Cooking and defense in the Midrealm

Before the recent St. Valentine’s Day Massacre event in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Rebecca Thiele of NPR affiliate station WMUK spoke with several SCA members about life in the Society, including such diverse topics as combat, cooking and real life defense. The article is available in both print and audio.

Interviewed by Thiele were husband and wife Raymond d'Anjou and Hauviette d'Anjou (Dan Mondoux and Channon Russette-Mondoux) of Portage, Michigan. In addition to discussing cooking in the SCA, Mistress Hauviette shares the story of chasing away a burglar with her SCA sword.
