I've posted this to the steps, and the other local lists I'm on but please feel free to share this far and wide. I'd really like to reach as many people as possible in all corners of AnTir and beyond. I hope that everyone who was interested in teaching felt welcomed to do so!

We're ramping up for this year's Culinary Symposium and while I've talked the ear off of every foodie I've personally run across I know there are likely more of you out there I haven't had a chance to meet yet. If you're interested in learning, cooking, teaching or eating we'd love to have you!!
The Culinary Symposium will be April 15-17th at Camp Sheppard in Enumclaw, WA. Weekend site fee includes a bunk in a heated cabin and there is an optional food plan for either the weekend or Saturday only so those traveling won't have to worry about bringing food and can focus on classes. I will be posting further information once the website and class re-registration system is up and running, so please stay tuned and let me know if you have any questions
Some classes we already have lined up are:
Cheese Making in 1500-1600s Europe
Spices: Tracing the Spice Routes
Fermentation in theory and practice
Bread without commercial yeast
Visit to Classes by Ivan Day
Vicarious tour of the Hampton Court kitchens,
Sugar Paste Exhibit in York (and More) on Ivan Day and Peter Behr
(Not sure who the last two people are?  Look at Ivan's web site (historicfood.com) and for Peter, take a look at an article about him at *http://tinyurl.com/24ha8eo ).
16th c. Persian polaws/rice dishes
Dining with the Sultan: Cooking 15th & 16th c. Ottoman Food (hands on)
Dining with the Sultan: History of 15th & 16th c. Ottoman Cuisine (lecture)
Tourney cooking with Maitress Anne Marie (hands on)
16th century German cooking/technology class with featured recipes
Cooking in pottery
Medieval English Street Food (survey/lecture)
And a whole track on historical food research papers to be later printed in symposium proceedings, like they do for Oxford and other academic conferences. This is being organized by Master Eduardo who has presented at both Oxford's food symposium and the Renaissance Society of America.
We are currently working on the website and a class pre-registration system so we're tying to get all the class information in place. If you have offered a class please get the me the needed details listed below. If you've been contemplating giving a class, or have offered serveral and haven't yet decided, consider this a gentle, friendly and happy nudge. :) Please send the information to me directly at raphaellad@yahoo.com, or the dedicated planning address foodiejoy@gmail.com.

In joyous service,
Raffaella di Contino
Class Coordinator,

Whoa. We're in the same kingdom now.

Also, I somehow missed all this and should look into it, I guess.

Whoa whoa whoa *Tacoma?*

I really do need to pay more attention. I forgot to see if I might already have people out here I should try to meet in person.

Yuppers, I fell in love and moved to T-town. We bought a house last year right down the block from St. Joseph's hospital.

The site for the Symposium is about an hour and a half away from my house.

Huh. I bet if actually start going to the SCA meetings I might manage to get a ride from someone.

An Tir is a bit much to get used to, and I've been being shy, which doesn't help.

Let me know if you'd like me to introduce you to some people. What all are you interested in, and what type of people do you like to hang out with (e.g. conservative, liberal, religious, SciFi geeks). I grew up in this area so I know people from all walks of life.

Oh, that would be nice. I'm relatively liberal, scifi geek, gamer, and I knit/crochet/spin. I've been working on meeting people through gaming and knit groups, mostly, but then I hit a bump and stop going out (like tonight).

Cool, I know lots of people into gaming and SciFi (including my beloved and I), and in the SCA I know lots of everybody. :)

Are you in Madrone, or is there a local group you identify with? I could put out some introductions for you there too.

Technically Madrone - I was told that the line is a road I live one building north of. I liked Wyewood when I made it out once, and neither are particularly convenient though Wywood's social closer. I do plan to make Wyewood next week, though, because I finally remembered to put it on my calendar. The Madrone chatelaine took me to whatever event was labor day weekend and I've been to one of their socials since.

I like the idea of the 'comfit making' And the English streetfood. Armoured turnips, anyone??

Sounds like a tasty conference. Wish I could be there! But I can't even get to the Bronze Age conference in Cardiff this year:-(

We're hoping to have this symposium in this location every other year, and on the off years have it travel. We're also hoping to actually print preceedings of the lecture track this year and I'll be posting more information here once it's available.

I've always wanted to take some of the Ivan Day classes, most especially the Italian Renaissance class (no surprise there). So hopefully sometime I'll get to your side of the pond for that. :)
