Here is the current iteration of the menu. It may still change, but more
likely additions than subtractions. The foods are all
Anglo/Saxon/Scandinavian, with an emphasis on the 9-10th C.
Local sources for the food served include Lady Elizabeth de Belcaire,
baker, Michelle Russell, eggs, and Viscountess Muriel, apple cider vinegar.
Flatbread (multigrain, possibly oat & rye)
A variety of hardboiled eggs
Freshly made butter
Cold sliced lamb on greens with cider dressing
Stockfish soup (budget depending)
Grilled fowl, most likely chicken, but could be a game bird if I can afford
it. Could just be grilled chicken wings.
Pickled root veggies
Apples dipped in honey
Barley porridge with clotted cream
Skyr (it’s like yogurt) with seasonal fruit
Beverages: Oxymel, Small Mead, Water The site is discreet – you may bring
your own ale, cider, wine. (I’d recommend ale or cider with the menu) but
all bottles, empty or full, must be removed from the site due to AA
meetings held there.
We’ll have tablecloths and candles, but you’ll need to bring your own bowl
(pref wood), small eating knife, spoon and cup. The hall will be set up as
a great mead hall, so it’s not conducive to bringing a fancy feastgear
setup. We’ll be sitting on benches, so you may want to bring a small flat
pillow, as I don’t think all the benches are padded. If you have a bench,
please pm me, in case we don’t have enough already.
To buy event/feast tickets, please contact Leofwen. There will be room for off-board seating. I’m planning on 50
guests, so get your reservations in early.
Common allergens for this feast include: wheat, dairy, tree nuts, fish. I’m
careful not to cross-contaminate in the kitchen, but the tables will be
served communally. If you need something served separately, please contact
me to discuss.
Come join Their Highnesses of the Mists as Their successor is chosen. Their Highnesses ask that all combatants bring a banner to add to the pageantry of the day.

As a reminder, all participants must be current members. Fighters must have current authorization cards. Either the fighter or the consort must be resident in the principality of the Mists to compete. Combatants and Consorts may be of the same gender.
