Gode Cookery has been named the "premier" caterer for the Alabama Rennaissance Fair. This year, 2006, marks our 6th annual feast prepared for them. The feast always takes place 1 week before the Fair, and is hosted by the town of Florence, AL. Tickets cost $20 and attendance is always at 200. This year the theme is a Viking Feast.
