Feasts are the center of much medieval reenactments. We have medieval themed diners based on medieval dishes of Europe and the Outremer.Often the day will be filled with archery,Tourney fighting and other games. Later comes dancing, storytelling,music and other activities mixed in with lavish feasts. Often meals will last for hours with exotic and multiple removes (courses).
Good starting feast gear is simple, Wooden bowls and plates are always good as are mugs,cups and candlesticks. Your collection of tableware will increase as you learn what is period styled and what is modern. No one expects you to have everything at start. If all you have is glass then bring it, if you have pottery or other items by all means use them. If you have questions just ask a member and they will be glad to help.
