Silver Spoon at Mists Investiture is for dishes using the princely spice saffron. If your budget does not run to the finest saffron, you can find bulk pack saffron (carthamus tinctorius) for herb tea in health food stores. A copy of Elinor Fettiplace's Receipe Book will go to the winner of the competition. For more information, contact William Darcy at (phone).


There will be a competition for Food Presentation at the Mists Investiture potluck. Presentation adds a great deal to how we perceive our food. Something that looks good will often seem to taste even better. Many dishes on potluck tables are uninspired or not medieval in appearance (Tupperware is not period, although usefull). Take this opportunity to be creative with your contribution. Presentation includes, but is not limited to, the dishes you use to serve in, how the food is arranged on the table, and decoration of the food itself, such as subdeties. Dress up your food! Also, thanks to all who entered the favor competition at Coronet. There were 15 entries. The winner was Genevieve de le Mer Bleu, for her handmade, hand-embroidered suede glove.
