The Kingdom of Caid is proud to host The Society for Creative Anachronism's West Coast Culinary Symposium in 2020. This multi-Kingdom, 3-day event will be a chance for like-minded and enthusiastic people to get together and share their love and knowledge of pre-1600 period cooking and practices and share the tasty results. It is also a time to gather as friends, make new ones, share ideas, and teach our skills to others hoping to learn.
This year we will be adding a full brewing track as well as some bardic and fiber activities! There's truly something for everyone! We are excited to announce our Keynote speaker is none other than the co-author of "An Early Meal- A Viking Age Cookbook and Culinary Odyssey", Hanna Tunberg. Hanna hails from the Kingdom of Drachenwald. She earned a Master’s degree in Medieval Archaeology and uses her knowledge to work her way through thousands of years of food history. She has given lectures and workshops on medieval cooking around Europe and is now headed to the New World. This action-packed event will be held April 24-26, 2020 at Camp Wrightwood in Wrightwood, CA. Participants will be comfortably lodged in heated cabins with access to several onsite kitchens and outdoor cooking areas.
