From The Page (March, 2004):
Food fight! Well, not quite but close. Fighting, cooking and madness! "Mad! Mad! Mad! She must be mad!" the populace is saying "whatever was she thinking?!" (insert evil laugh here) Kitchen Wars will have new and wonderful twists this year.
FIGHTING - Kitchen Wars - The tourneys will be much as they have been in the past; weapons should something that would have been used in a medieval kitchen: ladles, skewers, fry pans, spatulas, etc. Barroom Bransle - who says music and fighting don't mix.
COOKING- Kitchen Wars Challenge. A challenge is given to any and all cooks to muster your teams and show your culinary skills. We encourage everyone to participate in the competition, even if you are new to period cooking. There will be a mystery ingredient (meat) and a budget (provided) to purchase necessary ingredients for a several-dish meal, of at least 4 dishes. Meals will be judged on flavor, variety, quality of cookery, originality and just plain good taste. Your team could win bragging rights! Prizes will be given and cooks decorated! This is a modified Iron Chef where the entries will be the feast for the event. Make new friends, combine resources and talents because due to time and other issues entries will be limited to 3 or 4 teams. Judgeships will be auctioned to off-set costs.
MADNESSS - Ambrosia Wars return; grapes, marshmallows and ladies cleavage, what more could you ask for? Also Death by Dancing and Quick the Bard (better known as combat musical chairs.) Mad! Mad!! Mad!!! This is also the final competition for the Baronial Arts and Sciences competition.
