Cooking a marvelous repaste of dishes and delicacies from the Silver and Silk Trade Route is a remarkable kitchen caravan. Bethia de la Birche is the head cook. Her team is the Silk Road Travelers. If you were at Kingdom A&S, you may have been fortunate to taste of this team's cooking skills. They were the victors in this year's Siege Cook Off. The flat bread in the first course is from that recipe. Location:
