To the Populace of the Barony of Sternfeld does the Cooking Guild Announce a Grand
At Yule this year the Cooking Guild of Sternfeld will be holding The Fourth Annual Cooking Competition, in an effort to promote the Art of Cooking within the Barony. The winner will have the bragging rights to the title “Baronial Cooking Champion” for one year and the Beautiful Glass Bowl, prizes will be awarded for 2nd and 3rd place (Please note that we are hoping to make this a yearly event to promote cooking within the Barony and this is not the Baronial A&S Champion position.)
Please see the simple guidelines below for the Competition:
Please remember cooking is fun and this is a forum for new cooks and experienced cooks to show case their craft.
Everyone who wishes to participate brings an inexpensive SCA-related gift of some sort.
(Ideas might be: clothing, uncut fabric in a usable length, feast gear, armor, archery equipment, cooking equipment, spices, herbs, jewelry, etc. Secondhand items are welcome and encouraged! Ideally this will be an opportunity to drag out really cool items that you never really use, and find them new homes with people who will love them. Handmade items are completely appropriate. With this kind of stuff value is relative, so the guideline is that it should be something you think someone would be pleased to receive, but not so valuable that they’d feel awkward.)
All these people sit in one section of the room together with their gifts. All names of those participating are tossed into a hat, and drawn forth. As a person’s name is drawn, they get up and are allowed to pick one person remaining in the original section to receive a gift from. The gift is presented, and the gifter moves to a second seating area. (Those who have received their gifts sit on whichever side is appropriate depending on whether the gift they brought has been chosen or not.)
When the next name is drawn, that person may either choose someone from the available pool to give them a gift, or they may choose to steal a gift away from someone. If they steal a gift, the person who had their gift stolen may steal or choose a gift in turn. That turn ends when a new gift is finally chosen, and another name is drawn.
