Baronial Cooking Competition

To the Populace of the Barony of Sternfeld do we Announce a Grand

Cooking Competition

At Yule this year we will be holding The Sixth Annual Cooking Competition, in an effort to promote the Art of Cooking within the Barony. Documentation is optional, but please provide a complete ingredients list with your entry. The winner will have the bragging rights to the title “Baronial Cooking Champion” for one year and the Beautiful Glass Bowl. (Please note that this is not the Baronial Arts and Sciences Champion position.)

Optional Extra Challenge: Try to make a dish that your persona would NOT have made/eaten in period. Whether due to lack of ingredient availability, cultural practices, or other reasons (maybe your persona hates beets, I don't know).


Following dinner, we'll be clearing a section of the floor and Lady Colette will be leading interested gentles in dances. This will be an all-request dance! Got a dance you love but haven't been able to do in forever? Bring the request. You are encouraged to contact Colette ahead of time ( to ensure she has the steps and music for the dance you'd like to do, especially if it's obscure. All dances will be taught - simpler dances will also be done for newcomers to dance.

Arts and Sciences Display

This year, we'll be having a Procrastinator's UFO (Un Finished Objects) Arts and Sciences display. Documentation is optional. Items to be entered in the display should meet two criteria:
Project is either incomplete or completed within the last few months.

There will be a populace bean-count and small prizes for the winners.
