febuary's meeting of the cooks and poisoners guild
again for the wide distribution, I think this will be the last
greetings cooks and poisoners,
case I wasn't clear, what we do is we look up a recipe (period hopefully but not
always. you get extra points for research) and you cook it at home, and then you
bring it to the meeting (when I say meeting I mean potluck) then we all sit
around and eat like pigs. we also talk about cooking, teach cooking,
threaten to poison kings (not our own of course) and sometimes gossip (mind you
I don't do the gossip part but I understand others do)
meeting is at 17:00est (ok that's 5 o'clock pm) on sunday the 21th of febuary (I
got the date wrong before) and the theme for this meeting is that there is no
theme. you can bring your favorite period dish. please bring any
recipes that you use with you to share.
warning: although many vegetable dishes are served the point of
this group is PERIOD dishes. PERIOD dishes often had meat and/or meat
by-products in them. they also didn't much concern themselves with things
like alergies or diets. several vegetarians have come to the meetings and
have plenty to eat, but just in case you have been warned.
additional warning: members are known to use garlic, meat, onions,
mushrooms, milk, eggs, things with fat and cholesterol, and a variety of
spices. if you are allergic to anything please let us known so we can warn
you what is in what dish.
new people to our group, although the thrust of our group is to cook period
dishes and then share them, we understand that there are going to be people who
want to join in but don't have any recipes, or do think they are good cooks, or
if they don't bring a fully documented dish we won't let them in. well
don't be intimidated, we want you to come. cook your favorite dish if you
don't have period sources. if you want to learn to cook but you aren't
there yet go to the deli at the grocery store and buy a roasted chicken.
almost every culture in period ate roasted fowl. then once you join we can
start teaching you.
want to come in garb, go ahead but we don't normally do so.
