Ludwig's Friday Dinners have become famous in our Barony over the last several years. He has a standard menu of corned beef (with various sauces), pease pottage, a selection of roast vegetables and of course fresh bread.
Porridge, stewed fruit and some selection of bacon, scrambled eggs, sausages, and mushrooms; plus bread, milk, butter, sugar, tea, coffee, etc.
We don't try too hard to be medieval before 9am - we prefer happily-caffeinated SCAdians to authentically-grumpy ones.
Pre-plated lunches, inspired by the basket lunches at Darton's May Crown Tournaments and some Canterbury Faires. Please return the plates and napkins to the scullery for washing after lunch.
Lettuce/carrot, cheese, corned beef (optional), biscuits, nuts
Chicken pie (Saturday only): chicken, bacon, beef fat, onions, parsley, chives, eggs, salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, saffron, commercial pastry.
Baked ham (Sunday only)
Mushroom pie (both days): vegetarian, gluten-free, no alliums - for those who can't eat the chicken pie
During the tournament snacks will make the rounds: fruit, nuts, chorizo, etc. Feast left-overs will re-appear at the bonfire late at night.
Tournament snack plan:
- Chorizo (~2 pieces per person) - 24 chorizos (10 slices per chorizo) : $60
- Prunes : $15 (can be skewered together with chorizo for those who don't mind fruit and meat combined)
- Roasted chestnuts (~4 per person) - ~5kg : $20
- Sliced fruit (oranges/apples) - ~4kg : TBD
Our well-tested feast-team: Vettoria di Giovanni da Verona (previously known as Caterine de Vantier) as chef, Anna de Wilde plating, and William de Cameron and Katherina Weyssin managing service and front-of-house. Of course, the feast will be in the style of 16thC Roman popes, because that's what Vettoria does best.
We do our best to cater to any special dietary requirements - please get in touch if you have any concerns.
In the unlikely case that we're just not able to to cater well to you dietary needs, we'll let you know when you book, and discuss alternative arrangements with you - we want everyone well fed and happy!
