The Cooking Collegium is on Saturday and will run throughout the day.

New this year - we will be holding a Period Open Fire Cooking Competition.

The competition will be point based, with points awarded for presentation, taste, and documentation (written or verbal). You will also receive extra points if you teach how to cook your dish during the day at the Cooking Collegium. The dish must be cooked on site over an open fire.

If you are interested in teaching a class or entering the competition, or for more information, please contact the Cooking Coordinator.

Coordinator: Lady Aubrey Ericstochter
