We almost made it to the May Day festival at Camlann, but Selene could not work on her period dress until she finished her Neurology paper first. That happened early yesterday, and we spent the entire night and this day sewing the garment. Though not completely done (it still needs some bric-a-brac), it was enough to race over in our chariot to catch the tail end of the day festivities thence proceed to the May Feast, which served us:
TRENCHER BREAD (to eat & to eat upon)
ENGLISH CHEESES (Cotswold & Sage Derby)
A FRITOR of ERBES
A GRETE HERB & FLOWER SALAT
A TART IN YMBRE DAY (onion & current pie)
ROSTE LAMB IN FRESEYES (strawberry sauce)
APULMOS (apple-almond sauce)
MAY WINE - MUSTE (spiced juice)
PEASCODDES (sautéed snowpeas)
CHECONES IN CRITONE (almond & pine nut sauce)
QUALYS ROSTYD with SWETE MUSTARD
FRESH FRUIT OF THE SEASON
PYMENTE (herb-honey wine) - MUSTE
Hey, are you two Gaia Consort fans? If so, and if you're not booked next weekend, they're throwing a Beltaine masque that sounds like ten kinds of fun. I'm sorely tempted to make a run up there on Friday and see if johnpalmer wants to go...

I hadn't heard of them until you mentioned them. I am listening to their music by way of the stream they provide. Very nice! I shall purchase their CDs (nice to see more non-RIAA music).
Selene will be out of town that weekend, but I'd go. Give me a call if you are going up to see them.
Thanks! The food Camlann serves is delicious. They have a cookbook out, The Bors Hede Boke of Cookry: Food and Cooking in 14th & 15th Century England. Each recipe has the original old english and the source, and then a modern-style presentation with a clear list of ingredients and directions for the modern kitchen. I definitely want to make that Onion and Currant Tart! Yum!
