Feast at Spring Crown Tournament

Please join us for the fresh tastes of spring which will accompany the selections of the new heirs to the Dragon throne at the Crown Tournament Feast. The menu selections are based off an actual late-14th or early-15th century dinner held in honor of “In Festo Sancte Trinitatis In Cena” (or the Feast of the Holy Trinity) which falls at the end of May, or the first half of June, eight weeks after Easter. This feast features the new spring delights, cold dishes, and fresh foods, which clearly shows cooks took advantage of the availability of fresh produce and other grocery items typically available during this time of the year. Seating available for 64 guests, pre-register or tickets available at the door until sold out! (more…)
