Event details
We have made it to another harvest!  Hurrah!  Yet, one must ever prepare for the next gaunt days to come.  How do we prepare for the fallow days ahead? The Feast of the Gaunt Days is a chance for the victuallers to show off their prowess!  Pickle the pickles, jerk that meat, salt, dry, preserve and otherwise make the food ready for those days when fresh food is not to be found!
This pot luck is part informal foodie-schola, wherein anyone can either come and just eat and enjoy the day, or show off your finest concoctions for judging and sharing (or just sharing), and part schmoozefest.  The day starts with getting the judging out of the way so that by lunch and throughout the day the rest of us can sample, learn techniques and swap tips.  Those bringing a dish for judging that feeds more than 4 people get a chance at stunning prizes and our deepest gratitude.  Before the event, maybe it is a good time to hold local workshops and teach some classes on preservation? (We have already had a cheese making workshop!  Jealous?) Several guilds sent representatives to the event in the past and are looked for this year.
Prize categories include (but are not limited to):  The Choice of the People, February Fruits, Check Out that Pickle!  Meat Me in the Wintertime, Lenten Lunchtime, Roots for the Home Team, Vegetable from Yestermonth, Blessed Cheesemakers, Drinks that Are not Just Melted Snow, Superb Soups and Stews, You Are So Sweet!  and None of the Above.
