Non-Royal Hospitality:  Still Generous for Its Time!  - Else von Oberfranken
We'll learn about the travel, accommodations and rather lavish tables set for known guests and traveling strangers in Western Europe, including libations and popular food of the period surrounding the 13th Century.  Long, hard journeys were rewarded with welcoming homes in a society that had to depend on one another to keep safe and fed; and often with music, stories and the finest dining and drinking ware the hosts had to offer. 


Judge the Mistress, or, Learn about the EKBG Panel Tool on Someone Else's Dime - Mistress Sylvia
Participants will learn how the EKBG panel tool works by judging two different beverages.  This will be a guided study where we talk about the criteria and reach a consensus to score a modern beverage and a period beverage.  You will leave the class understanding more about how documentation can support your entry and what effective documentation can look like.  You will also see how modern beverages fair using the guild tools for evaluation.  Bring a clear glass, a pen, and a willingness to compromise with your peers!
