility logistics); Mistress Iasmin (iasmin at comcast.net; teacher liaison, class scheduling) and Dame Hauviette (channonmondoux at yahoo.com; keynote speaker, auction, etc.) Contact them for more information.
