Cooks Collegium

Come and join us in the Barony of the Rhydderich Hael for a day of Medieval Cooking! On June 24, 2017 at the Wrights Corners Fire Company, we will be having a Cooks Collegium. We have plenty of space to not only play in the kitchen, but to do outdoor cooking as well, table space for the scribes or other A&S projects and plenty of outdoor green space for fencing and fighting pick-ups and melee practice and an archery range.

The autocrat is Baroness Juliana Rosalia Dolce di Siena (Julie DeWind). She can be contacted at julianarosalia AT gmail DOT com, on Facebook and (716) 228-9340 (no calls after 9pm please). 56 Windermere Blvd Amherst, NY 14226.

There will be both indoor and outdoor cooking space. The site is wet, so we welcome brewers as well. Our class coordinator is Her Excellency, Countess Marguerite Eisenwald. Please register your class here: Please contact her with questions at projectmeek AT gmail DOT com, 716-338-8184 or Facebook messenger. We do ask that teachers please provide a list of ingredients (with amounts) in advance so that we can provide a larder for the classes to use.

There will be challenge baskets but instead of having a formal competition, it will be focused on challenging yourself as a cook. More information will be posted soon.

If anyone would like to donate specialty ingredients for the classes or donate money to pay for those ingredients, please contact Juliana.

We will have a cookbook and cooking resource library set up in the main hall. Please bring books (include a list of all titles) to loan for the reference library! (The library will be staffed at all times, and books will not leave the library area.) Use your phone to take photos of pages that interest you, or use our copier/scanner.Questions about the library? Contact Mistress Alicia Langland at hutchnsn AT bucknell DOT edu.

Both lunch and dinner are included in your event registration. All of the food cooked in the morning's classes will be served for lunch and then the afternoon's classes food will be served for dinner. We will be taking a break from classes during the meals so that everyone has a chance to eat and chat. The sideboard coordinator is THL Padraig O'Branduibh. He can be contacted at nihilxaos AT gmail DOT com.

There will be camping on Saturday night into Sunday morning! There is no fee to camp. All we ask is that if you dig a fire pit, to please fill it back in and to not impede the helipad.
