The Winter War feast will be POTLUCK!

Every family group or individual who wants to be part of this feast is asked to bring something to share. To avoid having too much of one kind of food and not enough of another we suggest you choose a dish according to the first letter of your modern surname:


A - G   - Bread and spreads (butter, cheese, hummus, etc.)

H - M  - Salads and veggies

N - S  - Rice, pasta, pickles, nuts, dried fruit

T -  Z  - Desserts

 How much food? Imagine that no one else brought any food and you (or your group) had to make do with the food you brought. Would there be enough to satisfy you? If the answer is "yes" then that's enough food. (In the past the guideline has been "bring enough for 4-6 servings" which also works but assumes that a single person will bring as much as a family of six.)

What kind of food? Something that looks medieval if possible, but if it's a choice between yummy modern food or questionable medieval fare you know which one is preferred! Please make sure the food is "ready to serve" when it is brought to the buffet table.

The Borealis Culinary Guild will be providing hot meat dishes. There should be plenty for all!



Merchants are welcome however space is limited.  Please contact Galeana Machiavelli (Gail Baldwin)780-962-6547 or email to reserve your place.
