|Victuality: The event! (Period cooking for the SCA: Kitcheners, Vintners and Brewers) ||Event date: August 23rd, 2013 - August 25th, 2013|

|Cooks, kitcheners, vintners and brewers! Dragonship Haven wants you!|
On August 23-25th, the Barony of Dragonship Haven invites you to join us at Schreiber's Farm in Oxford, CT for a weekend of cooking, learning, tasting and experimenting in a beautiful rustic setting. This will be a perfect opportunity to share your favorite period recipes, swap cooking stories, and sample the food of cooks from across the kingdom, and maybe even the Known World.
As foodies well know, where there is good food there is often good drink! Vintners and brewers are invited to prepare their libations for display and sampling (by those over 21, per CT state law) under the "tavern tent" throughout the day. Period recipes for libations are not required, but in keeping with the theme of the event they are encouraged and this will be a wonderful opportunity to show your skills, whether your libations are ready to sample or works in progress.
Please note that all culinary entries must include full ingredient lists; modern sanitary considerations must be taken in their preparation.
A shared cooking fire will be lit for those who wish to cook, teach or learn to do so in that manner. For those not so inclined, a small propane field kitchen will be set up with a teaching area. Those wishing to cook or to teach a class are asked to please contact the Kitchener, Master Jaji, or the co-Steward, Baroness Ysabella, before July 1 so that space and time might be made for your class or your culinary endeavor and we can avoid too much overlap. Teaching and learning will be the focus, but we must never lose sight of the main purpose of food: eating it! As there is no formal dayboard or feast, event attendees are encouraged to bring or make potluck contributions throughout the weekend and for Saturday dinner. Breakfast and coffee will be available on Saturday and Sunday mornings for a voluntary donation, and water and non-alcoholic drinks will be available in the common areas.
As a grand finale to a day of food, fun, and fellowship, we would like to invite all who wish to donate and partake to offer something for Saturday evening's potluck dinner either by the fire or under the community tent. Several restaurants are also located nearby.
Given the multiple opportunities at this event for becoming stuffed to critical mass, tent camping for the weekend is encouraged (No cabins). It is asked that those wishing to camp the weekend pre-register by July 1st.
The camping area is accessible by vehicle, but the access to the main event area from the camping area is over a large footbridge; all food and equipment will have to be brought into the main area by hand truck or wagon. Schreiber's Farm is a primitive site, and while there is drinking water available the water point is a distance away from the main event area and will have to be brought over in containers. Also, as no electricity will be available, those cooking will be responsible for maintaining their own coolers. There are several stores and supermarkets nearby to replenish supplies as needed.
Site opens on Friday August 23rd at 4PM and closes on Sunday August 25th at 4PM. Anyone onsite after that time will be asked to assist in breakdown and cleanup.
Site Opens: Friday, August 23rd at 4 p.m.
Site Closes: Sunday, August 25th at 4 p.m.
